Here's an interesting Coffee Creation - a truly creative coffee recipe for Pure Coffee Fudge, that doesn't have a hint of chocolate in it. (Usually any bits of coffee found in fudges are used to improve and deepen the chocolate flavor.) Hope you'll give this one a try, and please post a comment about how this Coffee Fudge turns out for you. :) Big thanks to Dorina for sending in this unusual recipe.
Coffee Fudge (Makes 18)
half a cup black coffee
8 oz (225gms) butter
32 oz (900gms) sugar
one cup condensed milk
1 ¾ oz. (50gms) sultanas chopped *
Put all Ingredients except sultanas into a large saucepan and stir gently over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and stir occasionally, until a teaspoon of fudge dropped into a cup of cold water will form a soft ball.
Remove from heat and dip base of pan into cold water for a few minutes to cool contents, then beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens but will just pour from the pan. Quickly mix in the sultanas and pour into a greased pan to a depth of 3 to 5cms. Allow to set and then cut into squares.
* When reading this recipe, I thought that many might not love the taste of raisins. If that's true in your case, try substituting another type of dried fruit, or else just substitute some chopped nuts.
