Updated March 20, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 oz or 2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 lbs (about 8 cups) confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup whiskey Jack Daniel's™ whiskey

Steps

  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    Line a 13x9x 2-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Spray lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 3
    Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 70 percent power for 90 seconds. Stir and continue to microwave at 30-second intervals until fully melted.
  • 4
    While chocolate is in microwave, pour confectioner’s sugar in a large bowl. Pour a cup of Jack Daniel’s™ whiskey over sugar and whisk mixture well.
  • 5
    When chocolate is melted, scrape chocolate over sugar and whiskey mixture. Working quickly, stir really, really well until all ingredients are blended.
  • 6
    Then pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spread the mixture evenly.
  • 7
    Let the fudge set just until firm, about 30 minutes. Lift fudge out of dish and cut into squares. Let fudge further set at room temperature for 60 minutes.

  • To help spread the mixture, grease an offset spatula with vegetable shortening or butter.
  • You can find confectioner’s sugar at the supermarket in either one large bag or two smaller boxes.

  • There are those that truly appreciate the fine thing that is whiskey. Those that appreciate the history, the tradition, the craftsmanship that goes into each sip. I am not one of them. I want to be one of them. I truly appreciate a beautifully-made, complicated liquor. And whiskey is the drink of authors and presidents and actors and artists. But whiskey is one I don’t touch because of that time in college. Seriously. That’s why. To re-introduce myself to an entire world (I think it’s fair to say that whiskey is an entire world), this Copycat Jack Daniel’s™ fudge does the trick. It is the true taste and flavor of whiskey delivered by sweet, chocolate fudge—also known as the perfect combination of drink and dessert. I would be remiss if I didn’t warn you that this fudge is strong. It’s not so much fudge with a hint of whiskey, but a shot of whiskey with a hint of fudge! And without heat, the alcohol is not burned off. Ergo, please make sure anyone who tries a bite knows what is in it. And while I did consider how well my kids might sleep from this treat, I kept this fudge well outside their reach. Not my reach, though.
