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.
instant coffee granules - expresso preferred for more coffee flavor
1 1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
chopped pecans or walnuts
