Mocha Fudge

It is just after six this am. I wasn't planning on getting up this early, I went to bed late, and was pretty tired when I did that. However, Ian was on a completely different schedule, and as he was blissfully sleeping most of the evening last night, (the majority of it in his grandpa's and uncle's arms), he is now wide awake, and very happy to just reflect on how great his little life is right now. :)

I've been asked to post the recipe for my favourite fudge here. I hardly even remember where this recipe came from. I believe it originally came from my Nana, one of those amazing family recipes that you don't want to lose. We of course don't have the original recipe, due to our first fire, but I think I've made it enough times to remember it. :)

Mocha Fudge

1 cup butter

3/4 cup cocoa

3/4 liquid coffee

3 cups brown sugar

4 1/2 cups icing sugar

In a saucepan, slowly bring the butter, cocoa, brown sugar and coffee to a rolling boil. Boil together on medium for five minutes. Remove from heat. Slowly add icing sugar. (Optional: you can use a sifter or a sieve to get rid of any lumps in the sugar before you add it). Mix thoroughly. Pour into a buttered 9x9 pan. Chill. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I was totally confident that I would remember this recipe easily, since I've made it many times, but as I started to write it down, the details seemed a bit fuzzy. I'm nearly one hundred percent positive that all the measurements are correct, and if you follow what I've written here, it should turn out beautifully. If not, my sincerest apologies. :)

Note: Even if for some reason it doesn't turn out, with that mixture of ingredients, it's still sure to taste amazing and would make an incredible fudge sauce for ice cream! :)

Final word: I really, really hope that my disclaimer does not in any way hinder your trying out of this recipe! Please try it out and let me know what you think! I will be quite disappointed if I don't hear any results! :)


  1. I have had this before, made by Caleigh Funston herself. ;-) Sooooo yummy. Now that the recipe is here, I think I'll add it to my Christmas baking! Just regular coffee? Or do you make it a little stronger for the fudge?

  2. This going to be my first recipe to make for Christmas!!! YUMMY

  3. Gasp! I can't believe you're sharing the secret recipe with the world.


    Actually I think it's fine because there's a certain touch and you have it and that is what makes it so amazing. Although it tastes good made by other people too. You might want to add that the coffee should be strong. In the orginal, it was instant. And to further boost your nearly 100% confidence, it looks bang on to me. =)
    Love you!
