Thought I would shape a fudge recipe that is super easy to make and the best part, has Jack in it.  Have only used black label for it, but have been tempted to put barrel proof in it instead to kick it up a little.  Enjoy:

 

Jack Daniels Pecan Fudge

20  ounces dark chocolate chips
1  14-ounce can sweetened, condensed milk
¼  cup Jack Daniels (Black Label)
2  teaspoons vanilla
½  teaspoon salt
2  cups pecans, chopped.

 

Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with waxed paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on each side.
In a large, microwaveable bowl, add the chocolate chips.  Heat on high for 90 seconds.
Remove and stir well.  Repeat for another 90 seconds and stir until fully melted.  Add
Sweetened condensed milk, Jack, vanilla and salt.  Stir until smooth.  Add nuts and
stir until fully incorporated, then pour into prepared pan.  Refrigerate 1 hour, or until
firm (we found 2 to 3 hours).  Using waxed paper, lift fudge out of pan and turn onto a
cutting board.  Remove waxed paper and cut into 8 slices by 8 slices to make 64
one-inch squares.  Wrap fudge in waxed paper and store in airtight container in refrigerator
for up to one week.

Tomek,  The vanilla is a liquid.  It is vanilla extract.  Hope this helps.

Sounds good Tom & Gartha.

They are a little bit like whiskey balls, except square.

I made them yesterday, but with ground almonds instead pecans. Love it! Great recipe Tom :)

 

Unfortunately I did not have so much patience to wrap each fudge in waxed paper ;D

Made 2 batches for Christmas with the family.  1 batch using regular black label and the other using barrel proof.  You could tell the difference!!!  Good stuff!

WIll have to try this - thanks Tom! 

 

Maggie and I almost always make our Tipsy Balls for Christmas - and we are making a batch later this week as we still have ingredients for one more batch.

 

The recipe is found at my web site (text document link) 

 

http://iammoon.com/r...tipsy_balls.txt

 

Jack Daniels Tipsy Balls


1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels (or any semisweet chocolate..)
3 tbsp corn syrup     
1/2 cup Jack Daniels Black Label
2 1/4 cup crushed vanilla wafer crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup powdered sugar (Powdered sugar is just for rolling balls in)

Melt chocolate at 50% in microwave.
Add corn syrup to melted chocolate.
Mix in Jack Daniels.

Combine crushed wafers and pecans in separate bowl.

Add dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture. Mix well.

Chill 30 mins.

Roll into 1" balls. Roll balls in the powdered sugar until coated.

Enjoy.

 

best
