So, the holidays are over. The shopping is over, the presents are unwrapped, the cards have arrived, and you can sort of, maybe get a parking spot at the mall that isn’t 5 miles from the door. Does this mean our making of chocolate treats is over for another 11 months?
I know, I know – new year, new you, and by all means get on the treadmill – I could certainly stand a little of that. But you still need to keep your energy up, and you only go around once, and…and…okay, the only other excuse I have is basically the name of this post, which is Peppermint Fudge.
This is one of those things that I truly did mean to post before the holidays were done, but between the chocolate pretzel bites and the mixed nut brittle and the eggnog cookies, well, you know how it goes. One moment it is November and then you turn around and somehow it is January.
So with a teeny apology for sabotaging some very well-behaved New Years resolutions, here’s some peppermint fudge. Because honestly? It’s really really good all year long.
