  • 1 jar vanilla frosting
  • 12 ounces white chocolate candy melts
  • green gel coloring
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • sprinkles (optional)


  • Line an 8x8 pan with foil.
  • Microwave the frosting on 50% power until slightly runny (about 30-40 seconds). Stir in peppermint extract and gel coloring. You want to make the frosting a little darker than you want the fudge as the chocolate melts will lighten it.
  • Microwave the candy melts on 50% power stirring every 30 seconds until almost completely melted.
  • Gently stir the melts and the frosting together and spread into prepared pan. Add sprinkles if desired. Refrigerate 30 minutes and cut into squares or with cookie cutters.
  • In this size pan, the fudge pieces are about ⅝" thick. If you'd like a thicker fudge, you can double the recipe.

    1. Thanks for the love, Kennedy! You can find the recipe by using the “jump to recipe” button at the top of the post.

    1. I use gel. Depending on the type of chocolate you are using water based coloring can react and cause the chocolate to seize. If you do use liquid, I would recommend adding it to the frosting before mixing in the chocolate.

  1. Holly, Awesome easy fudge recipe!!! Comes out just gorgeous!
    Would love to add it to our St Patty’s Day Front Page Features
