Christmas is over and the new year has begun! I bet you’ve put away all the decorations, or are getting ready to very soon. Me? They’re still going strong, but it’s mostly because I really like Christmas lights. But don’t you know it, I have a massive stash of candy canes plaguing every corner of my home! I really needed to rid myself of these bothersome creatures, and what better way than to whip up my favorite last hurrah batch of white chocolate peppermint fudge!
Say hello to the new year with decadent deliciousness, while simultaneously ridding yourself of the leftovers of Christmas. It’s pure genius, if I do say so myself. This recipe is so easy, too, that you’ll be enjoying your own batch of white chocolate peppermint fudge in no time. Start with some sugar, margarine (seriously, skip the butter on this one), and evaporated milk .Boil it for five minutes, then remove from heat.
Add the white chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla and stir until thoroughly melted and combined. And delicious.

- 3⁄4 C Margarine

- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 C Candy Canes, crushed
- In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, margarine, and evaporated milk.
- Bring to a rolling boil on medium heat, continuing to boil for five minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, then add the white chocolate chips and stir until melted, then add the marshmallow creme and vanilla, stirring until completely melted and combined.

Because you know you are going to take a taste. I always do. Yum. Stir in some crushed candy canes and pour the whole thing into a greased dish, topping it with more of those pesky candy cane pieces. Let it set. Cut. Devour! Essentially, this white
chocolate peppermint fudge is just a twist of the traditional fudge recipe, but man, when you taste it, you’ll be on a whole different level of sweet sweet deliciousness.
