White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge – I am a huge lover of all things peppermint so during the holidays, I’m always looking for something minty to make or bake. It’s the perfect time to overdose on mint, particularly mint paired with chocolate. I intended for this fudge to go to our neighbors and to work with James to share but the portion that was supposed to go to those hungry Air Traffic Controllers never made it.

James refused to take this treat to work and instead wanted to hoard it all for himself. 😉 I can’t blame him, though, this fudge is definitely worth the ridicule he received at work over not bringing it in with him.

It’s rich, smooth, minty, sweet, and perfectly chocolaty from the white chocolate. It was the perfect addition to my gift baskets for the neighbors and was a great treat to have around the house.

I love that I got to cross one more thing off of my 30 While 30 list with making this candy. I highly suggest using a candy thermometer when making this, it will make it much easier and take the guess-work out of it. I use candy thermometer all the time.
