Gluten Free Christmas Treats: White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge Recipe

December 4, 2012

Hands up those that love making yummy treats for Christmas! My hand is way up and I have some great recipes to share with you and they are of course, all gluten free.

I got this very yummy recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction – she calls it Candy Cane Chocolate Swirl Fudge

Gluten Free White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge


Ingredients to make Fudge

  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate melts – I used Cadbury’s (check the packet – not all brands are gluten free)
  • 1 x 3697g can condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint essence
  • 6 peppermint candy canes, crushed
  • 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips – I used Coles Home Brand (again, check the packet to make sure gluten free)


  •  Put the white chocolate melts and condensed milk into a saucepan and heat on low heat
  • While it’s heating, stir the mixture constantly to stop the mixture browning on the bottom and edges of the pan. Stir until the chocolate melts are melted.
  • Take it off the heat and stir in the peppermint essence and most of the crushed candy canes.
  • Pour into a baking tray or dish lined with baking paper.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and swirl them through the fudge
  • Sprinkle the rest of the crushed candy canes on top.
  • Put it into the fridge to set, mine took 12 hours!
  • Slice, serve and enjoy!
Peppermint Fudge

Notes: to easily crush candy canes, keep them in their wrappers and hit them with the end of a rolling pin. (I got this tip from Planning with Kids, go and check out her Candy Cane Freckles, yummy!) Make sure you get the peppermint ones and make sure they are gluten free. I haven’t come across any that are not but it is always best to check.

This can be easily made for Christmas Gifts, last year I wrote a post sharing some other yummy christmas treats. 

Have you had a chance to do some Christmas Cooking?

    Hi, yum recipe but more importantly – this will be our first Christmas since my 11 yo son’s coeliac diagnosis and he LOVES candy canes with a passion (they really are Christmas for him) and I just thought they would have gluten in them and was working out how to ease his pain of not being able to have them and you have made my day!! Thank-you!! And a good lesson for me, don’t assume…

      It is just one of those things, they always seem to be made with corn glucose syrup. So glad he won’t miss out. Thanks for stopping by.
