Peppermint chocolate fudge

It’s Monday, November 17th the year 2014 and I’m officially turning myself in for decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Christmas is BY FAR my favorite holiday of the year and I would break out the décor in August if I could. Don’t get me wrong I love Thanksgiving and what it is all about but this year my daughter’s birthday falls on this holiday and I really want to separate them.

Maybe I’m just trying to find an excuse to bust out the red and green. I hate that we only get to keep up the decorations for a month; I would totally be THAT neighbor who kept everything up year round.

Yes, that would totally be me. Don’t worry guys I take down my tree, lights and decorations right after New Years.

With all this Christmas talk it’s time to talk about my holiday favorites for this time of year. Edible gifts (especially if they involve chocolate), bath and body works holiday candles, apple cider and wait for it… International Delight’s holiday flavors.

You know how I love my ID and I was beyond ecstatic when I saw their holiday line in the grocery store about two weeks ago. If they can come out early with their Christmas stuff, then surely I can too.

For the past week I’ve been sipping away on my chocolate peppermint truffle creamer and decided that chocolate and coffee work so well together that it was time to make some fudge.

Peppermint chocolate fudge in fact. It pairs nicely with a hot cup of coffee or an afternoon snack. Box it up and give it as a gift to neighbors for the holidays.

Now I’ve got to go eat some fudge. PS…. There eggnog is also out in stores.

  1. I am sucker for all things peppermint

  2. There’s something about peppermint and chocolate that totally gets me in the mood for Christmas. Those little squares of fudge look addictive!

  3. I have to agree what gorgeous fudge! Plus peppermint and chocolate
    love each other!!! And I love them together too.

  4. Ooh…peppermint fudge sounds so dreamy! This would be a great gift, for sure! I don’t blame you for starting to decorate already. It’s all I can do to stop myself from blasting Christmas music, especially since it’s already snowing where I live.

  5. I’ll totally forgive you for Christmassing before Thanksgiving 😉 Esp because chocolate is involved. It’s getting harder and harder to resist the Christmas this year- this might put me over the edge.

  6. I made your fudge but I made it cherry and added walnuts,it is divine thank you for the recipe without the marshmallow cream that seems to be in so many others

  7. I made this fudge last night and I can’t wait to try it!

    I couldn’t find that ID, but I used Peppermint Patty instead, thought that was a close match.

    It was hard to spread into the chocolate, but maybe I was to excited and i didn’t get the chocolate hot enough? The peppermint mix became more like marzipan rather than light and fluffy, but still tasted amazing!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Morning Shelby,
      You will definitely have to come back and report what you think after you try it out. When I made the fudge the peppermint patty mixture it was definitely not as smooth as chocolate but once you incorporate it into the chocolate by making the swirls you are good to go.

    • It was quite delicious!! The ID Peppermint Patty worked well i think. I might make a little more next time for extra peppermint, or even top with crushed candy canes. I plan to make another batch to give as gifts for Hanukkah, thank you so much for sharing!

      Any tricks for getting the fudge out of the pan easier? I thought with doing it with the wax paper it would pop out.. not exactly haha.

    • So glad to hear that you liked it. Next time spray the wax paper with a little bit of non-stick spray and that should do the trick.
