CHOCOLATE ALMOND FUDGE
The hardest part about making this chocolate fudge recipe is being patient for it to set up after cooking it. But as long as you can occupy yourself, it’s totally worth the wait.
The recipe will state to cut the fudge into small squares but I say to cut them as big as you want. You’re going to love the taste and flavor of this fudge so much that I have a feeling a small square just isn’t going to be enough. Especially at Christmastime!
Speaking of Christmas, we love these Christmas Crack Saltines.

I just love showing how simple it is to make this chocolate almond fudge.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Heat chocolate chips and condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir the ingredients continuously.
Once the chocolate has melted, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the almond flavoring.
Stir in the almond slivers.
Pour/scoop the fudge into a prepared 9 x 9 square dish. (I like to use silicone because it pops right out and I don’t need to use parchment paper.)
Place the fudge into the refrigerator to harden for 2-3 hours until set.
Remove the fudge from the dish and carefully cut into small bite sized squares.
Chocolate Almond Fudge FAQS
What is the best way to store this homemade fudge once made?
You’re going to want to store it in a cooler place, like the fridge. Put it into an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
What is the best way to sliver almonds?
If you don’t already have slivered almonds in your house, just put your whole almonds in the food processor and get them chopped up into smaller bits. This won’t necessarily make them slivered, but it will get them into smaller pieces that will work well in the fudge.
You can also buy slivered almonds online or at the store as well so you don’t have to deal with the hassle.
