    Coffee Pecan Fudge

    Nuts can be enjoyed at any time of year, but they're always particularly popular at Christmas. They make an eye-catching centrepiece for the table, ready to round off a meal or to nibble as a snack. Look out for our attractive gift packs too. Choose from Luxury Mixed Nuts (1kg), Luxury Dried Fruit and Nut Selection (700g) and a range of dried fruit and nut baskets.

    Ingredients

    • 700g granulated sugar
    • 300ml evaporated milk
    • 50ml water
    • 100g butter
    • 2tsp liquid glucose
    • 2tbsp instant coffee
    • 100g chopped pecan nuts

    Method

    1. In a large pan, heat together 700g granulated sugar, 300ml evaporated milk, 50ml water, 100g butter, 2tsp liquid glucose and 2tbsp instant coffee dissolved in a little water.
    2. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, removing any crystals from the side of the pan with a brush dipped in clean water. Then boil gently for approximately 12-15 minutes or until the fudge reaches 115°C on a sugar thermometer (or until a teaspoon of the mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball).
    3. Remove from the heat, add 100g chopped pecan nuts and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes "fudgy". Pour into a greased 20cm square tin. When firm, remove and cut into squares.
