Swiss Maid Fudge - Handmade Peppermint Stick Fudge Sweetens The Holiday Season

By: Toan Dinh

It would not be outrageous to proclaim that for many of us, one of the best parts of the holiday season is the food. December first arrives with a flurry of early holiday baking brought into work and school to share. The season’s party circuit begins and the cocktails, candies and cookies abound. Dinners with extended family and friends become more elaborate affairs, pleasantly lasting well into the evening. The common, delectable theme among activities is the enjoyment of food. Certainly we all make room for a little bit more, and we always save room for dessert. This is especially the case when dessert is a luscious, handmade treat that only makes an appearance during the holiday season.

One such treat to look forward to is Swiss Maid Fudge’s handmade peppermint stick fudge. A plateful of their creamy, peppermint-tinged chocolate fudge would not last long when set before a crowd of candy lovers. They adapted their classic chocolate fudge recipe to contain a pleasantly peppery edge of peppermint, and then sprinkled the top with crunchy pieces of candy cane. As a variation on a delicious theme, their handmade peppermint stick fudge is also available in a white chocolate version, satisfying the cravings of those who prefer its sweet flavor.

Swiss Maid Fudge is a family owned and operated, old-fashioned candy company in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Originally specializing in chocolate fudge, the company sticks to the rules and techniques handed down through the family for generations. They still use those same techniques today, applying them to new, holiday candy inventions like handmade peppermint stick fudge, gingerbread truffles, peppermint stick bark and cranberry walnut bark.

The company proudly makes all their candy by hand from scratch. To protect the natural flavors, they add no preservatives to their products. They work to produce candy in small batches so it can be enjoyed as it is made, rather than being stored for long periods of time. Part of their commitment to doing it the way it has always been done is to use copper kettles set over an open, gas-fired, cast iron stove to boil the candy ingredients, and to mix and mold the candy on solid marble.

Since 1962, Swiss Maid Fudge has been proud of their quality candy, and can now add their handmade peppermint stick fudge to the list of customer favorites that will make a yearly appearance. Cherished in their local community, Swiss Maid Fudge candies are also available online.

Swiss Maid Fudge will be featured as a maker of handmade peppermint stick fudge on the Lifetime network. The Balancing Act, a Lifetime television network program, will be airing a segment called "Home for the Holidays: Sweet Endings" which features Swiss Maid Fudge’s handmade peppermint stick fudge. The segment originally aired on November 11 and will air again on November 19 and December 16 at 6:30am CST.
