This peppermint cookie fudge packs a triple punch sensation with a delicious flavor, good looks and a texture combination of creamy and crunchy that makes it hard to stop at one piece.
Which is why you should probably make up a double batch.....or maybe 3. Y'know y'all will thank me for this advice once you are wrapping up pieces for gifts. I ended up with none left over for myself and I had to whip up another batch - true story :)
Anyhoo I made up batches of this fudge for Christmas teacher gifts and popped the pieces into little boxes wrapped with decorative Christmas Paper. They would also look great wrapped in simple clear cello wrap tied with ribbons.
But remember however you wrap them it's the thought that counts, and anyone that is lucky enough to receive this peppermint cookie fudge as a gift will know how much thought and will power went into handing these delicious treats over in one piece.
