This 5 Ingredient White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge is not only delicious, but so fun and EASY to make with your kids! Just throw the white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and peppermint extract into a bowl and microwave it! It doesn’t get much easier than that and the results are pure bliss. This fudge will make the perfect, easy Christmas present for your neighbors and coworkers.
This was the perfect recipe to make with my 4 year old daughter. She loved pouring all the ingredients into the bowl and I loved that the ingredients are low risk for epic messy disasters. Oh boy…check out the mess we had when I tried to teach her to crack an egg! LOL…she keeps asking me if she can crack an egg again and I continue to avoid it like the plague. Does anyone else remember that goofy kids’ show called “Double Dare”? Well, I keep having nightmares about my kids sliding on their stomachs through the kitchen floor covered in raw eggs.
Okay, I couldn’t resist looking up an episode. HA…they slide through potatoes and sundae syrup in it (close enough to my nightmare). We also had another incident a couple nights ago. My one year old decided to do a “I Love Lucy” reenactment similar to when Lucy smashes grapes with her feet to make wine. In my case, my daughter stomped on a bowl of cranberries that she dumped all over the kitchen floor (I had just used them to make my Orange Cranberry Mimosa Floats…SOOO Good.)
Well, I am back to writing my posts after hours tonight to avoid collateral damage! 🙂 Hope you have as much fun as I did making this easy recipe with your kids!
- 3 1/2 C. White Chocolate Chips

- 2 Tsp. Peppermint Extract
- Crushed Candy Canes to taste I used around 1/2 C.
Add white chocolate chips, butter, sweetened condensed milk and peppermint extract to a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for around 2 and a half minutes (or until chocolate chips are completely melted); stirring halfway through cooking time.
Stir until thoroughly combined; pour into a greased 8X8 baking pan.

Lightly press candy canes into the fudge.
Refrigerate until firm (around 1-2 hours)
