Mocha Fudge

Mocha Fudge

As I mentioned in my last post I am counting down the hours to hosting my very first Cooke Swap! One of the perks of the busy Christmas season. It is a fun way to get together for a few hours with friends.

To make it extra special I am making a few different types of fudge. It is a nice change from cookies, is super easy to make and is not something we enjoy that often so is a bit of a treat.

Again, keeping things easy I am using another no fail recipe. Many fudge recipes require a lot of stirring, not so with this one. It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. The hardest part is letting it cool.

This one is for the coffee lovers in the group! The rich aroma fills the kitchen as you are making it. The touch of chocolate adds just the right amount of sweetness  to tone down the bitter instant coffee for an fantastic combination.

In a medium sized saucepan combine the butter, milk, sugar, and instant coffee. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Continue to boil and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vanilla marsh mallows, chocolate chips  and nuts. Stir vigorously for 2 minutes or until all the marshmallows are completely melted. Por into an 8 inch square pan that has been lined with foil and buttered. Chill. Cut into squares.

And with it being nice and close to Christmas we should all still have plenty of goodies left to last through the holiday.

Sugar being my passion I am going all out for the sweets selection!

First up is an assortment of fudge. If you have never made fudge, this is an easy no fail recipe. It is a great way to add something different to your cookie tray.

One of my go to recipes for fudge is Butter Pecan. Rich and buttery, creamy and luxuirous.

Sure to be a favorite with everyone.
