If you’ve got a candy thermometer and a sweet tooth, cookbook author and food stylist Annie Rigg has Sweet Things, a whole pile of delicious treats for you to make for friends, family…yourself…really, anyone who comes to mind. With foolproof instructions from a master confectioner, homemade coffee almond fudge is well within reach. 

I love this rich fudge, with its slightly burnt toffee flavor and distinct coffee hit. If you can get your hands on some good-quality coffee extract, you could use that in place of instant espresso powder.

Extracts vary in intensity from brand to brand, so build up the flavor gradually until you reach the required flavor. The small amount of chocolate in this fudge is there just to give the coffee a little extra oomph rather than to make a full-on chocolate statement.
