Easy Peppermint Fudge: Not Rocket Science

I couldn't believe this post from Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman...and had to try it.
Really, no rocket science or culinary skills or genius involved with this one! I did modify the recipe a smidge to include heavy whipping cream and Karo syrup for that glistening appearance. And I skipped the double-boiler for the microwave.

Few ingredients. Decadent outcome. Perfect college recipe for the holidays and great one to take home for the family! Make some today and share with a friend with one of the gift certificates I have created for you to use this months!! It doesn't take a genius to make a difference either!
