Mint Chocolate Fudge

Happy Valentine's Day!

Remember in school when you would decorate a shoe box and then all your classmates would come drop a special valentine in your box? And then you'd get all excited to see what they wrote on your card? Oh sweet memories. Those were the days.

I so wish we could do fun things like that as adults. But for some reason there isn't really arts and crafts time at work. Lame.

I decided to make my Valentine some mint fudge. Jake is a fan of mint chocolate, especially Andes Mints so I knew this would make him smile. I just swapped the chip and flavoring from my Grandma's Fudge and presto! Mint Chocolate Fudge!
