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!!

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.
