There’s just something magical about bourbon and chocolate. With a crunch of toasted pecans, this is one perfect bite!
Toasting pecans really does make a difference. It brings the flavor to the forefront and gives them a nice, toasty finish. Don’t skip this step!
I used my Brother’s Bond bourbon in this recipe and it was absolutely fantastic! If you haven’t read about Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley’s bourbon brand yet and love bourbon, click here.
This fudge is so easy to make. All you have to do is melt sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a double boiler (for a DIY double boiler, set a bowl over a pot of simmering water) or even the microwave. Then stir in bourbon, pecans, and refrigerate until set. So easy! It literally takes five minutes to make and this fudge lasts for weeks, making it perfect for holiday baking.
