Legend has it that the ever-popular treat known as fudge was created on accident. The delicious mistake is believed to have occurred when a confectioner botched a caramel recipe — hence the phrase "Oh, Fudge!"

Join us in celebrating this confectionary concoction with a recipe for coffee-shop style fudge!

To make coffee-shop fudge you’re going to need:

  • 250 ml of Chopped Pecans (Optional)
  • 750 ml of Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 400 g of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 30 ml of Strong Brewed Coffee (At Room Temperature)
  • 2.5 ml of Ground Cinnamon
  • .625 ml Salt
  • 5 ml Vanilla Extract


Once you’ve got everything together, you’ll be ready to make some mouthwatering fudge.

  1. Line a 20 cm square pan with parchment paper, then, grease the paper with butter and set the pan aside. If you’ve decided to use pecans, place them on a microwave-safe pie plate. Microwave the pecans, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes. Stop and stir the pecans once a minute until the 4 minutes are up. Set the pan of pecans aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, milk, coffee, cinnamon and salt. Something worth noting is that the cinnamon will be the strongest flavor in competition with the taste of the coffee, so feel free to cut back on, or add more cinnamon based on your tastes.
  3. Microwave the mixture, uncovered, on high for 90 seconds. Stir until smooth. Mix in the vanilla and pecans.
  4. Once fully blended, transfer into the prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Remove from pan; cut into 2.5 cm squares.

Cover and store at room temperature.
