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.

So good and so easy!! I made this tonight for my husband's boss who is a peppermint fanatic. I can't stand peppermint anything and even I thought this was pretty incredible!! I followed the directions, except I used real butter instead of margarine and I added a few drops of LorAnn's peppermint oil to the sugar/milk/butter mixture while cooking. I pulverized the candy canes in my food processor and swirled a little red food coloring into the mixture before pouring into the pan. Came out so pretty and so yummy!! Thanks for posting, m hubby's boss is going to love this!

I made a mistake and added peppermint extract instead of food coloring. The two bottles looked alike and I was using the extract for another recipe but it didn't hurt it at all. It was creamy and really good. I used green food coloring to match the minty flavor and cause I didn't have any red. Thanks for a nice holiday candy. Perfect for the Candy tray.

Loved it. I also swirled the green and red food coloring on the top, and it looked very nice. I took it to work for our holiday brunch and got lots of compliments. I only got one piece! I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting!

I made this to put in a fudge assortment for my co-workers and it is both delicious and so pretty! Instead of using hard peppermint candy I used Bob's soft mint candy which was really easy to crush. Also took several other reviewers suggetion of swirling the food coloring in it instead of mixing it in. The only problem I had was that it was very crumbly when I cut it. Don't know why, but if anyone knows why that happened, please zmail me. Despite being crumbly it was still delicious --- I'm eating some now --- at 10:00 in the morning ---what can I say? It's so good!! It's a given that I WILL be making this again!

How have I NOT rated this bad boy? This is going on my third year of making this. It is definitely my favorite Christmas Confection. Really easy to make and tastes fantastic! Try to keep it in the fridge as long as possible before serving - at room temp it just isn't as good and just becomes way too rich. Swirl in the food coloring on the top like a previous poster suggested. Pretty AND good! Perfection.

a very strong peppermint fudge. I would cut back some on the peppermint next time as it was just too strong. I would try it again as it was good and made a nice addition to xmas cookie trays.

AMAZING! While I love chocolate as much as the next girl, this fudge is now my favorite! I took Mariiam's advice and swirled the food coloring through the fudge - it looked beautiful! I received so many complements - definitely making again next year! Thanks for the great recipe!
