This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


2 tablespoons instant coffee (or espresso powder)
1/2 tablespoon water
12 ounces bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat the condensed milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Dissolve the instant coffee in the water (it will be thick) and stir into the condensed milk. (You can also just toss the instant coffee into the condensed milk but it won't dissolve completely. I tried this the first time and actually liked the effect of tiny bursts of coffee flavor throughout the fudge).
Add the chocolate chips, lower the heat, and stir until melted and smooth (don't scorch it!).
Pour into an oiled 8x8-inch pan. Chill in fridge until set (about 2 hours).
Tip: When cutting the fudge, a plastic knife is easiest. If using a regular knife, wipe it clean in between making cuts. Then use a spatula to lift out the pieces. You can also line the pan with wax paper for easier removal of fudge.

This looks so good! I am going to make it!!! Thanks!


It was my turn to host our neighborhood book club. Every month, the ladies in my neighborhood get together to laugh, chat, eat, and oh yeah, discuss the book we read that month. Our book club dinners are always a lot of fun, full of good food, good wine, and good conversation.

For dessert, I wanted something rich and satisfying yet easy to make. This fudge is ridiculously easy; 3 ingredients and about as many minutes to prepare. If you've been wondering what to do with the cans of organic condensed milk at TJ's, here's your recipe! Every time I've served it, I've been asked how to make it. At book club, I served pieces of the fudge with big fresh strawberries.

In general, a hint of coffee or espresso really enhances and intensifies the taste of chocolate. When my co-author Wona's husband had an office contest for best chocolate dessert, she sent him in with this fudge. Out of all the complex chocolate concoctions entered into the contest - guess what - the fudge won! When people asked Wona for the recipe, she was almost too embarrassed to admit how simple it is!
