Peppermint Fudge

This fudge is absolutely amazing! I have been sneaking pieces of this every time I pass my fridge since I made it a couple of days ago.  

This recipe is really easy to make, and doesn't involve any complicated candy making (which is always a bonus!). The recipe originally said to strain the mixture to remove the remaining candy bits, but I loved the small pieces of crunch that the little candy bits produced in the fudge when I didn't strain mine.

This recipe is from, and I strongly recommend that you make this for your next Christmas party.  I absolutely love this stuff!

  1. AbstractBasic Emotion theory has had a tremendous influence on the affective sciences, including music psychology, where most researchers have assumed that music expressivity is constrained to a limited set of basic emotions. Several scholars suggested that these constrains to musical expressivity are explained by the existence of a shared acoustic code to the expression of emotions in music and speech prosody. In this article we advocate for a shift from this focus on basic emotions to a constructionist account.
