A long time ago, OK not that long ago but before I started to blog I discovered a wonderful fudge recipe on Pinterest. I wrote it down and gave up making the family fudge recipe. How to make the whiskey fudge became the new Christmas tradition.
I wish I knew which website I got it from so I could give credit but who knew back then I would be sharing it on a website of my own.
The 11th Day of Christmas is Sweet Treats. Now I will admit that is my downfall. I love sweets. Because of that I only make this recipe once a year.
Enjoy the sweet treats.

Jack Daniels Fudge
- 5 Cups Sugar
- 2 Sticks Unsalted Butter
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Jack Daniels Whiskey or other Whiskey
- 25 Large Marshmallows Tear in half
- 11.5 Ounce Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 Cup Chopped Nuts Optional I added 1/2 cup of walnuts and pecans each
Whisk whiskey and confectioner's sugar together. Set aside.
Put foil in the pan and use butter to grease pan. See my fudge tips.
Put sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk in a large pot with a heavy bottom. Stir steadily until the mixture boils. Continue stirring while letting it boil for 3 minutes (time it, this is important). See my fudge tips.
Remove from heat. Add marshmallow and chocolate stirring until all of it is melted and blended into the sugar mixture.
Give the whiskey mixture a quick stir and add it to the pot. Stir until fully mixed together.
Pour into the greased pan and chill. Let it mellow for a day before cutting.
