Peppermint Patty Fudge

Remember the other day when I was talking about the homemade holiday gifts I was going to make? I mentioned that I wanted to make something sweet. At the time I was thinking cookies. Then I came across this recipe for Peppermint Patty Fudge.

Peppermint Patty Fudge

This fudge is perfectly minty and chocolatey all at the same time. It comes together in no time flat and makes the perfect gift to ship to friends or bring to a hostess over the next couple of weeks. We enjoyed this fudge so much that I had to make a second batch to share with coworkers at a holiday dessert party I hosted last week.

You’ll notice that I cut this fudge into fairly small pieces. It’s pretty intense so I figured I’d keep them small. People can always go back for a second if they want to enjoy more. I can see myself making this fudge throughout the year when I need a quick gift or treat to share. I know most people only enjoy minty desserts in the wintertime, and fudge too, but I love choco-minty desserts all year long!

Peppermint Patty Fudge

Peppermint Patty Fudge makes the perfect hostess or holiday gift and only takes 15 minutes to prepare!

Yield: ~3 dozen pieces

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours

Ingredients:

1 Bag Peppermint Patties

For the Chocolate Fudge
2 cups (12 oz) bittersweet or dark chocolate chips
1 Tbsp butter
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup marshmallow cream
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder

For the White Chocolate Fudge
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Directions:

Prepare the peppermint patties by unwrapping them all and cutting into smaller pieces. Set aside for later.

In a 9x9 pan, gently spray the bottom of the pan with cooking spray and cover the pan with tin foil. Set aside.

In a medium sized pot, combine chocolate chips, butter and sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.

Measure out the marshmallow cream and cocoa powder and set aside.

Combine white chocolate chips, butter and sweetened condensed milk is a separate medium size pot. Set aside.

Start with the chocolate fudge, melt over medium heat, stirring occasionally until chocolate is melted. Whisk vigorously to break up any last chunks. Add marshmallow cream and cocoa powder and stir until well combined. Reduce heat to medium low, and stir occasionally while preparing white chocolate fudge.

For the white chocolate fudge, melt over medium heat, stirring until melted. Keep a close eye on this because if you burn it at all, you will have brown spots in your fudge from the burnt chocolate. Continue to stir until melted and no chunks remain. Remove from heat.

Pour about half of the melted chocolate layer in the bottom of the 9x9 pan, spread evenly to cover.

Next, cover the top with peppermint patty pieces very thoroughly. Save the leftovers for the top. Cover with remaining melted chocolate.

Pour melted white chocolate on top and swirl with a knife.

Cover the top with remaining peppermint patty pieces.

Allow fudge to set in the refrigerator for at least four hours. When ready to serve, remove from fridge for about 20 minutes before cutting. Lift the entire block out of the pan, and peel back the tin foil to cut the fudge.

    I really enjoy your blog, lots of great photos and recipes! These look so good! I love oats, chocolate, and raisins, but have never combined all three.

    These sound wonderful! I’m not huge on raisins either but it sounds like they really work here. I’ll have to try these! 🙂

    This looks really great but I don’t think I can do the raisins–maybe I would make this and then I could give it to other people instead of eating it all myself!

    Ha Kelly! My husband and I take the baked goods to work with us. I am also the girl who always brings a dessert to any gathering. Everyone knows that if we’re hanging out, I’ll probably have desserts in hand. I usually only have about one of whatever I make (hey, I have to taste test my food!)
