'Tis the season for delicious food!
Our authors are sharing their favorite holiday recipes all month long. Today's super yummy recipe comes from Rachel Rust, the author of the best selling Escape Series and All Kinds of Bad. Her fudge, however, is all kinds of good!

Holiday Mint Fudge
3 cups of chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk, depending on your preference for dark or light chocolate)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of chopped Andes mints (or creme de menthe chips)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
a dash of salt
1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with wax paper
2. Melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat
3. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and salt
4. Spread mixture into the paper-lined pan
5. Sprinkle crushed Andes mints over the top (press down slightly to embed them into the fudge)
6. Refrigerate at least 2 hours
7. Flip fudge over onto cutting board, remove wax paper, cut fudge into small squares
**TIP** - If you're a peppermint fan, switch out Andes mints for crushed peppermint candies!


~Editor's Pick~
The Escape Series, 1

One school project. One kidnapping. One night they won’t forget.

Natalie is an honors student with perfect grades. Victor is a drug dealer with a cryptic past. When a school assignment forces them to work together, things spiral out of control.

Victor fails to complete his part of their project, so Natalie hunts him down the night before it’s due. But Victor’s kingpin boss interrupts their study date and drags Natalie down into a seedy underworld where anything can be bought and sold—including her.

Over the course of one night—while dodging bad guys and trying not to inhale—Natalie discovers shocking truths about Victor. And she’ll need to choose between preserving her perfect academic future and helping him escape his troubled past.

Except one final revelation about Victor may be too much for Natalie to survive.
