How to make it

  • In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup crushed peppermint candies and marshmallow.
  • Cook over medium heat until smooth, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat. Butter the sides of a large heavy saucepan or dutch oven.
  • Add sugar, milk, corn syrup, butter, honey, and salt.
  • Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Using a pastry brush dipped in hot water, wash down any sugar crystals on sides of pan.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
  • Using a candy thermometer, cook syrup until it reaches soft ball stage: 234°F to 240°F. To test, drop a small amount of fudge in ice water. Syrup should easily form a ball in the water, but flatten out when held in your hand.
  • Stir in marshmallow mixture.
  • Fill your kitchen sink with 2 inches of cold water.
  • Place saucepan in the sink and cool to approximately 120°F. Using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat fudge until thickened and no longer glossy.
  • Stir in remaining 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies.
  • Pour into a buttered 8 x 11 inch baking pan.
  • Cool completely and cut into 1-inch squares.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
  • makes about 85 to 88 pieces.................enjoy !!
