Almond Chocolate Fudge

I found this recipe last year when I was looking for some thing quick and easy to make to give as gifts for Christmas.  For years now I have made sweets to give to friends and neighbours, but most of them were very time consuming and I was getting to the point where I almost decided to give it up, until I discovered a number of recipes that made it so much easier.  This is one of them. One of the things I love about this recipe is that you can change the flavour by adjusting what fruit and nuts to add to it.
