Chocolate Amaretto Fudge

Chocolate Amaretto Fudge- this boozy fudge has a wonderful almond flavor and a super creamy texture.

Adding 2 tablespoons of Amaretto to this super simple chocolate fudge not only adds flavor, but gives it a super creamy texture. I find that Amaretto on its own doesn’t give the fudge quite enough almond flavor, so I like to add just a 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract. A little almond extract goes a long way.

I love anything almond flavored and I especially love Amaretto. I sometimes allow myself a little splash in my coffee as a special treat. This Amaretto Cheesecake is another great dessert using Amaretto.

A few toasted sliced almonds on top add a nice crunch and give you a hint that the fudge is almond flavored. Fudge is my absolute favorite sweet treat associated with Christmas. Probably because fudge typically involves chocolate. Fudgy chocolate is my favorite.

This fudge is super easy to make and no candy thermometer is needed. It only has 5 ingredients (not counting the almonds on top).

Chocolate Amaretto Fudge Recipe Tips:

Sometimes fudge is a little too soft at room temperature. In my experience, this one stays plenty firm at room temperature, but if it doesn’t store it in the refrigerator.
