Hot summer weather getting you down? I have just the prescription for you. First, stick your head in the freezer. Better yet, try to get as much of your upper body in there as you possibly can. Aaaah, isn't that better? Once you're nice and cold and able to handle the thought of cooking again, make this Peppermint Patty Fudge. But don't worry, it's part of the hot-weather solution, not part of the problem. For one thing, it's made in the microwave, so there's no need to heat up your kitchen and stand over a hot stove waiting for the fudge to cook. But wait, there's more! It also has a hidden layer of peppermint patties in the middle, to add a burst of refreshing mint flavor in every bite. For convenience you will probably want to use store-bought peppermint patties, but if you would like to make your own, I recommend this peppermint patty recipe.
