Melissa's Drunken and Smoked Up Fudge

Drunken & Smoked Up Fudge

Sounds like this fudge has a bit of a substance abuse problem! All I can say is after one taste of this decadent fudge, you may walk away with an addiction of your own...IF you can still walk!

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 ounces Ghiradelli Chocolate
1 cup chopped Smoked Almonds
1 1/2 tablespoons Chambord Liquor
1 1/2 teaspoons Creme Fraiche
1/2 teaspoon almond extract


Butter an 8-inch square baking pan and line with plastic wrap. Combine 4 tablespoons butter, sugar, cream, and salt in a saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue boiling, stirring frequently, to a temperature of 230 degrees F. This will take about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate with a whisk until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Add 1 cup chopped almonds and the liqueur and flavorings; stir to blend. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours. Remove the top layer of plastic wrap and flip the pan upside down on a cutting board or platter. Let stand at room temperature for a few minutes then cut into small pieces.
