Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge

This Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge is a delicious festive dessert which is easy to make!

But wait. WHAT? Is it just one week until Christmas? I am speechless, my friends. I have not done so many things. I have not baked so many cookies. I have not tried all Christmas flavors yet.

Talking about the flavors, I have already posted the ideas combined the gingerbread and eggnog flavors. Now it’s the time for some peppermint deliciousness. Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge makes the perfect seasonal treat.

Besides all these Christmas treats, there’s another thing which is associated with December. Christmas songs!

Are you sick and tired of listening to them?

I’m not. However, I was done listening to the local Christmas FM station after just a week as they play many of the songs I don’t like. So, I’ve been listening to my player instead.

Indeed, I have a very limited list of songs I like. There might be 12-15 songs maximum. I don’t mind listening to the different versions of the same song, though.

Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge

For example, I have “I’ll be Home for Christmas” performed by Michael Buble, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Bette Midler, Diana Krall, and Josh Groban (Best performance, in my book).

You can find “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” in my playlist performed by Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Sam Smith, and Barbra Streisand (Best version).

The most popular seems to be “The Christmas Song” (Chestnuts Roasting…) performed by 8 different singers (Most of them mentioned above), with the Celine Dion’s version being the best.

And please don’t hate me, but I do prefer Michael Buble’s version of “All I Want For Christmas is You” over the Mariah Carey’s one.

Also, I don’t mind making fudge over and over again (Possibly, listening to Christmas music). I already shared Gingerbread Fudge and Eggnog Fudge. Isn’t it the time for some boozy version? Here we go! I’ve got this Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge. It’s super rich, delicious, and with a pronounced peppermint and coffee liquor flavors. Perfect for your Christmas table.

So I’m hoping you’re enjoying some lovely Christmas carols, and I hope you’ll try this Chocolate Kahlua Peppermint Fudge. Who knows, maybe it’ll be another Christmas classic one day!

What’s your favorite Christmas song/performance?

  1. I will never love Mariah Carrey’s version of that song – and it’s mostly due to the fact that I can NEVER get it out of head after hearing it! Michael Buble is so much softer on the ears!! You are rocking the fudge – this is the best combo yet!! I bet the kahlua just goes SO well with the peppermint. I can’t wait to see what your next flavour is!

  2. I seriously can NOT believe Christmas is a few days away and a new year is right behind it. Crazy how time flies… and it seems the older we get, the faster time goes. So sad. BUT, what isn’t sad?! THIS FUDGE!!!! BEN! I mean, you had me a kahlua! And then peppermint!!! SO GOOD! You know my stupid cocoa allergy prevents me from devouring this, so do me a favor, and eat MASS quantities of this beautiful fudge FOR ME!!! Cheers, buddy! I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday!

  3. I love this post, Ben! I agree with you that I can stick to my favorite line-up of carols, and just listen to them over and over again. I second Kelsie’s comment about Straight No Chaser, but I have to say that Josh Groban has moved into the top spot for all things Christmas in my book. It used to be Mariah (and she’s still up there pretty high), but Josh has stolen the top spot! As far as Christmas desserts go, I’m pretty sure this fudge just stole the top spot. I mean it’s chocolate, peppermint and Kahlua. Sounds pretty much like perfection to me! This fudge looks amazing, too! Send me the leftovers? I promise to keep them safe!

  4. I love the Straight No Chaser Christmas albums and pretty much any version of O Holy Night. Like you, I don’t care for Christmas music on the radio because they play SO MANY weird songs. Christmas in the Northwest, if you’ve never heard it before, is ridiculously bad but radio stations in Oregon love to play it. I think this fudge will be on my baking agenda today. It sounds soooo good and so festive. Hope you’re having a great week, my friend!

  5. I don’t hate you Ben, but I’m afriad I do prefer Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” rather than the Michael Buble version. (Sorry!).

    But now that we’ve got that little disagreement over, I can confirm I have no disagreement with you over posting lots of fudge recipes. Especially one’s with booze in them!

    Ps. Isn’t it funny how we both posted recipes with booze in today!! Ha ha ha! :-)
