Peppermint Crunch Fudge

Are you a fudge lover? Peppermint lover? How about a combo for another Christmas cookie treat? I made this freezer fudge this summer and fell in love with an easy simple, not-too-much goodness, treat that you could make last minute or have for days. This one has a Christmas peppermint twist with some added candy cane goodness. Fudge isn't really photogenic if you ask me, or maybe were all just too excited to consume it so it doesn't last long enough to snap a photo, haha! 
But there is a lot more there on these ones than what a picture can show. Maybe if it was scratch and sniff you would get the real idea here :) Oh I will stop! Just do yourself a favor and make some and share some with all the Christmas cookie goodies this year!
Peppermint Crunch Freezer Fudge Recipe
{gluten, grain, dairy, egg, soy, nut, and seed-free, also vegan and paleo}

1 - 1 1/2 cup of date paste puree
1/2 cup of cacao or cocoa powder
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand)
1/3 cup of organic virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/2 ts. of quality sea salt
1 heaping teaspoon of all natural peppermint oil flavoring

optional add in: add in 1/2-1 cup of rice cereal to add some texture, or else you can keep that out and only add the crushed candy canes to the fudge mix and topping...

(2)- all natural peppermint candy canes crushed into extra small pieces for twirling and topping.

Put all of the above ingredients, (except peppermint and optional cereal) in a small saucepan and melt and whisk together. Then lastly add in the peppermint oil flavoring and taste to make sure you don't want more. Then if you want to add in 1/2-1 cup of rice crunch cereal and quickly pour into a parchment covered 9x9 pan or a 8x10 pan and spread smooth. Lastly mix or top the crushes candy canes before you put in the freezer to get hard. Put in the freezer for 2 hours and then cut into 2x2 squares. Keep in the fridge or freezer to stay fresh longer. 

Hope you are finishing all the run-around and busy-ness and starting to settle in and gather with those you love and are able to show your true self. That hope, joy, peace and LOVE abound. Much love to you all and ENJOY!
