Pimp my fudge!

Looking to jazz up my plain-jane homemade chocolate fudge. What are some creative and delicious ideas for fudge flavors and additives?
Lately, I've been getting into fudge-- or at least, getting as far as the Never Fail Fudge recipe from the back of the marshmallow fluff container. While I'm a fan of the nice easy, reliable chocolate version that produces, though, I'd like to start using the plain chocolate as a base for some more creative flavors, more like the sort of thing you'd find at a specialty fudge shop. I've done the classic chocolate-walnut, but so far haven't had the guts to try any other fruit/nut/candy additions.
So I'm looking for nominations for your most mouth-watering and/or unusual flavors of fudge. Ideally, I'd like to stick with chocolate-and-X types of flavors, but I guess I could be interested in other base flavors if there's anything particularly delectable out there. Also, bonus points if anyone can provide any hints on the logistics of adding stuff to fudge (e.g. what items are too wet/too dry/too melty, how and when to mix things in, etc.). Thanks!!
