  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 1 - 12 oz. package white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 2 c. coarsely chopped or broken pretzels
  • 1/2 c. Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips or similar


  • Coat a 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the butter, powdered sugar, and milk.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until well-combined.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 6 minutes without stirring.
  • Reduce heat to low, and add in white chocolate chips, stirring until they're mostly melted.
  • Remove from heat, and mix in peppermint extract.
  • Carefully transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  • On low speed, gradually increasing mixer speed to medium, mix for about 1 minute, or until mixture is completely smooth.
  • Gently fold in peppermint baking chips and pretzels.
  • Immediately spread into prepared pan. Fudge sets quickly!
  • Garnish with sprinkles and a few additional pretzels, if desired, lightly pressing them into the fudge.
  • Refrigerate until set.
  • Cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.


Update 12.14.19: I had a reader who wrote in that she planned to make mini muffin cups of fudge (love this idea!!), and the fudge was setting a bit too fast. I think this could probably be done if you act super quickly and know ahead of time that it's fast-setting. Now I've updated the notes, so hopefully that info helps someone else if they have a similar idea!
