Thanksgiving may be over, but there's another deliciously jolly holiday on the way and it's time to start getting ready. In case you didn't get the hint, we're talking about Christmas, of course! If there's one thing we love about this holiday (besides the gifts and family time) it's all the yummy desserts.

But we have to say, out of all the scrumptious sweet treat recipes we've seen this year, one in particular takes the cake. Two words: Peppermint. Fudge. That's right -- you can actually combine two of the most holiday-esque treats in this world to make one, super fantastic dessert miracle!
