This 3-layer peppermint fudge has a Oreo cookie base, a strip of classic white fudge, and is topped with vibrant red fudge, crushed candy canes, and sprinkles.
Oreo Crust ‣ 28 Oreos ‣ 5 tablespoon butter, melted White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge ‣ 3 tablespoon unsalted butter ‣ 4 cup miniature marshmallows ‣ 14 ounce sweetened condensed milk, (1 can) ‣ 3 cup white chocolate chips ‣ 1 teaspoon peppermint extract ‣ red food coloring, (optional) ‣ 3 candy canes, crushed (optional) ‣ sprinkles, (optional)
In a food processor, blend together the Oreo cookies and melted butter until crumbly and smooth.
Pour the Oreo mixture into an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil, then press it down into a firm, even layer. Set the dish aside for now.
In a deep saucepan (I like to use a dutch oven) over medium-low heat, melt the butter, then toss in the mini marshmallows and sweetened condensed milk. Cook and stir constantly until marshmallows have melted.
Remove the saucepan from heat and mix in the white chocolate chips, stirring until melted. Finish by adding in the peppermint extract, then stirring until incorporated.
Pour half of the peppermint fudge mixture into the baking dish with the Oreo crust, then use a spatula to smooth out the top into an even layer.
Add red food coloring to the remaining fudge, then mix well. Pour the red fudge over the white fudge layer, then decorate with candy and sprinkles.
