I realize I'm arriving a little late to the party with my holiday fudge recipe but I was bound and determined to make a fudge recipe that actually set right. I'm pleased as punch with this one! It is creamy, dreamy and so very decadent. I was also happy to find another yummy way to use these sweet peppermint pillows. I think they add the perfect finishing touch.
