Any Seinfeld fans out there?

Remember that one episode when Kramer is talking about Junior Mints and he says, "It's chocolate. It's peppermint. It's delicious!"

I feel the same exact way, Kramer! Chocolate and peppermint is a match made in heaven.

This fudge is so easy to whip up and is perfect for any holiday party (or if you are having a chocolate mint craving and need a whole pan for yourself . . .)!

Peppermint Candy Cane Fudge
1 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/4 cup peppermint candy canes, crushed

Line an 8x8" baking pan with aluminum foil.
Combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt in a medium saucepan. Turn the heat on to medium heat and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.
Stir in the marshmallows, chocolate chips, vanilla extract and peppermint extract. Stir quickly for 1 minute or until marshmallows are completely melted. Pour chocolate mixture into prepared baking pan and let cool for about a minute. Top with crushed candy canes, pressing in slightly. Place fudge in the fridge and let set for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil.
Makes 48 pieces.

    I tried this fudge. It is delicious, but … the peppermint pieces on top of my fudge melted into the fudge. It left the fudge with a sticky, bumpy top. Not so pretty. But good! I’m not sure where I went wrong.
