I Need A Drink, Irish Cream Fudge


I belong to a book club with benefits.  Not only do I get to read interesting books, have great discussions over excellent meals but I also get gifts galore when I host.  At the last meeting I hosted a received a book called The Happy Baker: A Girl's Guide to Emotional Baking from my sister.  This book helps mate seeking females bake through the ups and downs of finding Mr. Perfect.  Thanks N.  What are you suggesting???  The book starts with a recipe that combines chocolate and Irish Cream!  What a great match!  The creaminess of Irish Cream breaks the bitterness of the chocolate and when you add roasted nuts... all I can say is WHOA BABY!!!  So whether you are nursing a broken heart (or hip - in my case) or just want to enjoy something truly decedent (with a good kick) stir up a batch of these, put in a good movie, sit back and ENJOY!

I Need a Drink, Irish Cream Fudge

3 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. white chocolate chips
1/4 c. butter
3 c. confectioners' sugar
1 c. Irish Cream Liqueur
1 1/2 c. chopped almonds or hazelnuts, roasted at 325 degrees for 5-7 minutes

Melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.  Remove from heat, stir in confectioners' sugar and Irish Cream until the mixture is smooth.  Stir in nuts.  Put mixture in a greased 8-inch square pan, spread evenly.  Refrigerate until firm.  Cut into small pieces.
