Mexican Coffee Fudge

 


Ingredients

21/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup whole milk
3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cubed
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped


Preparation


1. Butter an 8" square baking dish and set aside.

2. Dissolve the instant espresso powder and cinnamon in 3 teaspoons of hot water. Stir until a paste forms, and set aside.

3. In a saucepan, heat milk, sugar, butter and chocolate over a medium heat until it reaches a boil. Do not stir or scrape down sides.

4. Lower heat, add a candy thermometer and heat (without stirring) until mixture reaches softball stage (238°F).

5. Remove from heat; allow to cool to 110°F, then with a rubber spatula scrape in espresso mixture. In an electric mixer, using paddle attachment, beat mixture until it loses its gloss and thickens.

6. Spread fudge evenly into prepared 8" square pan. Let cool for 20 minutes, then cut into 9 squares.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
