I don’t know about you, but I am already gearing up for the holiday season!
This is truly my favorite time of year. The hustle and bustle, the family time, the spirit just flows through the air and brings about such nostalgic feelings. With all of life’s distractions, there’s just something about the sights, scents and flavors of the holiday season that keeps me grounded.
With holiday fun and Christmas cheer, there is always room for a little fun. Whether you are entertaining, bringing a dish to a holiday party, or just creating treats for your family, these Peppermint Mocha Fudge Squares are a hit! Made with Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha flavored creamer, these fudgy treats are easy to make and delicious to eat. We may leave these out for Santa this year instead of cookies!
Peppermint Mocha Fudge Squares
recipe adapted from About.com
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha Flavored Creamer
- 2 cups Nestle Toll house semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 – 7 oz. jar marshmallow fluff
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 candy canes, crushed
For the Oreo crust:
- 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
- 4 tbsp. melted butter
Combine the crushed Oreo’s and the melted butter in a bowl, stir until moist. Press the Oreo mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9×9 pan, covering the entire surface.
In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, stick of butter, and the Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha creamer and bring to a boil. Let it roll for about 5 minutes, or until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees F. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips, followed by the marshmallow cream and vanilla extract. When thoroughly mixed, fold in half of the crushed candy cane pieces.
Pour the mixture into the 9×9 pan over the Oreo crust. Spread evenly and top with the remaining crushed candy cane pieces. Let it set in the refrigerator for a few hours, then remove and cut into squares.
We loved these, such a nice mix of chocolate and peppermint that is reminiscent of the holiday season! Coffee-Mate also carries other seasonal flavors, such as Dark Chocolate Fudge and Eggnog Latte. Keep your eyes open at the grocery store and try out your favorites!
