    Took shortcuts. Oh this is the best. I didn't find this too strong.. guess it is personal preference. I lined both tins with foil and when the fudge was set, it was easy to cut.. just remove from tin lifting the foil.. and slice. Easier than trying to cut in the tin.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Very tasty... However I would make some changes next time I make it. First, I would use a larger tin - these were way too tall to cut through w/o the top layer breaking off. Secondly, I would definitely line my tin with foil instead of buttering it - so, so, so much easier to get out of tin (and a cxlean tin to boot.  -  21 Jul 2008


    YUM! This is really very easy, and the results are impressive! **One note: This was very boozy (but good!) the first day, but I think the flavour mellowed a little as it sat; try to make it a day ahead (if you can resist).  -  21 Jul 2008
