Rocky Road Cookies and Cream Peppermint Fudge

2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate morsels or white chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate cookies of choice I used oreo's just the cookie top part  chopped into small pieces
1 can (14 oz.)Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint
3 cups miniature marshmallows
optional 1/2 cup chopped pistachio or macadamia nuts
Garnish:
12 small peppermint puffs crushed  (these are easier to chew and not crunchy, soft ones so much easier on the teeth) or use 4 peppermint candy canes
LINE 13 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.
MICROWAVE morsels and sweetened condensed milk in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in pepperment extract. Fold in marshmallows, nuts and cookie pieces.PRESS mixture into prepared baking pan.

 Sprinkle with crushed peppermint puffs or candy canes. ( I placed them in a plastic bag and hit them with a rolling pin until fine chunks.)Refrigerate until ready to serve. Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into pieces.Makes 48 pieces

Lovely components to this fudge. I am sitting here thinking of how great it would be if I was your official taste tester. I would be getting a wondrous variety of all types of food and I would be content in my diet. Great post Claudia and enjoy the day.

I should not look at your blog first thing in the early a.m. Now, I want this for breakfast! "Rocky-road" was my favorite ice-cream flavor when I was growing up!

I wish you the Merriest Christmas and time to be with your family. Have a joyful weekend, Claudia!

It's so colorful--I love it! A nice change from plain brown, bland-looking fudge.
