Easy Peppermint Bark Fudge Recipe

A few years ago you might remember I made Oreo Peppermint Bark, which is still one of my most popular holiday recipes. Although, if I’m being honest, it’s not MY recipe, it’s Jordan’s. Totally her brainchild all the way.

In fact, when I showed her this fudge, her exact words were: “YOU STOLE MY IDEA!”

So there’s that. No broccoli for her! Wait…

Anyway, this year I was trying to think of a good fudge to make. I mean, fudge = Christmas, right? I love making fudge this time of year, mostly because my mother-in-law loves it. (But not this one, she doesn’t like peppermint.)

Easy Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge

What’s in Peppermint Bark Fudge?

This EASY fudge recipe combines my favorite three holiday treats: Oreos, fudge, and peppermint bark. I always make no cook fudge, that is, the kind with sweetened condensed milk. The bottom layer is the traditional chocolate layer from peppermint bark, but it’s fudge with chopped up Oreos.

The top layer is white chocolate easy fudge filled with crushed peppermint candies. You can buy them crushed now (some grocery stores, in the holiday baking area) or you can crush your own candy canes. I stirred some into the fudge and then sprinkled more on top.

Oreo peppermint bark fudge looks complicated to make, because of the layers, but it’s not. Yes, you need two pans, but it’s worth it.

Easy Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge - just a few ingredients turns peppermint bark into an easy fudge recipe!

Tips for Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge

  • When you’re making fudge it is important to have everything ready ahead of time. Have your vanilla measured, your salt ready for pinching, and your Oreos and candy canes chopped.
  • You are making two different fudges for this recipe (the dark and the white), so you need two pans or you need to wash a pan in between. It’s an extra step, I know, but it’s worth it. Just make sure that your pan is completely dry if you wash it – water kills chocolate!
  • The can of sweetened condensed milk is 14 ounces by weight. It yields just over 1 cup total. I used 1/2 cup for each fudge layer, so be sure to measure it.
  • Hide it from yourself after you make it. (I say that a lot, don’t I? And I don’t hide things well so…yeah. More broccoli for me!)

This Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge is an EASY fudge recipe! Oreo chocolate fudge is topped with white chocolate peppermint fudge – a gorgeous layered fudge perfect for the holidays.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Yield 48 pieces
Serving Size 1 piece

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup (237ml) sweetened condensed milk (regular or fat-free), (from a 14 ounce can), divided
  • 1 ½ cups (255g) chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract , divided
  • 1 cup chopped Oreos (about 8 regular size Oreos)
  • 1 ½ cups (255g) white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup crushed candy canes or peppermint pieces plus more for topping (about 3-4 candy canes)

Instructions

  • Line an 8×8 or 9×9 square pan with foil (or parchment) and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Important: when you’re making fudge it’s important to have everything ready to go before you begin so you can work quickly once the chocolate melts. Also – if you wash the pan in between layers (instead of using a second pan) be sure it is completely dry. Water kills chocolate!
  • Place the milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and Oreo pieces. Spread in prepared pan. If it’s cool in your house, let it sit for 15-20 minutes, otherwise chill it to set the layer slightly. You don’t want it firm, just not smooshy.
  • Place the white chocolate chips and remaining 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk in a second medium saucepan (or the washed and dried one) over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and peppermint/candy cane pieces. Spread over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candy canes.
  • Let cool to room temperature and then chill to set. (My house was cool enough at 60-65° overnight to set the fudge without having to chill it.) Slice into squares and serve or package for giving. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

  1. This looks so yummy, cant wait to make!!  Question though, why two pans if you are just putting one layer on the other?

  2. This recipe looked amazing, so I just made it! One question: how do you keep your white chocolate white? When I put the peppermint pieces in the melted white chocolate, they started to melt and turned the chocolate pink. Still pretty, but I do like the color contrast with the white. Any advice? Thanks!

    1. As you can see from the photos, mine turned slightly pink too. I think it probably depends on the kind of candy cane you use (different brands melt more/less, like sprinkles) or you could just sprinkle the candy cane on top and not actually stir it in. I wanted the white chocolate layer to taste like peppermint, so I stirred them in. You could add peppermint extract instead, then sprinkle the peppermint pieces on top to keep it white.

  3. Dorothy, you are my Christmas cooking hero. I would love to make everything on your site. And then eat it all myself. And then eat a ton of broccoli to make myself feel better. I have never tried roasted broccoli! Do you have a recipe (or instructions) on here somewhere?

    1. Haha thank you! I don’t have one on here, but I just toss it with olive oil and salt and pepper, then roast it on 400°F until it’s browned!

  4. I can’t wait till tomorrow morning!! Your recipes sound fantastic. I have never roasted broccoli but I will from now on. Thanks.

  5. Want to know something? I don’t really like fresh broccoli, but roast it and I can’t get enough of it.  It’s crazy good that way!  I love that we are always on the same brain wave with treats…wait until you see the fudge I post later this week.  It’s similar but different! 🙂  I would definitely eat way too much fudge if this was in front of me!

  6. I don’t even like fudge, but I am drooling on my keyboard – and I LOVE roasted broccoli – so the veg totally cancels out the sugar
