One of my most popular recipes this time of year is my Bailey’s Fudge. Actually, all of my fudge recipes are really popular this time of year, but especially the Bailey’s Fudge. Guys. People like their liquor and their chocolate together. Maybe a reason why this Red Wine Chocolate Cake is so popular.

I recently got a comment on my Bailey’s Fudge recipe from someone asking me to make Jack Daniel’s Fudge. And I was immediately intrigued.


I like whiskey.

Also . . . . at the risk of all of you coming together to start an intervention for this weird blogger stranger who’s posts you sometimes read . . . . I started another blog . . . . that is only cocktails.

Shake Drink Repeat is my new little fun side hobby because I have an abundance of free time.

Guys. I like sarcasm too.

SDR is a work in progress, but my hope is that in the future (read: After Christmas when I have more time), it will be the home of tons of fun and obscure cocktails that you can play with at home.

Let’s talk about this fudge!


The key to making an easy homemade fudge is to start with sweetened condensed milk. The basic ratio is 14 oz sweetened condensed milk to 3 cups of chocolate chips. But when you start throwing in other liquids (like whiskey) or other things (like Nutella) you have to tweak things a little bit.


  • Make sure that you stick to the recipe. I know, this is not a novel idea, but it’s pretty important.
  • When you measure the sweetened condensed milk, use a glass measuring cup and measure to the 8 oz mark. Do NOT use the whole can.
  • Make sure you buy SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK. It looks incredibly similar to the evaporated milk, but they work very differently. Your fudge will not set if you use evaporated milk.
  • Before cutting this fudge, stick it in the refrigerator (covered) for an hour. It will make it cut much more smooth.
  • To get the crisp edges you see on my fudge, I actually used a pairing knife and sliced of a tiny bit. You don’t need to do that if you aren’t a food blogger. It still tastes great with rough edges.

Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Fudge

Serves: 25 pieces
(tap # to scale)
Prep: 5 minutes
This Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Fudge is your favorite liquor and chocolate COMBINED!  Make this easy homemade fudge recipe with condensed milk in five minutes!


  • 3 1/2 cups chocolate chips I used milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk see note
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniel’s whiskey


  • Line an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with aluminum foil.
  • In a large bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave according to package instructions.
  • Stir in the sweetened condensed milk, the vanilla extract, and the whiskey.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking dish.  Cover with aluminum foil and let set completely (about four to eight hours).  Refrigerate for 1 hour before slicing. This last step of refrigeration is optional, but makes the fudge slice nicely.
  • Enjoy and store in an airtight container for two weeks.


Make sure you measure this out. A can from the grocery store is 14 oz and more than you need. Also make sure you are buying sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk as they are on the shelf next to each other and that is an easy mistake to make.

    Can i use dark chocolate bar instead of the chocolate chips ?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried that! If it is chopped up fine and is the same weight it will work.

  2. Colin says

    This Jack’s fudge recipe dies not work I stuck to the measurements exactly and it will not hsrden

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m really sorry this didn’t work for you Colin. If I had to guess, I would suspect that your Sweetened Condensed Milk is to blame. I would stick with Eagle Brand, double check that you bought Sweetened condensed milk and not Evaporated Milk and give the can a good mix before you measure out the amount you need for this.

  3. Ruby says

    Can you please tell me what the conversion would be for the quater of a cup to ML. I’m thinking of trying to make it next week

      118.294 ML

  4. Ruby says

    What is the cup conversion of the condensed milk in ML

    • Lisa Longley says

      4 ounces is 118.294 mls.

  5. Kathy Dart says

    Do you think Grand Marnier would work in the fudge recipe ? That and Jack Daniels are my drinks of choice so I will be trying that.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes! Really any alcohol could be switched out for the Jack in this.

  6. Lauren says

    This has been such a hit! I’ve made it a couple times already. Quick tip: 1 airplane bottle of booze is just shy of 1/4 cup.

    • Lisa Longley says

      What a great tip, Lynda! Thank you!

  10. Cindy says

    Could I make this with nuts added? If so, how much would you suggest?

    • Lisa Longley says

      You definitely could! I would add 1/2 a cup chopped.
