Peppermint Candy Cane Fudge Recipe

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 . . .)!
