Is there anything that is quite so perfect as a little bite of fudge? Nothing big, just one tiny cube of chocolate-y goodness. I love bringing fudge to get-togethers or intimate gatherings, the only downside is having to melt thechocolate on a hot stove in the middle of Summer. It’s been triple digit weather over here, standing by a fire is the last thing I want to do. No worries, I’m here to show you a super Quick & Easy Fudge recipe that can easily be customized to satisfy any taste and is perfect for any party gathering!
I’m a huge fan of chocolate covered almonds so adding them to my fudge was a no brainer. Target exclusively carries the Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds which are great little snacks by themselves but even better when paired with Quick & Easy Fudge! You can use the Cartwheel app to save 30% on Brookside chocolate at Target through Aug 1st.
I’ve got to tell you that this is actually my sister’s raw fudge recipe that everyone devours when she makes it so when I started brainstorming about this post, my thoughts immediately turned to her fudge. It’s seriously so delicious that no one even has the slightest inkling that it’s raw and sweetened with dates. Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds were the perfect final touch!
I’m not exaggerating when I say this recipe is “quick & easy!” Pretty much all you have to do is add all the ingredients to a food processor, blend together, press into a pan, and let harden in a fridge until serving to your guests. Easy, right? You can either add the covered almonds in the food processor or just press a whole one into each square of fudge. Both will work, it’s pretty much just a matter of preference. I love how elegant the single piece looks on top!
Once your fudge has had time to harden in the fridge, just cut into small cubes and serve to your guests. They’re going to love the timeless combination of chocolate and almonds!
