Peppermint Rocky Road Fudge

It’s the holidays so I decided to make fudge. I think I have made fudge one time in my life and it was nothing spectacular so this time my goal was to make some spectacular fudge. Since I love pecans and gooey marshmallows and since it was the holidays, I decided that I would make Peppermint Rocky Road Fudge.

Peppermint Rocky Road Fudge

The great thing about making fudge is that it is super easy to make and you can get creative with it, but what you have to remember about making fudge is that it needs to be babysat while you cook it. When you cook fudge you can’t walk away from it or it will burn and all of that amazing chocolate will be ruined.
