At our house Coffee Fudge is a must make recipe during the holidays. I have been making this recipe for years.
I make it for Christmas parties, for food gifts, and I even ship some of it to my mom every year for Christmas.
If you know someone that loves coffee, this coffee fudge is a must try for the holidays!
When I send this to work with my husband it is gone in no time. Everyone that loves coffee loves it.
You could also wrap some of it up in a nice coffee cup for a fun food type of gift.
You might be thinking that fudge is hard to make, but it is not. It does take a little bit of time to make, but it isn’t hard to make.
Fudge is rich and sweet. That means that you can cut the pieces small and make a batch serve quite a few.
If you have never tried making homemade fudge give it a try this year!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into chunks
- 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1- 5 ounce can evaporated milk
- 12 large marshmallows, cut into pieces (or use 120 mini marshmallows)
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- Line a loaf pan with foil and grease. Set aside. You can also use an 8×8 pan lined with foil. A loaf pan gives you thicker pieces and an 8x8 pan gives you thinner ones.
- In a pan combine sugar, butter, coffee granules, salt, milk, and marshmallows.
- Bring to a boil and continue cooking over medium high heat until it reaches soft ball stage, which is 234 degrees, on a candy thermometer. You will need to stir this to keep it from burning and you do need a candy thermometer to make it.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and chocolate chips until melted.
- Pour mixture into lined loaf pan. Cool completely or overnight and let cut into squares.
