This is the last recipe in my series of holiday season baking treats. This is a super simple recipe for peppermint fudge.
This fudge makes a wonderful gift. I gave most of this to friends and got such great feedback.
Since this is just white chocolate and peppermint, you might be wondering what the dark chunks are? Well... I was baking about 4 things at once and I wasn't paying attention and I burnt the sugar... oops. But on the plus side, it didn't affect the taste at all :)
