Mocha Nut Fudge
Why I Love This Recipe
I was lucky enough to inherit my grandmother's cookbook collection along with all of her recipe notations. This fudgy candy earned high marks from that great candy-maker.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, milk and corn syrup. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil and sugar is dissolved; boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips, vanilla and coffee granules with a wooden spoon. Continue stirring until mixture is smooth and thick, about 5 minutes. Stir in walnuts.
Shape into two 9-in. logs; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Unwrap and cut into slices.
