Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

Another fudge I made for Thanksgiving. The recipe said to use 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract, but I used about 1 teaspoon, and the mint was perfect. So, I changed the recipe (pasted below) to our liking. Also, I only had Mint extract, so I used that instead of Peppermint.

Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

  • 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbs. margarine
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • ¼ cup crushed hard peppermint candy (optional)

  • Line a 8-inch square baking pan with foil.
  • In a medium saucepan combine sugar, milk, margarine, and salt. Bring to a full boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes (until soft ball stage). Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows, chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. Stir vigorously for 1 minute or until marshmallows are melted. Pour into prepared baking pan; cool for 1 minute. Top with the crushed peppermint candy, pressing in slightly. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ CountryGirlWebDesign.com) who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
