For years, I have purchased Amaretto Chocolate Swirl Fudge in fancy candy shoppes. This delicious confection is a chocolate fudge swirled with pink amaretto flavored fudge. It tastes like chocolate covered cherries with a hint of almond. I would love to have the recipe for this wonderful candy but candy store owners are unwilling to give out the "top secret" ingredients.
BUT I HAVE FOUND THE RECIPE WOOHOO!
Serving Size : 32
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons almond-flavored liqueur
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped almonds -- toasted
Butter loaf pan, 9 X 5 X 3 inches. Cook sugar, milk, half-and-half, corn
syrup and almond-flavored liqueur in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat,
stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cook, stirring
occasionally, to 234 degrees on candy thermometer or until small amount of
mixture dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when
removed from water; remove from heat. Add margarine.
Cool mixture to 120 degrees without stirring. (Bottom of saucepan will be
lukewarm.) Beat vigorously and continuously 5 to 10 minutes or until candy
is thick and no longer glossy. (Mixture will hold its shape when dropped
from a spoon.) Quickly stir in almonds. Spread in pan; cool. Cut into
