Grinchy Peppermint Fudge

Friends, Christmas is what I live for. With a name like Holly, it’s practically my life’s mission to spread holiday cheer. When it gets reasonably close enough to Christmas (read the stroke of midnight on November 1st), I’m ready to deck the halls and falala. Regular ol’ peppermint fudge just will not do, no it will not. The Grinch has a soft spot in my heart, I just love the character and I fondly remember watching the classic cartoon version during the summer months at my grandmother’s house. Of course it would be watched all over again in December when it was more appropriate, ha! A few years back, I created these Grinch Cookies that were featured on People.com and every year I dream up a new Grinch themed recipe, so let it be clear that the Grinch is welcome in these parts and we’ll start by whipping up some Grinchy Peppermint Fudge in his honor!

I start by creaming together some cream cheese and powdered sugar in my stand mixer and set it aside.

In a saucepan, I add some water and then place a glass bowl on top of it. Over medium heat, I melt some white chocolate until it’s completely melted through.

Then I add in some peppermint oil.

And a whole bottle of green food coloring.

Once the chocolate has melted, I immediately add it to the cream cheese mixture and beat it all together until well combined.

I transfer it to a lined baking dish and sprinkle some crushed peppermint sticks over the top.

I chill the fudge in the fridge for about four hours before cutting it into fun Grinchy-green squares for our viewing tradition.

Some of my favorite holiday memories revolve around watching a special movie or show with my family and I love that I get to experience it all over again with my own children. Thanks to Netflix, we get to enjoy classics like The Grinch and Frosty the Snowman along with new favorites like Trolls Holiday. As a family, we enjoy having a Grinchy movie night together where we enjoy our themed snacks like this Grinchy Peppermint Fudge as we watch our furry green friend’s heart grow three sizes. Friends, grab your remote, turn on Netflix, get those twinkle lights on, turn the house lights off, wear your coziest jammies, grab a knitted blanket, and view your family favorites with Netflix this holiday season.

    • This year, he would be anticipating his eleventh birthday. I would be preparing to read him Harry Potter & the Scorcerer’s Stone that I would gift him on his special day because as far as I’m concerned, that’s when you read the first book. In your eleventh year. When you get your letter. We’d sort him into a House. Hufflepuff like mom, hopefully, but when he’s sorted into Gryffindor I’d tell him I always knew. And we’d enjoy Chocolate Frogs together as we read. #grief #griefmom #babyloss #babylossawareness #michigan #upnorth #northernmichigan #infantloss #infantlossawareness
