How to Make Peppermint Oreo Fudge Recipe
Gather your ingredients for the fudge.
First up, prep your casserole pan by lining it with parchment paper and set it aside for when you get the fudge ready.
Next, pull out a large saucepan and add the white chocolate chips, butter, and condensed milk, heating over low heat.
Cook these ingredients together for about 8 to 10 minutes. What you’re looking for here is everything getting completely melted.
Stir it frequently using a rubber spatula if you have one.
When this mixture is melted, you’ll add in both the peppermint and vanilla extracts, stirring again until these have blended into your fudge mixture.
Add some drops of the red food dye to the pan and stir until you get the color you want.
Break up some of the Oreos, add them to the pan, and stir.
I added the cookies to a bag and gently broke the pieces up with a rolling pin. I did the same thing for the candy canes.
After that, take the saucepan from the heat and pour the fudge mixture into the center of your lined pan.
Use the spatula to scrape all the excess fudge out.
Add a sprinkle of sea salt to the top of the fudge, as well as a few more crushed Oreos and broken-up candy canes.
Just a note that the candy canes are optional in this, but they add a festive look and a nice extra crunch.
Place your fudge in the fridge, where you’ll want to let it chill for a minimum of two hours.
After that, you can pull the parchment paper from your pan and set it down on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut your fudge, making 12 perfect pieces.
This easy fudge recipe is the perfect fudge for beginners. Once you get comfortable making fudge this way, you can really add some variety.

How to Store This Spectacular Holiday Fudge
After the fudge sets up in the refrigerator, it doesn’t need to be refrigerated again unless you want to.
Put it in an airtight container, and it will keep on your counter for up to a week or in the fridge for two to three weeks.
If you’re going to keep it out of the fridge, make sure it never gets above room temperature. Otherwise, you’re going to have a melted mess, which will probably still taste good but not look presentable for guests or gift-giving.
