Chocolate and coffee go great together. Add a few nuts and you have a great bite size piece of yumminess!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is the easiest fudge we have ever made. We thought it was missing a step because it was seriously that easy to make. No marshmallow creme in this recipe, but the result is one of the creamiest fudges we've had. We used espresso because it adds a richer flavor to the chocolate. The hint of coffee pairs nicely with the chocolate and pecan flavors. It's rich and sweet, but no so sweet that it hurts your teeth. This would make a great gift for friends. The Test Kitchen
