Peppermint Fudge (not Chocolate!)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ratwoman

Generally my response to non-chocolate candy is "what's the point?" This, however, has become my favorite Christmas candy! My daughter found it in one of those Pillsbury/Betty Crocker booklets they tempt you with at the checkout stands. Prep time does not include cooling time.

Yummy, creamy, and minty! A very nice change from the common chocolate fudge. I've made this kind for two years in a row and now receive requests. To make it extra special, I have rolled the fudge into small balls then dipped in dark chocolate. Also a great way to get rid of leftover candy canes...just crush finely to maintain the smooth consistency.
