There is a severe deficit of fudge recipes on this site. To date we have just one (but it’s awesome so maybe it’s ok?): caramelized white chocolate fudge

And the thing about fudge, especially this kind, is that it’s so ridiculously easy to make. You throw a few ingredients into a pot, heat to melt, heat a bit more, then pour into a pan to set. 

That’s it. 

Well, we’re going to swirl in some chocolate too. It’s a worthy extra step. 


Ingredients You’ll Need 

White chocolate: Use good quality! Check the ingredients, does it have cocoa butter? This is a good indicator. I used Guittard’s white chocolate chips. 


Sweetened condensed milk: Comes in a can! 


Dark Chocolate: I always say chocolate of about 70% cocoa solids but I recognize that might be too dark for some, this recipe will do fine with anything at 70% or as low as milk chocolate. 


Peppermint Extract: Use a good quality, start with 1 tsp and taste. Add more if you want the mint flavor stronger. 


Gel Food Coloring: I like to use a mix of dark green and turquoise. 


How to make Mint Chocolate Fudge: It’s too Easy 

  1. Heat together the white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk 
  2. Stir until melted and shiny
  3. Melt some dark chocolate
  4. Pour into a square pan (or use a loaf pan for thicker pieces) 
  5. Swirl in the dark chocolate
  6. Set at room temperature for 4 hours or in the fridge for two
  7. Slice!

  • 475 g white chocolate chips
  • 397g or 1 can can sweetened condensed milk
  • 75 g dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • ¾ - 1 tsp peppermint extract greater amount if you want it very minty
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • Green & turquoise food coloring


  • Prepare an 8x8” square pan with parchment paper. For thicker slices use a loaf pan.
  • Warm the dark chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir and leave for a minute then return to the microwave for another minute. Stir until smooth.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk and chips into a pot and stir. Turn the heat on low and cook, stirring frequently, until the chocolate is all melted and the mix is smooth. Turn the heat off and add the extract, paste, salt and food coloring. Stir until smooth.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Dollop large circles of dark chocolate over the fudge. Use an offset spatula or a toothpick to swirl it. Cover with foil and set in the fridge to chill, about 4 hours.
  • Slice with a chef's knife. Store in an airtight container. In the fridge it will last about 2 - 3 weeks, at room temp about 1 week.

  1. I should have known better as soon as I read melt the white chocolate over heat in the condensed milk. First thing I thought was ” that chocolate is going to seize”. But hey, maybe the condensed milk would insulate the white chocolate and prevent it from seizing. NOPE! It immediately turned to dough.
