    5 cups sugar(2 pounds)
    2 sticks unsalted butter
    1 cup whole milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
    25 large marshmallows, ripped in half
    11.5 oz Ghiradelli 60% cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips
    2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    3/4 cup Jack Daniels, or a whiskey you really like. You will be able to really taste it!

    1. Whisk whiskey with confectioner’s sugar, and set aside.

    2. Foil and butter a 9 x 13 (or larger) baking pan.

    3. Put sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla in a large pot with a heavy bottom. Stirring steadily until mixture boils, continue stirring while letting it boil for 3 minutes (time it, this is important). Remove from heat.

    4. Add the marshmallows and chocolate, stirring until all of it is melted and blended into the sugar mix.

    5. Give whiskey mixture a quick stir, and add it to the pot, stirring until fully incorporated.

    6. Pour into a greased pan, and chill. Let mellow for a day before cutting.

    My BIL sent this over to me today. I have not done this yet myself, but it looks like it would be a fun appetizer for something different during the holidays. He said that he has also done this with Crown and another with Rum and they all turned out great ;)

    HUGE waste of time and money! I followed recipe to the letter and ended up with a grainy mess that didn't smell or taste like whiskey. I know how to recover a failed fudge recipe so I added a little bit of water to incorporate the sugar and brought it, this time, to soft ball/240F. It did smooth out with the re-do but it never really set up as it should AND, no big surprise, it still does NOT taste at all like Jack.
