Are you familiar with the fabulous Ben & Jerry's Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz!® ice cream flavor?  It's extra-coffee flavored ice cream with espresso fudge chunks.  Uh, yeh.  Can you see how it gets it's name?

Well, I didn't really mean to, ... but I think I kinda created a similar type caffeine-wired-up sweet treat with this Chocolate Kahlua Fudge ~ chocolate fudge loaded with Kahlua, laced with instant coffee granules, and topped with chopped dark chocolate covered espresso beans.  Oh my!  And it's so good.

Salted Dark Chocolate Bourbon Fudge

Salted.  Dark Chocolate.  Bourbon.  Fudge.  ~ there's not a single one of those words I don't like.  And when you put them all together in one sweet bite? ~ It's a little bite of chocolate-bourbon heaven.


This Salted Dark Chocolate Bourbon Fudge is one of those creations where I could just let the name and photos speak for themselves and not write a single word.  Because, truly, there are no words for how absolutely delicious this fudge is!

If you're a bourbon fan ... which I am ... Salted Dark Chocolate Bourbon fudge is a little bite of bourbon heaven.

I made three 'spirited' fudges this week and brought some of each to my Mom to taste test ...
