Peppermint Fudge, Looks are Deceiving

Peppermint Fudge, Looks Good, Doesn't It?

   For a couple of months,
I've been seeing posts on Pinterest, and other recipe sites raving about peppermint fudge.

   I thought I would try some today.  I used my favorite fudge recipe
 and added chipped peppermint candy. 
A big mistake.

   My usual fudge is smooth, creamy, and delicious; but, this my friends tastes like it was made with chalk, or wallpaper paste.

   My husband tried a piece, and when he took a bite, a peppermint chip stuck in his tongue, and he said his first thought was, well, I bit it, and it bit me back.

    I also tried Egg Nog Cake,  it actually tasted good, but, was a little heavy.  The next time I make it, I won't put egg nog in the batter, but, will mix it into the frosting.  I hope your holiday recipes are turning out better than mine. 
Just a little FYI, because looks are deceiving. 

Blessings. Trisha


  1. It looks really yummy. I hope the rest of the fudge was kinder to your hubby:-)

  2. Thanks, everyone who stopped by LOVED the fudge, so I told them that you made it. Only a two pieces left.
