The Thermomix is absolutely brilliant for so many things… one of which is making the yummiest fudge. Until I owned my Thermomix I would always struggle to get the texture right with my fudge. Now it’s so easy – everything just gets popped in and off you go! Making fudge in the Thermomix is virtually foolproof.
I’ve been making a classic chocolate fudge recipe for ages now and it’s always a family favourite. But this time I decided to mix things up a little and make it into a decadently rich Peppermint Crisp Chocolate Fudge, because let’s face it, nothing beats that amazing chocolate mint flavour combination.
And who on earth can resist a little bite of Peppermint Crisp… certainly not me (PS. I recommend buying an extra Peppermint Crisp bar because there’s no way you’ll be able to resist nibbling on one while you make this fudge). I love making up batches of fudge to give to friends and family as a yummy little gift. It really is the perfect little treat!
