Mocha fudge - Mockafudge


Home-made fudge can be a good present to bring to a party. Wrap the pieces in waxed paper and put them in a nice can.

Approx 30 pieces

1 ¼ cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
1½ tbsps cocoa powder
good ¾ cup whipping cream
1 ¾ oz butter or margarine
2 tsps instant coffee
1 tbsp hot water
good 1/3 cup scalded, chopped almonds

Mix sugar, vanilla sugar, cocoa, cream and fat in a saucepan and boil for 20 to 25 minutes, until you can shape a little of the mixture to a soft ball, when it’s been dripped into a glass of cold water. Stir occasionally while boiling. Then add coffee diluted with 1 tbsp hot water. Stir the mixture vigorously until cooled and thickened.

Add the almonds and pour the fudge into a lightly oiled, square pan, approx 6 x 8 inches. Leave to set and then cut in pieces. Wrap them up in cellophane or waxed paper.
