Peppermint Fudge Pie & Giveaway


I know that I didn't  the giveaway posted last week. 
I forgot to take the picture before we left town. 
It was a little hectic!
Here is what I'm going to do. On Wednesday December 1, I will announce giveaway winners. 
I have two sets of holiday cards made by
Cyndy at Life Is A Great Adventure
She is super creative and a great friend to boot.

Aren't they super cute?

How easy is that?
Tomorrow is my last pie recipe post and it is not traditional in any way what so ever. It is a family tradition that is over 70 years old. I'm very excited about it and hope you will be too!

The following pie is a mixture of chocolate, marshmallow, and peppermint - all the good things in a cup of hot chocolate!
