St. Patrick's Day is coming quick, so how about whipping up something with a bit o' Irish in it?  Irish Cream Liqueur adds a sweet touch to this fudge recipe.

Anyone will be "lucky" to get a bite! You might even find this to be better than your favorite gourmet cheesecake!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Butter a 8x8 inch pan.
  2. Place the 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup butter into a microwave safe bowl, then microwave at 45 second intervals until melted.
  3. Stir in the confectioner's sugar and Irish cream until mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts. Place mixture in the prepared pan and lay a sheet of plastic wrap over top; press and smooth top down.
  4. Melt remaining chocolates until soft. Remove from heat and with a fork beat in the butter and Irish cream until smooth. Spread topping over cooled fudge with a knife.
