My daughter needed a dessert dish to take with her to the Thanksgiving dinner she was invited to. What better way to grab a dessert than to come to Mom’s house and pick up something delicious? Even though this is more in line for Christmas, everyone enjoyed this rich, delicious chocolate peppermint pecan fudge.
This fudge is definitely rich, creamy, chocolaty and loaded with sweetness. Look at all this candy crunch. It’s so good! Are you ready to make your own delicious chocolate peppermint pecan fudge? Gather all your ingredients together. Put your chocolate chips, marshmallows, vanilla and butter in a large bowl. In a medium saucepan, cook sugar and evaporated milk over low flame until it boils, making sure to stir constantly. Then cook for 8 or 9 minutes stirring constantly. Once your sugar/milk mixture is ready, pour over the chocolate chip mixture and stir. Next, add your chopped pecans, stir again and pour into your prepared baking dish. Let the fudge cool for a few minutes, 5 is good, then top with the extra marshmallows and the peppermint sprinkles. Gently pat into the top of the fudge and let sit overnight until set. Then enjoy!
