This Peppermint Fudge recipe is bursting with 2 layers of peppermint and 2 layers of fudge-y goodness! It’s one of the best simple fudge recipes for Christmas dessert platters, or even Valentine’s Day!
The Perfect Peppermint Fudge Recipe
Yes…more peppermint and chocolate. I know there are oodles of peppermint fudge recipes out there, but most just call for sprinkling some crushed peppermints on top of the fudge. I wanted something more. So I thought, why not add a layer of crushed candies into the middle of my peppermint fudge?!?!? Brilliant! And this fudge was a hit at our last party.
A little warning though; the fudge is extremely rich, so cut the pieces small. My 9×9 pan of fudge was cut into about 30 pieces. Yes it really is that rich! But oh so good and totally delightful! That creamy chocolatey fudge with the crunch and spice from the peppermint go so well together.
The Importance of Quality Ingredients in Fudge Recipes
I’m getting on my soapbox for a minute….use a good quality chocolate when making this peppermint fudge recipe. The chocolate is the star of the show, so please, please, PLEASE don’t skimp on it!
I used my new Precision Elite scale from EatSmart to weigh about my chocolate chips. I’m totally in love with this scale…my old one died recently and so I was super excited to give this one a try. I love the large display, the large platform, and the ability to switch from grams, to ounces, to kilograms, to pounds easily. I found it for a great price on Amazon!
Disclaimer: EatSmart sent me a scale to try. It’s on my holiday gift guide because I loved it so much. I was not compensated for my review, all opinions, photos, and recipes are my own.
