Cardamom Chocolate Fudge is an easy to make, flavorful, melt in the mouth kind of homemade chocolate. I've made this recipe on several occasions and it never fails to please my guests. From parties to engagement gifts, the best part is that you can decorate or roll these chocolatey balls in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, cocoa powder, etc. Dip them in melted chocolate too.
