Peppermint Fudge

I’ve always loved fudge…well, who am I kidding, I’ve always loved a lot of things.  But fudge is always considered extra special to me.  I literally turned my kitchen in to a treat factory over these past couple of weeks.  I had this grand idea to make valentines love boxes – see below


It’s been fun and dangerous all at the same time.  I’ve been delving into blogs and buying cookbooks that I probably shouldn’t have to get it all together.   And thank God I’m starting the 21 day sugar detox on Monday because I’m sure I have eaten enough treats to make up for ALL of 21 days that I won’t.  You should join me (after you make this fudge of course :).  Check out this site to sign up for emails and get all the information you need!

  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 C cacao powder

    It was good! Yes, I do recommend the book because I used many of the recipes out of it. It felt good to switch up my routine of recipes. Are you thinking of doing it yourself Cindy?
