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.

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.

    Is there a reciped for Kahlus fudge?

    • Lisa Longley says

      No, but I think you could just sub the Kahlua for the Amaretto.

      • Cheryl says

        Think I will try substituting frangelico – I’ll let you know how it turns out. ????. Thanks for the recipe!

        • Lisa Longley says

          Let me know how it goes!

  3. Lawrence says

    Hi , Quick question. Why does the Amaretto Fudge require only 2TBSP of Amaretto while the other fudge requires 1/4 of a cup of the booze ( Bailey’s and Fireball whiskey). I love Amaretto, can I increase to 1/4 cup with out destroying the mixture?

    • Lisa Longley says

      It was the first recipe I did with alcohol, and I was nervous to use too much. So I think you can definitely try with 1/4 cup!

  4. Kg says

    Im sorry but confused the writter kept saying she. Then reffered to her son quinn who was having surgery.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I lost my second child, a son named Elliot, during a surgery when he was one week old. So I was referring to the anxiety I felt because of that trauma while dealing with my daughter (Quinn’s) surgery.

  5. Pam says

    I have a dumb question to ask. Can kids eat this? Does the alcohol freeze out?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I wouldn’t personally give this to my children because the alcohol does not cook out.

    I’m so sorry about your son. I just lost my daughter in September. She was 36 years old and also slipped away during surgery. Needless to say I don’t feel like celebrating. But we all have obligations. For some reason I thought amaretto fudge sounded so good!saw your recipe then read your beautiful post. I think it’s a sign that I picked the right recipe. Thank you and God Bless you and your beautiful family.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Oh Mary, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I would not wish the loss of a child on anyone. The loss of a one week old and the loss of a 36 year old are no where near the same thing, but I can tell you that my loss has become less painful with time, and I hope yours will as well. Give yourself a lot of grace this holiday season and do only what sounds okay. I’m hoping the fudge brings a small smile.

  7. tina says

    if you were to use amaretto oil do you know how much to use ?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I have no experience with amaretto oil, but it looks like it is similar to using vanilla extract in a recipe, which would require different ratios of everything, not just the amaretto. I would look for a basic fudge recipe (or use the one on the side of the can of sweetened condensed milk) and then just add few drops of the oil and taste it, seeing if you need more before the fudge sets.

  8. Murphey says

    Hi, hope all is well. Followed the recipe. Doesn’t taste like amaretto at all. I used white chocoate and slivered almonds. Almost used frangelica instead, used Kailua instead of vanilla. Anywhoo….my fudge is bland and so hard I can hardly cut it. Any advice?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Murphey! If I’m being honest, my advice would be to follow the recipe. Given the number of changes you made (especially switching from chocolate to white chocolate), its basically a completely different recipe, so I’m not really able to give you much insight as to what went wrong without making it myself.

  9. Loisanne Madden says

    I want to use this to coat plastic spoons , to be used in coffee. think it will work ?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Loisanne, that sounds dreamy! Unfortunately, I don’t think this recipe would firm up enough to work for that.

  10. Loisanne Madden says

    Re: coating plastic spoons with the fudge,
    Lisa, went ahead with the Amaretto, and did the plastic spoons anyway, seems to have turned out just fine ! next I’m gonna do it with Baileys.
