Soft, chocolate almond fudge dipped in white chocolate. Need I say more?
I was recently asked by Solo Foods to be a part of a recipe competition. They sent a few cans of pastry filling and a can of almond paste and asked me to create a recipe using at least one of these items.
Of course, my mind always goes to fudge. I know, so predictable.
I realized that I don’t have very many chocolate varieties on my website here, so many other flavors have made appearances, but not chocolate. I had been wanting to do chocolate almond, so why not try incorporating the almond paste?
Can I just say, this was a great move. It gave the fudge a deep almond flavor (more than just extract could do) while enhancing the creamy texture. Two thumbs up! AND, this recipe makes 81 bites of fudge. You can make it now and freeze it for the holidays! Or give as gifts in cute little jars with tags!
If you think you’d like this recipe, would you mind heading over HERE to vote for it? I don’t like to solicit votes often, but I’d sure appreciate this one! It’s a march madness style of voting, with eliminations and new match ups…with the winner receiving a prize of $500. How perfect right before the holidays!
Thanks in advance, you all are simply the best!
Almond Fudge Bites
Yield: 81 bites
- 2 cup milk chocolate morsels
- 1 jar (7oz) marshmallow creme
- ½ cup Solo Pure Almond Paste
- ¾ cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup heavy cream
- pinch of salt
- ½ tsp almond extract
- 24 oz vanilla candy coating (almond bark)
- ¼ cup red candy melts
- ¼ cup green candy melts
- Prepare a 9x9 baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, add milk chocolate morsels, marshmallow creme and Pure Almond Paste. Don’t mix yet, just set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt butter with sugar, cream and pinch of salt over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. Set timer for 5 minutes and allow mixture to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add almond extract.
- Pour boiling mixture over chocolate morsels in mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth and creamy, may take a couple minutes.
- Pour into a prepared baking dish. Refrigerate for about 2-3 hours until set.
- Cut fudge bites into 1 inch cubes (you should get about 81 cubes). Melt vanilla candy coating according to package directions. Using a toothpick, dip each fudge bite into melted vanilla coating. Place on parchment paper to set and repeat with remaining bites. Melt red and green candy melts according to package directions (in separate bowls). Place melted chocolate in a ziploc sandwich bag and snip off the corner. Drizzle onto each fudge bite. Allow to set, about 15 minutes. I store my candy in an airtight container in the refrigerator. ENJOY!
