3 Minute Chocolate Peppermint Fudge


(post contains affiliate links see disclosure)

Chocolate peppermint fudge is a variation of my simple fudge.

Chocolate peppermint fudge Just 3 ingredients and takes just 3 minutes to make

It tastes amazing and is always quick to disappear at holiday gatherings. My kids love it and make sure to sneak a piece before the plate arrives at any Christmas events.

The only changes to the original recipe is to add 2 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candies instead of the normal 3 cups chocolate chips.

I get all my ingredients at Aldi.


If you want your peppermint fudge to look even more festive, spread approx.  1/8th of a cup of crushed peppermints  all over the top of the fudge before placing it in the freezer to firm up. To get it to stick  gently press in the crushed candies with your fingers.

My daughter’s favorite job is unwrapping all the peppermints for my peppermint recipes year after year. I am so thankful she loves doing this as it saves me a lot of time and I like talking to her as I make the Christmas treats.
