    Denibates's Note:

    This is a creamy old-fashioned fudge. Please don't skimp on the bourbon...use a fine one, such as Four Roses or Woodford Reserve. Maker's Mark is also acceptable. Always remember what every Kentuckian knows: Whiskey is no substitute for bourbon!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a heavy saucepan, mix sugar and cocoa until blended.
    2. 2
      Add milk and stir until blended.
    3. 3
      Add heat and slowly bring mixture to a boil. Allow mixture to boil up and dissolve sugar crystals on the sides of the pan.
    4. 4
      Boil until candy reaches the soft ball stage (230-240 degrees), stirring constantly.
    5. 5
      To test for "soft ball stage" drop a little of the candy mixture in clean, ice cold water. If you can roll it around with your finger and it holds together, it's ready.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat, and stir in bourbon.
    7. 7
      "Beat" mixture with a spoon, stirring briskly until the candy starts to crust around the sides of the saucepan and the mixture thickens considerably.
    8. 8
      Pour into a buttered 9x13 glass dish. Allow to cool slightly and cut into squares.
    9. 9
      Press a whole pecan into the top of each square.

      Decadent and delicious fudge! The bourbon flavor is noticeable but not overpowering. I liked this just as well without the pecans and next time will probably omit them. Thanks for sharing the recipe for this tasty treat! Made for Fall PAC 2012
