Forget Me Not Fudge - Foodie Friday
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a really simple recipe and because candy is such an integral part of our Valentine's Day celebrations, I thought this would be the perfect time for this delicious spiked fudge to make its debut. The recipe uses just six ingredients and consistently produces a rich, smooth fudge that's never grainy. The recipe was developed by Maker's Mark Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. If you prefer, you can substitute one teaspoon of vanilla extract for the small amount of bourbon used in the recipe. If you're looking for a chocolate confection to make for someone special, look no further. Once you've assembled the ingredients, you'll need about 10 minutes to make the fudge. It's necessary to keep it in a cool spot for 6 to 8 hours to set before cutting. This recipe makes a lot of fudge, so round up friends to share it with or cut the recipe in half. Here's how the fudge is made.
