Three of the season's best flavors-nuts, chocolate and peppermint-combine in a delightful manner in this scrumptious fudge. The two distinct layers are eye-catching-another reason why this candy makes a great holiday gift.
I bake dozens of different kinds of Christmas cookies to give to family and friends. I came up with this recipe when I had leftover candy canes I wanted to use up. The snowballs are dipped in a white candy coating, then into crushed peppermint candy.
"My mom gave me this fantastic recipe more than 40 years ago," recalls Jan Harris of Murrieta, California. "We always called it 'celebration cake'. Carrying on her tradition, I serve it for Christmas and Valentine's Day."
