Get ready for the holidays with my No Bake Peppermint Fudge recipe!
I got back to Asheville yesterday after having a great Thanksgiving weekend in Hilton Head. I decided to give myself a day to put together my recap, so I'll have it for you tomorrow. But in the meantime I'm breaking out the FA-LA-LA-LA-LA today with a fun must make recipe for this holiday season.
This is no less than my No Bake Peppermint Fudge recipe! It's only four ingredients and two of those are peppermint and nutella... so I imagine you are on board. Right?
The treat kind of tastes like a combination between fudge and candy. It's made with coconut oil, so it sets in the freezer to get hard.
You can leave yours plain or do like I did and top it with white chocolate and more peppermint. It certainly makes it look more festive.
Don't these treats look just perfect for Christmas?
They do like to melt, so make sure to keep them cold. But otherwise these sweet treats could not be easier or more nutella-yyyyy.
I cut my No Bake Peppermint Fudge recipe into big pieces for the photo, but it's just as satisfying and probably more appropriately portioned cut up in bite size pieces. You can leave them in the freezer and enjoy one whenever you have a sweet tooth knocking this holiday season.
I hope you enjoy these bites of holiday happiness as much as I did!
4 Ingredient Peppermint Nutella Fudge
- 2 cups nutella
- ¾ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup crushed peppermint candies or candy canes, divided
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- In a microwave safe dish melt the nutella and coconut oil together. Microwave for 30 seconds first and stir. Microwave for 10 additional seconds at a time until they are liquid enough to stir. Then mix in about half of the peppermint candies.
- Pour the mixture in a 8x8 casserole dish. Put in the freezer to harden up.
- Once it's hard, microwave the white chocolate chips in the same way you did the nutella. For 30 seconds at first. Stir and then heat for an additional 10 seconds until they are melted. Be careful not to burn the chocolate or it will separate.
- Drizzle the chocolate over the frozen fudge. While the chocolate is still melted top with the rest of the peppermint. Put back in the freezer to harden up again.
- Store in the fridge or freezer. It will be a softer consistency if you keep it in the fridge, harder if you keep it in the freezer. It does melt easily, so don't keep it out long!
