Chocolate-Almond Fudge Squares

Prep: 20 mins
Chill: 4 hours
Yield: 64 squares

  • 1 lb. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1.) Lightly oil an 8-inch square baking pan and line with waxed paper. Melt 12 ounces chocolate with cream in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, whisking until smooth (do not let bottom of bowl touch water). Remove pan from heat; whisk in vanilla and salt.

2.) Melt remaining chocolate in another bowl set over same pan of simmering water, whisking until smooth. Pour plain chocolate into prepared pan and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

3.) Spread chocolate-and-cream mixture over set chocolate. Sprinkle with almonds; gently press into chocolate. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and chill until firm, 3 to 4 hours.

4.) Run a sharp knife around pan edges. Turn fudge out onto a cutting board; peel away paper. Turn right side up and cut into 64 squares. Let stand at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
