Dark Chocolate Peppermint Fudge Recipe

Today I want to share this dark chocolate peppermint fudge recipe with you. I was supposed to post it days ago but life got in the way. I’ve made this fudge three times already & everyone loved it. The most recurring comment was that it was so creamy & smooth. They loved not only the texture but the flavor as well. I decided that I needed to share the recipe with you even if I’m late sharing it. If you love dark chocolate & peppermint then you’ll love this fudge.

The only downside is that it’s seasonal. It’s made with Nestle’s Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels which are limited edition. This is why I hesitated sharing the recipe but it’s too good not to share.


You’ll love how simple & quick this recipe is.

    Thank you for posting this recipe!!!

    Quick question: Is the extract necessary or can I omit this ingredient? Could I substitute it for peppermint oil (Whole Foods “Food Grade”), or will it alter the texture of the fudge?
