Cooking With Kids: Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge

Photo: Della Saucier
My kids love cooking during the holidays.  I try to get recipes that are easy to follow and require minimal adult supervision.  My kids like to think they are doing it all by themselves.  My Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge recipe requires very little cooking- just melting the butter and chocolate chips. The holiday secret to the fudge is peppermint marshmallows.

Peppermint marshmallows have been a great find of mine this holiday season.  They taste terrific.  I could just sit down and eat a bag - but I have resisted.   Instead, I put them in my fudge recipe.  My kids had a fun time making this tasty holiday treat.  Try it with your kids:)
