This fudge is so easy to make, just 3 ingredients and you’ve got a treat that will impress your family and friends.
I love peppermint. It’s a crazy, stupid kind of love. It borders on obsession really. And I’m totally okay with that.
There is something about the smell of peppermint. It snaps me out of any bad mood. It puts a smile on my face. It makes me mellow out. I dig that.
I also totally dig chocolate. I happen to be Food Fanatic’s Chocolate Fanatic. This in one of my monthly contributions to their site. I love working with the Food Fanatic peeps. They rock my chocolate loving world.
To me nothing signifies Christmas quite like peppermint. Once I see candy canes make an appearance in the stores it really starts to feel like the holidays for me.
One of my favourite things to do during the holidays is put the candy canes on our Christmas tree. It’s a tradition that dates back to me being a kid. I now carry on that tradition with my own kids. Hopefully they will carry it on with their kids in the future.
We have a tendency to buy way too many each year. It’s like we never learn. We buy every flavour and colour they make. I’m partial to the traditional ones, but I also really dig the new cherry ones on the market. They are pretty fabulous.
Just like everyone else out there we always end up with broken ones in each box. No matter how carefully we choose the boxes. It just sort of happens. I think elves break them while we sleep or something. So I use the pieces for making awesome peppermint treats.
This Chocolate Peppermint Fudge is one of my personal favourites. I cannot get enough of this stuff. I swear I may have hid some jut so I could make it last longer. It’s the only way to get to taste any of my own baking. Otherwise it gets gobbled up before I get my share.
My suggestion if you’re worried about sharing is to make more. Try making two or three batches at the same time. Then send me one. It’s just the right thing to do. Santa says so!
