Fudge for Holidays...

How is your baking take place this holidays. We decided to bake cookies. This is fun but a lot of WORK. 

I reconsider my GIFTS next year. When you have a toddler and cookies, and candy at home not a GREAT combination because day STARTS with cookies and ENDS with cookies. 
I cannot wait to get them out of the HOUSE. The nice thing about the holidays is it is the season to celebrate. 

I enjoy every bit of it with my children. So let me start off with our favorite of the season, Chocolate peppermint fudge. This is so easy to make and taste great. You need to give this a try.
What you need to make this is 

Vegetable oil, cooking spray
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3 cups semisweet or white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy
Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with two sheets of waxed or parchment paper in a crisscross manner (one lengthwise, one crosswise) so ends overhang sides of pan; coat evenly with cooking spray.
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, cook sugar, salt, butter, cream, and marshmallows, stirring, until butter and marshmallows are almost melted, 5 to 6 minutes.
Bring mixture to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add chips and vanilla; stir until chips are melted. Pour mixture into lined pan.
Let fudge cool in the pan at room temperature, 3 hours. Use edges of paper to lift out fudge; place on cutting board, and remove paper. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, or cut fudge into bars. Sprinkle evenly with crushed candy.
