450g granulated sugar
225g plain chocolate
230ml double cream
115ml strong black coffee (I used 2 teaspoons coffee powder, makes it quite strong tasting)
Place all the ingredients except the chocolate into a large, strong saucepan.
Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Break the chocolate into pieces and add to the mix stirring until dissolved.
Bring to the boil and boil steadily, stirring occasionally until the fudge reaches 238F on a sugar thermometer, or when it turns into a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
Remove from heat and mix until it begins to thicken.
Pour into a well greased square shallow tin and leave to set.
When almost set cut up into squares.
Store in an airtight container.
This fudge is my family favorite especially my daughters, it's so rich with a lovely coffee flavor.
