Mocha Coconut Fudge


Does fudge scare you?

Not the actual fudge........but the prospect of making it?

It's always terrified me. So I've never made it up until like, the last month. 

But I learned a trick. Make the easy kind of fudge. It's not called cheating, it's called being smart. I mean, how sad is it when you have a whole pan of what is supposed to be amazing-ness, only to have it turn out like poo and seize on you?!

So, un-complicate things, save money/ingredients, and enjoy more happiness. And by happiness, I mean fudge indulgence.
What could be better?

This fudge is seriously easy.

This fudge is THE fudge to make for the coconut lovers in your life.

Because this fudge, tastes like heaven.

Or, If you aren't familiar with what heaven tastes like, a better example of this gloriousness is a coconut mocha iced coffee from Dunkin's. Not even lying about this.

Coconut Mocha Fudge

Makes an 8x8 inch pan

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 can (15 oz) sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 tbsp. espresso powder (or instant coffee)
1 tso. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1/2 cup flaked coconut, toasted

Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray.
First layer (mocha):Add  semi-sweet chocolate to a pan on the stove top and melt completely on low heat, careful not to seize.
Once melted, add in half of the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, the coffee powder.
Stir with a spatula until combined and fairly smooth, then spread evenly in the bottom of the greased pan. 
Mixture will be thick. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes while you make your second layer.
Second layer (coconut):
Add white chocolate to another pan and melt completely on low heat, again, careful not to seize.
Add in remaining condensed milk, and coconut extract, stirring til combined well.
Remove first layer of fudge from freezer and add white chocolate layer on top, spreading evenly to coat.
Top with toasted coconut and chill in the refrigerator for 60-90 minutes.
When you are ready to cut your fudge, fill a large cup with hot water, dip a very sharp knife into the water, blot with a towel and cut your fudge into the size you desire!
So easy!
