This was by far the most delicious, creamy, and easiest fudge I have ever made! I added a little more peppermint extract when I made my second batch, to give it a bit more puch. Thanks so much, this will become a new festive holiday tradition!

I made this with the kids last night with ingredients I dug out of the pantry for a quick treat. I took another reviewer's suggestion and doubled the peppermint extract. Very simple for little hands and the three of us (my husband opted out) thought this was very tasty. Huge hit in this house!


This fudge is OK. It has a great texture and couldn't be easier, but I agree that it just basically tastes like melted chocolate chips. I even used Ghirardelli chips to try to up the quality, but still tasted like chips. Also, my extract was imitation, which I think may have made it less than it could have been. I may try it again with pure exract, but I'll probably try something else first. And this calls for way more crushed candy than is necessary.
