Coffee Pecan Fudge

Recipe Courtesy of George Mohr

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
2 Tbsp. instant coffee granules
1/8 tsp. salt
1 (5 oz.) can evaporated milk
12 large marshmallows
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a 4-quart heavy saucepan.

Cook over medium heat; stirring constantly, 10 to 15 minutes or until sugar dissolves and marshmallows melt.

Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers at 234 degrees (soft ball stage).

Remove from heat.


Stir in chocolate morsels until melted. Stir in pecans and vanilla.

Spread fudge immediately into 2 aluminum foil-lined, buttered loaf pans.

Cool completely. Remove fudge from pans and slice.
