Mocha Nut Fudge

I was lucky enough to inherit my grandmother's cookbook collection along with all of her recipe notations. This fudgy candy earned high marks. —Brandy LaFountain, Marion, Michigan

    Good fudge! I omitted the nuts (family preference). Next time I think I'll use less coffee and dissolve it in the vanilla extract, as I found it the flavour a bit too strong, and it was not completely dissolved. Otherwise, it was very easy to make and everyone liked it.

    I made this today, and I can't stop nibbling! So easy and so good! I used black walnuts and a superfine ground instant coffee a friend brought me from Columbia. I knew those two bold flavors could possibly overwhelm the chocolate, so I only used half what the recipe called for. The result is fantastic. I can't wait to do this again with different substitutions. Just a really really good recipe. 5 stars!

    This was very good fudge. My only complaint is that it didn't make near enough to share! lol
