Hey guys! We don’t have much time! Only one more week. Are you ready?
Still need some ideas for quick and easy goodies? Yeah, me too.
How about some super easy Peppermint Fudge:
- 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
- 4 C. confectioners’ sugar
- 1 1/4 t. vanilla extract
- 12 oz. Ghirardelli White Chocolate baking bar ( I used almond bark from the grocery)
- 1 C. crushed peppermint candy canes
If you want to form the fudge inside cookie cutters to make a cute gift, press the cutters into the fudge while still soft.
Make sure the cutter is pushed all the way through to the bottom. I added a few more crushed candies inside the cutter. After it was chilled and set, I just broke away the large pieces to reveal the cutters with the fudge inside. The outside of the cutters did need to be cleaned off, but that was quick and easy with a paper towel.
Minty snowy flakes.
Bag them up and they make a great little gift or party favor.
The parts of the fudge that was in the pan surrounding the cutters can be cut into squares. Nothing goes to waste! Yay us for being
lazy busy and smart!
At first I thought the candy canes might not give it enough minty flavor, but once it was all set up, it was plenty strong enough. They were yummy, creamy, with that delicious cream cheese undertone.
Give peppermint fudge a try and let me know how you like it. I am now going to go do that laundry. Maybe.
