This Low Carb White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge is made without sugar or dairy and is the creamiest, healthiest and most festive fudge for the holiday season!
If you happen to be a fudge lover this peppermint fudge will be your next favorite Holiday treat. Believe or not, it's DAIRY FREE, but oh so creamy!
I adapted this recipe from my White Chocolate Fudge recipe I posted last year, changed up just a few ingredients to create this festive fudge for this holiday season!
Just a few sprinkles of sugar-free crushed candy canes and you've got a pretty easy treat to bring to a friends house or family party for the holidays. But if you're not a fan of peppermint just make my white chocolate fudge recipe and add some Christmas colored sprinkles.
I think when it comes to enjoying family and friends during the holidays the best thing one can do is prepare ahead. It relieves stress knowing you've got things in order, you've got a plan, so you can truly enjoy those you love and even dare I say, relax, with them. At least that is my hope.
While I love cookies and my favorite is my grandmother's Pecan Snowballs, easy no bake recipes are honestly my favorite of all.
My holiday baking goodies will include this creamy fudge along with Peanut Butter Blossoms, Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles, Salted Caramel Cashew Fudge, Peppermint Patty Bites, and Paleo Pecan Snowballs!
I hope your Holidays are filled with wonderful family and friends and making sweet memories together!
- Before leaving a comment regarding any of the ingredients, please use the links within the recipe to check out the ingredients I've provided. Thank you!
- I do not have a replacement suggestion for the protein powder.
- I found sugar free candy canes online through Amazon. You could also find some sugar free mints and use them instead of candy canes.
- I highly recommend the peppermint stevia but if you don't have any I would suggest using vanilla liquid stevia. If you don't use any stevia at all, just add a small amount of your favorite sugar free sweetener equal to at least ½ cup sugar, taste and adjust as needed before setting it in the fridge.

Why not call it coconut peppermint fudge. To me the coconut overpowers the peppermint.
I made this tonight and it is phenomenal! I didn't have peppermint stevia, so I added 2 tsp. of peppermint extract and it was perfect for me! Thank you so very much for this wonderful recipe! I can have a fabulous "treat" now and not worry about the carbs!!
I made several keto recipies for Christmas a couple weeks ago. This recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge looked very pretty. I traveled to several stores to find the exact ingredients. Followed the recipe exactly. It was expensive and tasted AWFUL! It did not firm up. Do not make this! Lots of time and money wasted. A big disappointment.
Sorry you had trouble with it not firming up. Can I ask what kind of peppermints you placed on top?
Will it work if you don't have peppermint stevia?
Mine sat in the fridge for 24hrs and never set. They were more like a thick pudding consistency
Do you change out any ingredients?
Just reg stevia and I used a 7x11 pan. Tasted great though.
The fudge I made didn't really set or harden either. It was more like a thick frosting. I put it in the freezer and will try to just keep it there until a few minutes before I want to eat a piece. I'm wondering what I could reduce or add more of to get a more fudgy consistency. I used whey protein powder instead of the vanilla protein brand listed in the ingredients, so maybe that is the culprit.
I would love to try these for my daughter that's very allergic to dairy but LOVES white chocolate. I've done similar recipes in the past but she's not a fan of coconut and finds that things made with coconut milk taste to "coconuty" for her tastes. Do you find that these are more coconuty than mint flavored? Thinking of maybe adding a little mint essential oil to the fudge batter to make the peppermint overwhelm the coconut flavor. Also, any recommendations for a non dairy protein powder with clean ingredients, I haven't found any.
You could increase the mint flavor but it does still have some coconut flavor to it.
Where do you find sugar free candy canes? I have not been able to find any..
Not any more! I just checked and NOBODY has them.
How do u make sugar free buttercream frosting and powered sugar?
