I decided to start trying some recipes ahead of time instead of waiting till Christmas. I also needed a dessert and this one is super easy to whip up.
So normally I wouldn’t fuss that you can’t taste the liquor in something, but holy mother of God, this one you for sure wanna cut back a little or else cut the fudge in tiny pieces. Everyone that tried this said it was like taking a shot! After 2 bites I started to feel it, so I’m glad I tested this recipe out now!!
Jack Daniel’s Maple Fudge
(Adapted from Just a Smidgen)
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
1 tsp maple extract
1 lb powdered sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Measure out all ingredients in advance as this fudge sets up fast.
Heat the chocolate chips in a microwave safe container in short 20 second “bursts” until chocolate stirs and is smoothly melted. Alternately, use a pot/bowl placed over a simmering pot of water.
Meanwhile, mix together the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey and the maple extract in a measuring cup.
Once chocolate has melted, quickly stir in the powdered sugar, followed by the whiskey/maple extract liquid. Then stir in the walnuts.
Quickly spoon into 9”x9” baking pan.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then cut into squares.
Allow to cool completely.
