Every year, I get requests from friends and family for fudge gift boxes. I love baking gifts. Fudge is the perfect thing to make for the holidays. Whilst I do attempt new flavors and combinations each Christmas, sometimes the requests are for firm favorites too. My Peppermint White Chocolate Fudge Recipe is one of the most requested ever so I thought I would share it with you here.
White chocolate and peppermint fudge is a delicious combination because you taste the creamy white chocolate first and the peppermint after taste is a special delight. And you are left with mint fresh breathe!
Like most of my fudge recipes, they are super easy and don’t take a lot of fancy equipment and time. After all, we all are busy enough during the holidays.

Hopefully these photo steps above help you along the way if it’s your first time making fudge. Don’t let it stick to the bottom and make sure you don’t overcook it either. Three minutes of a rolling boil always does the trick for my fudge recipe so no need for thermometers and temperatures.
Do you make homemade food gifts for your friends and family?
It’s a lovely way to share the festive spirit when we can’t all be together during the holidays this year. Covid really has a lot to answer for!
Have any favorite flavors I should try next? We love good topping suggestions too. What should I put on my next batch of Caramel Milk Chocolate Fudge squares? Perhaps some walnuts or maybe from fruit?
Quick and easy recipe for the whole family to share and love. Just be sure you make enough for yourself! I tend to eat one batch while making another batch for friends and family. It’s too good not to!
As always, if you try one of my recipes please share on social media and tag me in so I can re-share your creation. I love seeing how others adapt my recipes, add to them or even just try them!
