Goooooood morning! I’m currently giving myself a double chin by lying flat on the couch with my pup on my lap while I try to type up this post. My friend at the gym says that all millennials are getting double chin because we constantly look down at our phones. So now I’m constantly aware of the double chin I’m giving myself, but since I live on my phone and computer, the double chin life is inevitable. I accept you double chin, I accept you.

Can we just think about something for one quick minute? It’s Christmas Eve on Sunday. WTF? Where did that come from? I’ve been traveling most of December and we aren’t doing any sort of presents this year, so the closest Christmas feels I’ve had is this peppermint fudge. And even though I’m now ready to feel in the holiday spirit (probably since it’s snowing outside), I can say that I’m incredibly happy that we aren’t doing presents this year. Finding the perfect gift for an exact day is so stressful. And I don’t do well under stress. Why can’t I just buy a present randomly when I find the perfect gift? Why does it have to be given on Christmas? I know I don’t personally want a crappy present from someone just trying to give me something since it’s a holiday. If I want something, I’m an adult and should figure out how to get it. I don’t need to ask someone to get it for me. Isn’t that what adulting is all about?

Speaking of adulting, our Christmas day is going to be spent in adult onesies. And I’m still trying to figure out what to make for brunch. The problem is, my husband and my sister-in-law could care less about food. They seriously don’t care whatsoever. I asked what kind of Christmas cookies they wanted and my sister-in-law said she’s trying to get Mexico-Fit since we go to Mexico soon. I should be getting on the Mexico-Fit train too, buuuuuuuuut Christmas cookies! We are spending our Christmas day brunching and watching Christmas movies (PS thank you for all the Xmas movie recommendations on Tuesday!) while making holiday cocktails and hot chocolate. I’ll concentrate on Mexico-Fit after Christmas Day. In the meantime, it’s fudge season!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Stress free living

    This fudge is perfect for Christmas and I have everything I need to make it! Plus it sounds easy to make and that’s always my favorite type of recipe 😉

    I totally agree with you about Christmas and gifting and adulting. It’s so stress free not having to worry about gifts!! Plus it leaves more funds for traveling, so win win. I love to surprise my hubby (who is not a fan of surprises) with little things all year so no need to wait for a specific day.

    Hope you have an absolutely amazing and stress free Christmas full of good times and good food!!

  2. this looks so damn good!! Can’t wait to make this. my mom made “regular” fudge the other day. I think I may bring this home with me and then know I have a good option to eat while visiting! Per usual – thanks gf! xo

  3. Hi Juli,
    No ghee in my cupboard but do have butter flavored coconut oil and regular coconut oil… would the butter flavor be closer to ghee?
    Thanks!

  4. Made this for a Christmas Party. It was delicious! Everyone kept telling me how delicious it was. Thank you for this awesome recipe! Will be making another batch for Christmas Day and will become a yearly tradition.

  5. This fudge will have a permanent spot on our Christmas treat tray! I used Enjoy Life dark chocolate chunks (they have lower sugar content) and completely forgot to add honey (oops!) but these were still super delicious and sweet enough for us; we did top with crushed candy canes.

    My load pan died after making an awesome meatloaf, so I poured the fudge mix into silicone flower-shaped molds… SO cute and a hit with the kids! They popped right out of the mold ????????
    Thank you Juli for creating a fabulous recipe that my family and guests loved!

    1. genius!! i’ll have to do that next year with some fudge!! so glad you guys like them and good to know they were still delicious without the honey!

  6. I made these today!! Omigod, Super easy and awesome! I used almond butter as I didn’t have cashew bitter and peppermint essential oil, only 1tsp and they worked out fantastically!
    Thanks for the inspo!
    Kathy
