Today I wanted to make a bitter version of my ‘Super Easy Chocolate Fudge’. I used Cadbury’s Baking Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa) and added Instant Coffee Granules. I added 1 tablespoonful (15ml) Coffee Granules. The Fudge was fairly bitter, though I could have added a little more as I love very strong coffee.


180g Dark Chocolate *I used Cadbury’s Baking Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa)
180g Condensed Milk
1 tablespoon Instant Coffee Granules
2 teaspoons Hot Water *OR Rum, Brandy, etc.
1 pinch Salt *optional

  1. Line a small square OR rectangular container with baking paper.
  2. Place Instant Coffee Granules in a heat-proof mixing bowl, add Hot Water (OR Rum, Brandy, etc.) and stir.
  3. Cut Dark Chocolate into small pieces and add to the bowl. Pour Condensed Milk over.
  4. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute OR until Chocolate melts. Do not boil. You just need to heat up. *Note: Heating time depends on the power of the microwave.
  5. Use a spatula to stir well until smooth. Heat extra time as required. Add Salt and mix well.
  6. Pour into the prepared container and spread evenly, and allow it to cool. Then leave it in fridge until firm. Cut into bite-size pieces.
