This is a guest post from Sammi of Grounded & Surrounded

When it comes to Christmas I dream about peppermint and chocolate. When I discovered this recipe my heart was overjoyed. Best yet, this festive dessert is so easy, your friends and family won’t believe you didn’t spend the entire day in the kitchen. This simple fudge recipe requires less than an hour of your time. There is no boiling, no candy thermometers, and no fuss.

There are two layers of fudge consisting of dark chocolate and white chocolate chips with crushed candy canes in between. It will definitely feel like the holidays when you are preparing to serve these bite-size squares!

This recipe also freezes very well for when you need a little holiday spirit once Christmas is over. Simply wrap the entire “slab” of fudge or individual pieces in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. The fudge will keep for up to 3 months. Happy Holidays!
