Oh, and if you wondered where I’ve been for the last three months, well, I was in bed! I’m happy to say that I’m pregnant (yay!) but the first trimester was not an easy one and I was too ill to cook, develop recipes, or even write blog posts. But now I’m back, baby! And I’m ready to get cooking, and baking, and blogging, and my favourite thing…eating!
So, this Three-Ingredient Peppermint White Chocolate Fudge…here’s how to make it!
Three-Ingredient Peppermint White Chocolate Fudge
This creamy fudge is studded with chunks of candy cane and can be made from pantry ingredients in less than 5 minutes! Perfect to give as a gift or for a last minute dessert!
- 2 c. chocolate chips
- 1/2 can condensed milk (about 150 g.)
- 3 candy canes, crushed
- In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the condensed milk and chocolate chips until melted and combined.
- Pour into a 9 x 9 square pan lined with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top and chill until firm.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!
I used candy canes leftover from the previous Christmas, and crushed them using a mortar and pestle. You could also put them in a sturdy sandwich bag and hit them with a rolling pin to crush them. Whatever works for you!

I like to make this fudge (or a variation on it) every Christmas, to put inside the cookie/treat tins that I like to give to friends and family. It’s SUCH an easy thing to do and keeps so well. Often I start making Christmas candy in November for my treat tins, and then just add in the freshly baked cookies a day or so before handing out the tins. Pacing myself with the baking/treat-making means that I don’t burn out in December trying to get everything done! (And people are always impressed with the variety of items in the treat tins!)
As I type this, I’m sitting beside a fresh Christmas tree, all fragrant with pine and draped with twinkly lights and tinsel, eating some Christmas sweets. There’s nothing quite like a cozy evening in with treats, especially some Three-Ingredient Peppermint White Chocolate Fudge!
Next Post: Maybe my Shortcut Spanakopita Hot Pockets…or maybe something sweet! I’ll see what my pregnant self can eat and go from there! Any requests?

CONGRATULATIONS!! Thrilled for you! I hope you enjoy lots of treats this holiday season! Take care xo
Thanks so much, Mardi! Happy hols (and eating and running!) to you too!
I am late replying because I haven’t had internet for a while. It is enough to drive a person crazy. What matters is that you are pregnant!!!! How awesome!!! Congratulations! I know it sounds trite, but every little one is worth all the problems. I was once told that as I leaned my head into a toilet and lost my lunch. It was true then and is still true today.
Thanks, Jeannie! Yes, it will definitely be worth it! 9 months of unrelenting discomfort (I’m still having 24/7 morning sickness, and I’m about to start my third trimester, and that’s just ONE symptom) but a whole lifetime of joy. 🙂 Watching my daughter grow up is a daily pleasure, so I’m looking forward to having another little girl!
