This is my second year making this recipe and I will probably make it every year from now on. Everyone who's tasted it raves about it, even my 3 kids who don't care all that much for peppermint. A few trial and error tips: Last year I added the red food coloring and the fudge came out pink.. I wasn't really pleased with that. This year I left out the food coloring altogether and I think it's much prettier this way. Also, there is no need for the added fat of "greasing" the foil. Use Glad's Press and Seal Wrap (make sure you refrigerate for the full 2 hours!) and it peels right off with no sticking. Also, make sure you use candy canes that are easy to crush. If the chunks are too big the fudge won't cut easily. Last year I used the individually wrapped, round peppermints but I thought it was better this year using regular, cheapo candy canes. I put a tin of this in all of my Christmas packages this year, it's a nice change from the traditional chocolate with nuts fudge that everyone else makes. Now somebody please stop me before I go eat it all!
