This recipe is now a staple in our household for school related activities, bake sales and Christmas tins and such. EVERYONE loves it. My daughter who is 15 loves to make it and share it at school. I did buy the Chambord because the first time I made it was for Christmas gifts. It is expensive, but the flavor is amazing and only gets better after a few days. Its very subtle at first, but then it just infuses the fudge and gives it a very nice raspberry flavor that I'm not sure you'd get with the preserves. You'll also find yourself making several batches and using up the bottle of Chambord that keeps quite well.
We use the white chocolate chips for the top layer. Add in your Chambord and just a few drops of red food coloring to get desired shade of pink you want. While I'm sure it tastes just as great all mixed together, it really is the double layer that distinguishes this fudge from others and makes it stand out. If you're going for presentation - use white chips for the top layer.
Tip: try some tossing some sliced almonds int he bottom layer for those who like a little nutty flavor in their fudge :)
