Submitted by: Deb
Coffee Creations Comments: With coffee (you can use espresso powder instead of the instant coffee powder if you prefer), Bailey Irish Cream and whole coffee beans as a garnish on top - how could this possibly NOT be a coffee lover's dream come true?
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons instant coffee powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light cream or Bailey's Irish Cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon rum extract (omit if using Irish Cream)
Whole coffee beans, optional
Mix sugar, coffee powder, salt, ceam, corn syrup and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue cooking without stirring to 234 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat. Add butter and rum extract, but do not stir. Cool to lukewarm. Beat until mixture begins to thicken and loses its gloss.
Spread in buttered 8" square pan While still warm, make in 1" squares and press a coffee bean into center of each square, if desired. When cold, cut into pieces.
