I like this blog, girlichef. I've tried making several of her recipes, everything from homemade chorizo (which was excellent) to dessert. This latest dessert is wonderful: peppermint fudge. The link is here: http://www.girlichef.com/2012/12/PeppermintFudge.html You must go make some. It is incredible! I made a test batch yesterday, to see if I thought it should go into the family rotation this year. I have to get teacher gifts out early next week, and so I thought if this was ok, I'd add some to the teacher gifts. It's way more than ok. It's really fabulous. I guess those of you that have Christmas with me don't have to make some, because I'm making another batch to bring for Christmas, as soon as I buy more white chocolate! I was careful to only eat a little bit, because it's basically all sugar and you know I can't just eat sugar anymore, but I managed to enjoy some and not raise my blood sugar, so that was a double bonus. I've always enjoyed just melting white chocolate and mixing in candy cane bits, but this is a bit more special and will look really nice in a gift basket or cookie tray.
