It’s been a few weeks since I posted a fudge recipe and that, in my opinion, is about a week too long. Especially during the holidays.

During the holiday season, my beverage of choice is a peppermint mocha.  If the calories didn’t count, I could easily drink three of these a day. So it’s a good thing this fudge is calorie-free!! #Iwish

I used my favorite marshmallow creme fudge recipe to avoid those pesky candy thermometers. This fudge is quick, easy, and tastes like a million bucks! Or, at least, the best peppermint mocha of your life.

I used dark chocolate for the base because I love love LOVE dark chocolate with peppermint. It’s the best. I added in some instant coffee to get that wonderful mocha flavor. You definitely need to use instant so the granules will dissolve easier and get that coffee flavor throughout the fudge.

I wanted a pretty topping and decided to go with Andes peppermint crunch baking chips. I’m addicted to these. I would say I’ve bought at least 20 bags in the last month of so. #foodbloggerproblems

Once the mocha fudge is poured into the baking dish, I sprinkled on the peppermint crunch baking chips and walked away. I let the chips get nice and soft from the heat of the fudge and then used an offset spatula to gently spread the softened chips over the top of the fudge.  Seriously, this MAKES the fudge.

Because you can never have enough peppermint I sprinkled some crushed candy canes on top and I think it lends an air of festivity to the pieces of fudge. So pretty too!

Note that I used vanilla extract NOT peppermint extract for the fudge. Peppermint extract would be TOO much of a good thing for this fudge :)
