Woman's Weekly recipe This coffee fudge recipe is simple and easy to make. It combines a creamy fudge mix with the sharp bite of coffee to make a very tasty afternoon treat or edible gift. Share with your friends and enjoy


  • 2 rounded tbsp good instant coffee
  • 700g granulated sugar
  • 300ml evaporated milk (2 x 170g cans)
  • 100g butter
  • 2 tsp glucose syrup (we used Dr. Oetker Liquid Glucose)

You will also need:

  • 19cm square tin, lined with Bakewell paper

Add 100g (31/2oz) chopped pecans or walnuts. For a smooth fudge, just beat it for a minute. For a more crumbly texture, beat for longer


  1. Dissolve the coffee in 5 tablespoons boiling water and put in a deep, heavy pan with the sugar, milk, butter and glucose.
  2. Stir the mixture over a low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved; brush any sugar crystals down from the side of the pan with a brush dipped in boiled water. Bring to the boil and boil for about 10 minutes until the mixture reaches 115C on a sugar thermometer (or until a teaspoon of the mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball).
  3. Take the pan off the heat, and beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until thick and its cooled to 100C (about 2-3 minutes). Pour into the tin and spread evenly. Leave to set, and then cut into squares.

It can keep for ages, the main problem is keeping hands off and it will freeze fine but with the same problem.

How long can this fudge be kept for? Can it be frozen?
