peppermint fudge
This easy fudge is adapted from a back-of-the-box recipe that some proclaim as the smoothest fudge. It’s also much easier to make than the traditional kind and takes only about 10 minutes of active cooking time — a plus if you are especially swamped during the holidays. And it keeps for a month! Recipe © 2015 by Shirley Fan and used by permission of The Harvard Common Press

Ice cream is comfort food in and of itself. My ultimate favorite flavor, without hesitation, is mint chocolate chip. It has always been and probably always will be. I love the refreshing taste of mint paired with one of my favorite things (chocolate), and together they are just the perfect combination. — Eva Bakes

Peppermint Snowball Cookies
These cookies have been a favorite of mine since childhood; I first learned to make them using the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. I’ve adapted the recipe slightly over the years but these cookies remain a holiday tradition in my home. They’re deliciously sweet and minty on their own, but I like them even better dunked into a warm mug of cocoa.Click here for more of our best cookie recipes.
