This recipe is one that my son, Jackson, and I worked on together. After several efforts, we decided this version was a winner. It is smooth, creamy and has an irresistible crunch from pecans. The coffee and cinnamon blend nicely to provide subtle flavor. -Beth Osborne Skinner, Bristol, Tennessee

"This recipe is delicious. I made some for my neighbor for Christmas and he told me it is the best fudge he ever had."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2013

"I would REALLY appreciate it if recipes were done in the "traditional" way and not microwave!!!!! I DO NOT like preparing foods in microwaves, seriously, just for kicks I had made recipes using the microwave directions and converted it over to "traditional" methods, not only did it turn out better, it saved me no more time than doing it the traditional way! In fact I had chocolate that started to burn, melted things that would have been so much faster and easier than constantly pulling it out of the microwave, stirring, putting it back in, etc., those processes actually took longer and the results weren't anywhere near as good! Microwave cooking is NOT that great!"

"Well loved by all! I am not a coffee drinker but this has a hint that is not too overwhelming to the un-initiated. Extracts such as almond or orange are a great substitute if coffee overtones are not desired."
