Two great tastes that taste great together

One of the motives behind msmemory's and my perambulations around Cape Cod yesterday was to confirm the horrifying news: Coach and Four, her favorite source of fudge, has apparently gone out of business. *Sigh*. So over lunch, we agreed that it's time for us to learn how to make fudge. After sufficient experiments, we can hopefully figure out how to make it just right for her; besides, it gives me a new foodstuff to experiment with.

Which brings us to my boss. She's wandering around today with a can she just got from a Little Tiny Distillery in Scotland, full of Scotch Fudge. I'm just finishing a tiny square of it now, and it's luscious: enough Scotch flavor to really come through without being completely overpowering.

So I now have a fun project for sometime. First, figure out how to make basic chocolate fudge. Then, start playing with the alternatives and adulterants. Scotch fudge clearly works, which implies that there are lots of liquid flavorings worth playing with. I mean, the Espresso fudge is probably worth the project all by itself...
