Valentine's Day Almond Fudge Recipe.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Or Happy Love Day whatever you prefer.  Today I'm going to show the special people and the not so special people in my life I care about them.  I know we are only sold the image of Valentine's Day for romantic relationships, but I want to broaden that  image.   It can really suck and be a painful day for the people who don't have that sort of relationship.  Some  folks like to use today as a day to show off how many roses they received etc..  I don't like that and I think it's lame.  I think today should be spent doing random acts of kindness.

So on that note make a special treat for your  kids, co-workers, neighbor, boss, friends or enemy.
This chocolate treat is amazing. Please note fudge must be chilled at least 2 hours before devouring. 

You will need:
5 oz Bittersweet or Semisweet Chocolate, finely chopped.
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 (14oz) Can Sweetened Fat-Free or Regular Condense Milk. 
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
Hand full Chopped Roasted Almonds.
Pinch Coarse Sea Salt.
1/2 Tsp Flaked Salt 


Line 8 inch square baking pan with plastic wrap, leaving 2 inch overhang. Smooth out any wrinkles.
Combine chocolate, cocoa powder, condensed milk, almonds, vanilla, and coarse sea salt in a large heavy saucepan.  Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat unit chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.   Transfer fudge to prepared baking pan; spread evenly.   Let cool.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight. Uncover fudge; remove from pan by lifting overhanging plastic wrap.  Invert on cutting board remove wrap.  Cut into 8 strips; then cut each strip into 8 pieces.  If making ahead, cover and chill up to 2 weeks. To serve, return fudge to room temperature. Sprinkle with flake sea salt. 
Happy Love Day!
