Peppermint Fudge was the easiest to make. My 5 year old did most of it by herself! It turned out so cute and festive looking.
1 (12 ounce) package of white chocolate chips or high quality white chocolate bar
1 (16 ounce) container vanilla frosting (next time I will make my own Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and use 2 cups. I prefer the flavor of homemade frosting to the store bought tubs.)
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
8 drops red food coloring
2 Tablespoons crushed peppermint candies (I used 1 candy cane)
Line an 8X8 inch pan with waxed paper or foil and grease. Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval. Stir the frosting into the white chocolate chips. Stir in peppermint extract. Spread into prepared pan evenly. Drop 8 drops of food coloring evenly spaced on top of the fudge. Using a knife swirl the food coloring. Sprinkle top of fudge with crushed peppermint candies and press down slightly. Cool for about an hour in the fridge. Once firm, turn fudge onto a cutting board and cut into small squares.
