CHOCOLATE WHISKY FUDGE: World Whiskey Day

Here's a food holiday I can get behind. Today is World Whiskey Day. Whisky goes well with many dark chocolates, and I've been to a few Scotch and Chocolate Tastings. Have a look at the Nibble for an Overview of Pairing Chocolate & Scotch.

And, to answer your question about spelling: The Scots spell it whisky and the Irish spell it whiskey, with an extra 'e'. This difference in the spelling comes from the translations of the word from the Scottish and Irish Gaelic forms. Whiskey with the extra 'e' is also used when referring to American whiskies.

Want to have your Whiskey and Chocolate together in one bite? Try this Chocolate Whisky Fudge.

CHOCOLATE WHISKY FUDGE

Ingredients 
12 ounce dark chocolate, chopped
1 cup Whiskey (Scotch)
2 (1 lb) boxes powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans or 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions
Melt chocolate in microwave or double broiler, stirring frequently.
As soon as chocolate is melted, mix Scotch with powdered sugar in  large bowl and add to melted chocolate, stir well, add nuts.
Turn into 13x9x2-inch pan and cover with plastic wrap. This sets quickly, so cool it long enough to set but still warm enough to cut.
