I’m slowly trying to get back into baking.  After the holidays this year I just didn’t have any interest in baking or sweets.   I’ve been trying to watch my weight and it’s hard to do that when I have cakes, cookies, and fudge laying around the house.   I also have been so busy working on my Spring Sweets Week that I haven’t had a whole lot of time for baking.

In an effort to get a jump start on the late winter/early spring holidays I decided to make some fudge for Valentine’s Day and for St. Patrick’s Day.   I chose both of those because I knew I had sprinkles that would work for both of those holidays.  Originally I was going to make one batter and then use different sprinkles for each but then I had a change of opinion.

It's so easy and fun to make Peppermint Bownie Batter Fudge for St. Patrick's Day!

After looking in my pantry I realized I had a lot of cake mixes and brownie mixes and I had no clue when I was going to use them all because I usually make both from scratch.  I decided to use them in my fudge.  I made Cake Batter Fudge for Valentine’s Day and this delicious Peppermint Brown Batter Fudge for St. Patrick’s Day.

I started with fudge because it’s so easy to make and it doesn’t take much effort.  Since I really wasn’t up for a big bake this was the perfect way to ease back in to sweets.  In fact, this recipe has just five ingredients and it took about 10 minutes to make so I was able to make it, wash the dishes, and have plenty of time to work on my blog while J took his afternoon nap.

To make the fudge I simply heated together brownie mix, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips.  Once it was melted I added in peppermint extract and Sprinkle Pop American Hero Sprinkle Mix.  Now I realize that this sprinkle mix has camouflage colors and gold stars but the greens, black, and sparkling gold stars were perfect for St. Patrick’s Day as well.

The fudge turned out really good.   It was creamy, chocolatey, and had a nice finish of peppermint.  The sprinkles both in the fudge and on top really stood out and reminded me of St. Patrick’s Day.   This is a great dessert that the kids could help make and decorate as well.
