This easy Chocolate Peppermint Fudge will steal the spotlight at any party when you show up with it on your cookie trays.
I am so sorry to do this to you again. No, I’m really not that sorry.
Are you guys completely tired of my peppermint obsession yet? Honest, I have tried jumping off this peppermint train that I am riding. I did share gingerbread, eggnog, and peanut butter last week…but, I just keep coming up with more fun and exciting recipes that use peppermint. I kind of get a one track mind when I get obsessed on something.
Just ask my hubby about the scrapbook phase, the card making phase, and the current food prop phase. He will just roll his eyes and tell you that I am a crazy lady. It’s a good thing he loves me. He puts up with me and my “hobbies” that change all the time.
How about I promise that I won’t take up your feed again with peppermint…at least this week. I can’t make any promises for next week .
I mean it is prime fudge making season. I need to be prepared. And now you will be too.
Have you tried 2 ingredient fudge before? Chocolate chips melted with frosting? It is super easy and just about fail proof.
Sometimes I get lazy in my fudge making. Not that any fudge I make takes very long at all, but this chocolate peppermint fudge is even faster than my other ones. Gotta love that! This one is technically 3 ingredient fudge because I do add butter with the chocolate chips, just so they melt better in the microwave. The butter also helps keep the fudge smooth and creamy.
That’s right. This whole fudge is made in the microwave. Just take it slow…do not try to heat your chips up fast. I promise you, you will burn something if you aren’t careful. And no one likes burned chocolate. It makes me sad when chocolate has to be thrown out.
So listen to me, and only heat your chocolate chips up a little at a time. If you want, you can even heat them on the stove where you can watch them better. But then you can’t say it is microwave fudge. Minor detail!
I used to scrapbook and make paper cards a lot a few years ago. In fact my office could double for a “store” probably. Remember how I said I get a one track mind?
Ok, fine I’m obsessive compulsive and I like to shop. There I said it. Hangs head! Anyway, my hubby is going to be so excited when I tell him I am combining my love of making sweets with making fun paper embellishments.
It has been a while since I busted out the paper and stickers, and I have to tell you that I had a blast making this cute little container. I used a die cut template and added some stickers and twine from my stash. It is such a cute way to gift someone a sweet treat.
Each bag of chocolate peppermint fudge holds 4 pieces. There are only 2 bags in the carrier, but you could easily fit 2 more if you wanted to do a variety of fudge in the container.
