White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge Tips
How do you crush peppermint candy?
To make crushing peppermints easy, unwrap the candies, place them in a resealable plastic bag, and then give the bag a few good whacks with a rolling pin or measuring cup!
Can you freeze white chocolate peppermint fudge?
Peppermint fudge can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months. Place it in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper. If your freezer is full to the brim, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or at room temperature for 1 day—any longer and the peppermint fudge will dry out.
Can you use white chocolate chips instead of white baking chips in this recipe?
White baking chocolate contains more cocoa butter than white chocolate chips
, and the chips also have added stabilizers to withstand baking—so it’s best to stick to baking chocolate for this recipe. If you like, two substitutions you can make in this recipe include swapping crushed cinnamon candies for the peppermints and cinnamon extract for the peppermint to give this fudge a spicy twist.
