Coconut Coffee Fudge (1949)

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup light cream or evaporated milk
  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 2 tbspns corn syrup
  • 2 tbspns butter
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
Combine sugar, cream, coffee, and corn syrup in saucepan, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring until a small amount of mixture forms a soft ball in cold water (236 degrees).

Remove from heat.  Add butter and vanilla without stirring.  Cool to lukewarm (110 degrees). Then beat until mixture begins to thicken and loses its gloss.  At once, stir in the coconut.

Turn into greased 8x8x2-inch pan.  When cold, cut into squares.  Makes about 36 pieces.
