Ingredients

  • 14 Ounces chocolate bar such as Trader Joe’s seventy-two percent cacao dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 Cup coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua
  • 1/2 Cup chocolate-covered espresso beans, chopped
  • 1 Pound bacon, chopped and cooked

Directions

Line a 9-by-9 baking dish with wax paper. Spray with non-stick cooking spray or use butter to grease the paper.

In a medium pot over low heat, combine all ingredients except the bacon. Stir frequently as everything melts together. As soon as all the chocolate is melted and the ingredients are combined, add the bacon and stir until it is incorporated into the fudge. Remove from heat.

Pour the fudge evenly into the dish. Smooth with a spatula so the surface is flat. Cover with wax paper and put in the fridge. Allow to cool for 2-3 hours before serving.

Bean Shopping Tip

Legumes are high in a number of nutrients, especially protein and fiber – filling you up with relatively few calories.

Bean Cooking Tip

Beans are done when they can be easily mashed with a fork – make sure to test a few in case they have not cooked evenly.
