How to Make Amaretto Fudge

For the full recipe with all of the measurements, see the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  1. Melt the chocolate chips. You can do this over low heat on the stove top or you can do it in the microwave. Either way, make sure that you don’t overheat the chocolate or it will result in grainy fudge.
  2. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk. It is imperative here that you make sure you have sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk.
  3. Add in the vanilla and amaretto. Pour the chocolate into a foil lined 8 by 8 inch dish. Let it set for about four hours and then cut the fudge.

Amaretto is one of my favorite liqueurs. It is amazing in my Amaretto Sour! But did you know that it is simple to make Homemade Amaretto? It would be amazing to gift with this fudge.

Store this fudge in an airtight container for up to two weeks. It can be stored at room temperature. This fudge also freezes really well. To do that, place it in a single layer and then freeze. After a few hours, transfer it to an airtight container. Store it in the freezer for up to three months.

    Love the fudge, Lisa!
    It’s so hard when your kids get surgery. We’ve even through that. Just keep those pain meds going on schedule. It’ll be over soon!

  2. Kathleen @ Yummy Crumble says

    I’m so glad things went well and she’s doing better. I can’t imagine what that’s like. Whenever my kids cry from being in pain or just getting their shots I get sick to my stomach. You are amazing no matter what people think :) Yay for booze!

  3. Thalia @ butter and brioche says

    I love amaretto so this recipe is just perfect for me. Craving some of this fudge right now – it looks wickedly delicious Lisa!

  4. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says

    I would have been drinking from the bottle AND eating fudge all day. ((HUGS)) to you!!

  5. Julie says

    How well do you think it would work if I subbed in bourbon or scotch? We aren’t really amaretto fans here, but the idea of scotch laced chocolate sounds yummy.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hmmmm . . . . I’m not sure. Here’s the thing, I think the alcohol content might affect things a little. So I’m sure that scotch has a much higher alcohol content than amaretto, so I wondering if that would effect the way that the fudge sets. You know? If you give it a try, let me know!

      • Gail says

        What size(oz’s)can of evaporated milk?

        • Lisa Longley says

          Oooo, definitely not evaporated milk! That will not work at all. You need Sweetened Condensed Milk and you need 14 oz.

  6. Julie says

    Yum! I just made this and it was fabulous! I had to share your post on my blog! All the best! :)

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad you liked it Julie!

  7. Jean says

    Made this fudge and it’s wonderful. First fudge I like. How long will it last in the fridge? Can this be frozen?

    • Lisa Longley says

      So glad you liked it Jean! I store my fudge on the counter in a sealed container for 2 weeks. I think it stores better that way than in the refrigerator. And this is my favorite source about freezing desserts: http://www.crazyforcrust.com/2014/10/freeze-desserts/

      • Mags says

        recipe says store in fridge Also, while setting up in fridge, do you cover it or leave it open to the elements?

        • Lisa Longley says

          You are absolutely right Mags. I lose track of what fudge recipes I’m talking about sometimes. Over all fudge stores better out of the fridge. However, the ones with alcohol stay set better in the fridge in a sealed container. Realistically, you could do either and it will still taste amazing.

  8. Becki says

    what happened to the Bailey’s fudge recipe? I no longer see it on this site. will you re-post it? Thank you.

  9. Lisa says

    I do have to say… tried it with semi-sweet chips (that’s what we still had left over from winter baking) and may need to increase the Amaretto a bit next time because the semi-sweet slightly overpowers it.

    Still good… but more of a dark chocolate effect.

    Recipe is SO EASY! Thank you!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad you liked it Lisa!

  10. Lynn says

    I’m using semi-sweet chips how much more amaretto should I use?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Same amount of amaretto :)
