Peppermint Fudge

Peppermint Fudge

Are you scurrying around trying to find an easy sweet treat to bring to your Holiday party?
I totally have you covered. You’re welcome.

Peppermint Fudge.

While I am a huge peppermint fan, I didn’t want my fudge to be all Peppermint-y in the fudge itself. Sooooo, I just stole some candy canes off the Christmas tree, crushed them up and threw them on the fudge.

Just the right amount of peppermint.

I have been told by everyone who tastes my fudge, it is the best fudge they have tasted. I have posted it on my site before…The Best Ever Fudge.

You know what, the recipe is right on the back of the Kraft Jet Puffed Marshmallow Cream Jar.
Their technical term for their recipe is “Fantasy Fudge”

Anyhooo, spruce up your fudge with some stolen candy canes for the perfect Holiday Treat!

    I started making your original fudge when you posted it a few years ago and you are right, people say it is the best fudge ever. The addition of the candy canes makes it perfect for the holidays.
