Three ingredients and 5 minutes (or less) is all you need to make this festive Peppermint Fudge!
Unlike most fudge recipes, this festive fudge doesn’t contain chocolate. It has light peppermint flavor and a beautiful pink hue.
I was inspired to make this Peppermint Fudge while making a frosting the other day. I decided to give it a try and just love the way it turned out. I am not a fan of chocolate and mint, but this is totally different and very easy to make.
This is the perfect holiday treat. If you share candy and cookie trays with friends during the holiday season, this Peppermint Fudge will be a refreshing change from the usual chocolate filled trays.

Peppermint Fudge (no chocolate) / Call Me PMc
A beautiful light pink in color, this festive peppermint fudge takes only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to make. Unlike most traditional fudge recipes, this unique fudge doesn't contain chocolate. Don't let that deter you, it's a wonderfully tasty treat, that's perfect for gifts.
- 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
- 1/2 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips
- 5 to 6 cups powdered sugar
- Line a 8x8 in cake pan or casserole dish with heavy duty aluminium foil or waxed paper allowing the foil to extend over the edge 2 to 3 inches (you'll use this as handles to pull fudge out of pan). Spray with non-stick spray. In an electric mixer beat cream cheese until soft. Place 1/4 cup of the Andes Peppermint Crunch in a zip top bag and crush slightly. Add the 1/4 cup crushed candies and the 1/4 c un-crushed candies to the cream cheese. Mix until completely incorporated (the cream cheese should turn a light pink). Turn the mixer to low speed and add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time to the mixer. Combine completely before adding another cup of sugar. The mixture needs to be really stiff and dry(ish). To test, pinch some of the fudge off and roll it into a ball, if it stays in the ball without going flat it's thick enough. Add more sugar if it's not this consistency.
