This is a melt in your mouth, smooth and creamy fudge; rich with dark chocolate and almonds. I fell head over heels for the combination of almonds and chocolate this past summer when I couldn’t stop making Double Chocolate Almond Ice Cream. The almond flavor is subtle and it takes a moment to realize what makes the chocolate flavor special. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend swapping almond for vanilla next time you make your favorite chocolate cake. It is a fantastic way to change up your favorites.
This fudge received rave reviews from everyone who tried it.Thanks to Sue, for the brilliant idea of making fudge in the microwave. As it turns out, fudge doesn’t need to be time consuming or tricky at all. This is the easiest fudge I’ve ever made and it is also the creamiest, smoothest fudge I’ve ever tasted!
