Fireball cinnamon whiskey is good on its own, but I personally love adding it to baked goods (especially chocolate fudge) to add a spicy cinnamon kick. It adds a depth of flavor to any dish that a normal sprinkle of cinnamon can't compete against. Maybe I'm biased, it might just be the alcohol talking.

Even if you've taken 2-3 shots of the stuff before diving into your baking, this easy Fireball fudge only requires a few ingredients and a few minutes (almost zero prep time!), making this one of those no-bake recipes you can whip up on a midnight whim.

This easy Fireball fudge recipe includes white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk (please, oh please do not get evaporated milk), unsalted butter, pure vanilla extract, and about 1/4 cup Fireball whiskey. You'll also need red food coloring to decorate. Depending on the time of year you can substitute the color. Use orange food coloring if you are preparing this in the Fall.

Start by preparing your 8-inch baking pan by lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil and grease with  Lining your pan will make it 10x easier when you slice it up.

Next, fill a small saucepan with about an inch of water and bring to a simmer. Grab a large heat-proof bowl and place bowl over the simmering pan of water.  This is called a double boiler. Pour the white chocolate baking chips into the bowl along with the butter, sweetened condensed milk, and 1/4 cup Fireball whisky. Whisk until butter and chocolate are melted.

Remove the mixture from the heat and place 1/4 cup of the mixture into a small bowl. Add your food dye and stir to combine. Set aside.

Pour the white fudge mixture into the prepared pan and use a knife to even out the mixture. Drizzle on the food coloring mixture and use a toothpick to swirl the color into the fudge. Less is more when it comes to creating a design.

Place the fudge in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set. When ready, remove the fudge from the pan and slice into bite-size squares. Or better yet, use cookie cutters to cit out the red fudge into fun shapes. Serve.
