So I just ate my weight in sugar cookies and Mint Kit Kats and hid the evidence in my pocket before anyone could see, but it’s probably okay since I ate 80% of two heads of roasted broccoli for dinner. RIGHT?

Speaking of roasted broccoli, it’s my crack. I can’t get enough! Are you guys with me on that? What camp do you sit in? Pro roasted broccoli? Or do you think it’s the Devil’s work?

My entire family thinks the latter: roasted broccoli (that is, broccoli roasted in the oven so it tastes nutty and crunchy and, well, roasted instead of boiled to death in water and left to limp on the plate) is Satan’s work. They hate it. They choke down the required florets like it’s water torture.

I know this, but I make it anyway. Hey, cooks choice. Also: more for me!

Easy Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge

Something that is not roasted broccoli and is way better? Peppermint bark. I inhale it every year. 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.)

More for me!

Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge - this EASY fudge recipe has a chocolate Oreo layer and a white chocolate peppermint layer, just like the bark!

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.

I mean…Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge. Need I say more?

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

A few tips for this Oreo Peppermint Bark Fudge success:

  • 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


  • 1 cup from a 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk (regular or fat-free), divided
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract divided
  • 1 cup chopped Oreos about 8
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes or peppermint pieces plus more for topping (about 3-4 candy canes)


  • Line an 8x8 or 9x9 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. Love roasted broccoli ( steamed – not so much).  I also love peppermint w/ chocolate -thanks for another inspired recipe!  This will hold me until Girl Scout thin mints comes around in a few months.

  2. I’m making peppermint fudge to give as gifts next week.  There’s no better Christmas treat. The Oreo part makes it even better.

  3. Pro-roasted broccoli all the way.  It will forever have a spot on my dinner plate.  🙂
    This fudge looks so good.  From about December 1st to January 5th I continuously crave the combination of peppermint and chocolate, so I think this would be really good for me.  

  4. I love all the tips and tricks you give…like water killing chocolate, where to buy the precrushed candy cane bits and to use a board or your grout will have candy cane dust! Stuff like that is always awesome! 🙂

    And this fudge is SO YOU! Everything about it is your jam!

    I don’t even roast my broccoli anymore. Takes too long…lol. I broil it!! It’s done in like 8 minutes. You have to be really careful though or it can go from raw to burnt in 5 seconds, as can everything under the broiler. I do a big tray of broccoli and brussles sprouts like that almost every night! And then either hit them with balsamic reduction from TJs or salsa depending on my weird mood 🙂

    1. That’s great to know about the broiling. Totally going to try that next time! I need to pick up that TJs balsamic – and their salsa, it’s the only kind I eat!

  5. Out of all the things I’ve made I’ve never tried making fudge. That makes me sad, I think this would be a great recipe to stay with. Yum! It would be perfect for goody bags.

  6. Anytime I see anything peppermint, I think of my son.  The boy is crazy for the chocolate-peppermint combo and I have to make treats like that at x’mas (just did some cookies).  This is even better when we’re talking oreo and fudge!  Nice!!  
    On the broccoli debate, I’m with you.  Roasted veggies are just good! 

  7. Roasted, roasted, roasted. I don’t truck with limp steamed broccoli unless there’s cheese sauce somewhere!
    This is gorgeous. It’s the best candy mashup of the season!
