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?

  3. There are two bright spots for those considering homemade renewable power systems.
    If you want to know just what the power companies, the green builders, and other
    so-called green thinkers aren’t telling you wouldn’t that be worth a few minutes of energy to
    get out. You can find out much more about how this sustainable energy system works
