Very nice! I use unsweetened Bakers chocolate. A few less calories. Add a tsp of vanilla as well. Otherwise, very nice. As Noo said, can sure change it up for variety. Thanks.

Oh so simple and oh so yummy.Not sure that I would necessarily class it as a fudge,but whats in a name? I used raisins and toasted almonds to make mine,maybe next time a few chopped glace cherries would be good too.The crunch of the nut,the juiciness of the raisin and the soft smoothness of the chocolate all marry together perfectly to create this delicious treat.DH is a happy bunny as he loves things like this!!Thanks for sharing,WickedCook.
