4 ingredient peppermint fudge - My Whole Food Life


This 4 Ingredient Peppermint Fudge is vegan, gluten free, paleo and raw.  My husband said they would also be great with a little chocolate drizzle over the top.

I bet my 3 ingredient chocolate bar recipe would be perfect for that.  For the candy cane garnish on these, I used these dye free candy canes.

I got mine at Whole Foods, but you can probably find them at most health food stores and I will also provide the Amazon link for you.

  1. Every time I try to blend coconut butter in a food processor it gets really crumbly and never really smooths out, even if I warm up the jar ahead of time. Am I doing something wrong here, should I try a different brand...?
  2. Would using a pure peppermint essential oil work instead of peppermint extract? I cannot have anything with alcohol in it. I can't wait to try this recipe.. but then I love all your recipes! YUM.
    1. Thanks Mary! I am not familiar with peppermint essential oil. Is it one you can digest? You may be able to find an alcohol free peppermint extract.
    1. Real butter may work. If you try, please let me know the results! Just for the record, you can't taste the coconut. All I could taste was the peppermint in these!
  3. Hi Melissa, I love your blog and all your recipes! I recently started my own lifestyle/ food blog as well, and I'm currently working on a post where I'm sharing some holiday recipes. I was wondering if it was okay to feature this one in my post, by using one of your pictures and linking it to here. I will of course give you all the proper credits. Please let me know, thanks!
