My preachers wife introduced me to this fudge. She is one heck of a cook, so I trusted her on this one, and am I ever glad I did. I tweaked the recipe just a tad to my liking. Mine turned out beautiful and creamy delicious!

Make sure you cool completely before cutting...chilling also helps give you a more beautiful cut.

Enjoy!

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 c
unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 Tbsp
instant espresso powder
2 1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
corn syrup
1 can(s)
( 12 ounce ) evaporated milk
2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line a 9 by 13 inch pan with foil, letting foil hang over edges. Set aside. In a bowl, combine chocolate, butter, and espresso.

In a large dutch oven, combine sugar, corn syrup, and milk, then bring to a boil over medium heat.

Cook, stirring often with a wooden spoon to prevent boiling over, until mixture reaches 235 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and pour chocolate mixture into hot milk. Stir until smooth. Add almonds, stir just until combined, then pour fudge into prepared pan, smoothing top with spoon. Chill at least 2 hours.

Invert fudge onto a cutting board and peel off foil. Cut fudge into 1 inch squares.
