Peppermint (Butter) Fudge Cups

“This is a recipe I found in Paula Deen's Holiday Collector's Magazine. I wanted to share it here at Zaar. It's a simple and easy recipe. I made them for my boys back in North Carolina for their Christmas holiday goody treats I send them every year. I also want to mention that I made mine on top of the stove in a large pot and than transferred it to my electric mixer mixing bowl than added the confectioner sugar 1 cup at a time. I also used the Andes Peppermint baking bits in place of the peppermint candy and 2% milk. NOTE: You need miniature muffin cups and some cooking spray”
20 mini muffin cups
