Amaretto Fudge

Use an amaretto flavored syrup if want the flavor but you'd rather not use alcohol.

* 3 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
* 1/4 cup amaretto liqueur, or an amaretto-flavored syrup
* 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
* 3/4 cup sliced almonds

Butter an 11x7-inch or 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle the dish with sliced almonds.

Combine chocolate chips and the sweetened condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl; loosely cover with plastic wrap. Heat for 3 to 3 1/2 minutes, until chocolate is melted; stir until smooth. Stir in the amaretto and almond extract. Spoon the mixture evenly over the almonds then gently spread to the sides of the baking dish. Refrigerate until chilled. cut into small squares or turn out of the dish and cut into small squares to serve.
