Old Fashioned Peppermint White Chocolate Fudge Recipe

Happy Holidays! Pamela Smerker here from Fronie Mae Bakes and I am back this month with a peppermint white chocolate fudge recipe. In case you missed it, I recently shared a delicious Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate Mix recipe, which is perfect for this chilly season we are in the midst of.

The official start of winter is just days away and it has me in the mood for peppermint! I took my Grandma Fronie’s fudge instructions and put my own spin on it to create this delicious old fashioned peppermint white chocolate fudge recipe. It melts in your mouth and has that fabulous cooling sensation that you can only get with peppermint.
