Coffee Fudge

  • Makes 24 squares
Coffee Fudge

Coffee and walnuts give this easy-to-make sweet a lovely flavour.


  • 2 tblsp instant coffee
  • 1 tblsp hot water
  • 500 grams sugar
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ - ½ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Dissolve the coffee in the hot water and set aside.
  2. Put the sugar, butter and milk into a heavy-based saucepan and stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Do not boil at this stage.
  3. Bring to the boil without stirring. Boil for about 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning, until a sugar thermometer reaches 116°C.
  4. Remove from the heat and, when the bubbles subside, add the walnuts and coffee mixture. Beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes grainy and thick though still pourable. This takes about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour into a greased and paper-lined 18cm square cake tin. Mark into shapes, when cold, cut into pieces and store in an airtight container
