So a few weeks ago while I was still studying for my exams, I read this post from How Sweet It Is, an amazing blog filled with lots of sweet recipes. At the time I was unable to make this recipe due to my schedule, but I vowed that someday I would make it. So today I did just that.
Truthfully, the whole process took a lot longer than I expected and was actually a little more complicated than I thought. The process of making the two layers and the hardening in between, along with my first experience toasting coconut, made this recipe more than just a simple pan of fudgy chocolate whipped up in just of few minutes. It was a labour of love.
Double Layer "Easy Fudge" with Coconut and Coffee [source]
-2 cups dark chocolate chips
-2 cups white chocolate chips
-1 can of sweetened condensed milk
-1+1/2 tbs instant coffee
-2 tsp vanilla extract (the white "coconut"layer calls for coconut extract, but I didn't have any)
-1 tbs coconut oil
-1/2 cup flaked coconut
Now do the same for the white layer. The white chocolate chips can sometimes be hard to find. I had to buy these at the bulk food store.
First melt the chocolate, then stir in the rest of the sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 tbs of coconut oil, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract (use coconut extract if you have any).
