Marbled Peppermint Fudge
Marbled Peppermint Fudge is the featured recipe for December 5th of the Food Advent Calendar Spice It Up. Come along for some great holiday recipes from around the world.
Marbled Peppermint Fudge is the smoothest, creamiest fudge you will ever eat–no grainy sugar crystals here. I do not care for a strong mint flavor, so I made this recipe with a hint of mint. However, if you like a stronger mint flavoring, you could increase the peppermint extract. During the holidays, you can find the Ande’s mint baking chips available at the grocery stores. You could also purchase the mints and chop them up yourself. I just like skipping that step so I buy the baking chips. It is very important to boil the sugar and milk mixture exactly nine minutes in order for the fudge to set properly. Don’t rush this process. Marbled Peppermint Fudge would be the perfect ending to Roast Turkey Breast with Ease.

- 12 ounces chocolate chips
- 6 ounces white chocolate chips
- 2 sticks butter, divided

- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 4 1/2 cups sugar
- 12 ounces evaporated milk

To a large bowl add the chocolate chips, 11 tablespoons of butter, pecans, vanilla and 5 ounces marshmallow creme.

In a large pan, heat sugar and evaporated milk, bringing to a full rolling boil while stirring constantly.
Boil 9 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly.

If the remaining chocolate chip mixture in the bowl has thickened up, you may need to put it in the microwave for 30-40 seconds to soften.
