Looking for bourbon fudge recipes

I'm looking for a good bourbon fudge recipe that is made on the stovetop. I've come across a few microwave recipes that don't look that great. I'm also wanting to cook the alcohol out of the bourbon, so the kids don't get tanked :)

I'm wondering if I should add the bourbon at the beginning, or when I add the nuts at the end when everything is trying to set up.

At the end, your kids will get tanked.

You might try a slow simmer of the bourbon, to cook out the alcohol and concentrate the flavor, then add it at the end.

Just a note, you cannot cook all the alcohol out. There is always some left in there. Just an FYI for you. If you find a good recipe, please post the link, I'd love to try it!

I made the fudge:
2 3/4 cup sugar
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup half-and-half
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


I added about 3 oz coffee in the boil to help bring out chocolate flavor.

cooked to 232F and let it potentially rise to 234 -- soft ball stage
I let it sit until about 150F and poured it into a bowl to mix. I got the matte finish and poured again into an aluminum covered baking dish.
I poured about 1/3 cup bourbon on top and stirred in.

I have more of a fudge syrup/topping and it never really set. I'm trying to bake it in the oven to remove moisture. Anything else I can do to dry it out?
