Welcome to Day Five of Christmas Week. This event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We hope to inspire you to break out those holiday sprinkles and get your bake on!
Since today is the last day of Christmas Week and I want to share one of the easiest and best Christmas desserts. It’s a dessert that can stand alone as a star, can be given as a holiday gift, or is great as part of a cookie tray. This fabulous dessert is Chocolate Mint Fudge.
To me nothing says Christmas quite like the combination of mint and chocolate. This fudge has two very distinct layers. The bottom layer is a rich chocolate fudge while the top layer is a creamy mint fudge made with white chocolate. If that wasn’t enough, it’s topped off with a thin layer of chocolate.
This fudge is seriously a favorite of everyone who tries it. The combination of the chocolate and mint is just about perfect. Plus it looks great too! The dark chocolate layer paired with the bright green mint layer is so festive for the holidays.
It’s also perfect to use as a gift. Package it in a holiday box or container, put a bow on it, and give it as a gift. Going to a party this holiday? Take this fudge as a hostess gift! The hostess will thank you! The best part is that this fudge is easy to make and doesn’t take long at all. With all the baking I do over the holidays, this Chocolate Mint Fudge is a welcome change.
