Coffee Shop Fudge From Quick Cooking
This recipe is one that my son, Jackson, and I worked on together. After several efforts, we decided this version was a winner. It is smooth, creamy and has an irresistible crunch from pecans. The coffee and cinnamon blend nicely to provide subtle flavor. -Beth Osborne Skinner, Bristol, Tennessee
