Reviews for Coffee Shop Fudge
"I've been using this recipe for years. It is a huge hit with my family and my co-workers. It's simple to make, but people think you are a genius for knowing how to make it."
"I loved the recipe!!! Only my first time making fudgeXP I did sub a cup of peanut butter chips in, I love that chochlate-coffee- peanut buttery flavor."
"This recipe is delicious. I made some for my neighbor for Christmas and he told me it is the best fudge he ever had."
"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."
