Peppermint Fudge

Peppermint Fudge

This endlessly customizable fudge is the blank canvas of holiday treats. Use any crushed candy you like, and add your favorite nuts, cookies, and extracts. It's the perfect gift or potluck dessert, but we wouldn't blame you if you kept it all for yourself.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Try varying the extract (coffee, maple, rum, orange extract) and top with different ingredients (Heath Bar crumbles, crushed graham crackers, chopped pecans, candied orange)
  • Drop a square of fudge into some hot milk to make instant hot cocoa!
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
