I have really enjoyed hot chocolate week on Cooking With Carlee. Since I have tried to create a different fudge recipe for each special occasion this year, I decided to create a Hot Chocolate Fudge to celebrate the end of this week. To make it even more of a challenge for myself I decided to incorporate the two hot chocolate mix recipes that we created. When I was in my cabinet looking for the white chocolate chips I came across some Andes peppermint crunch baking chips and decided to include them for a Christmasy twist. They add a light peppermint flavor as if you stirred your cup of hot chocolate with a candy cane!

Stir in the marshmallows and corn syrup until completely incorporated. Pour into the prepared pan. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the next layer.
