Delicious! I added about 1/2 t peppermint oil to chocolate for an extra kick of mint. YUM!

I was tired of making the same fudge every year. I tried this one and we loved it! I will make this one every year now!

A very simple recipe to follow, the second batch I skipped the crushed candy on top and still got happy faces.

I'm one of those people who don't like nuts in my fudge. I loved the peppermint-chocolate flavors. This will be on the plate of homemade candies every Christmas from now on.

Yum!

I am a terrible fudge-maker, but this always comes out perfectly! Easy to make, and definitely delicous.

I have found this a great creamy fudge which I can convert to use year round by using various seasonal mints to serve those of us who LOVE creamy fudge!

Great Fudge!
