Easy Mocha Fudge
Easy-to-make sweets Perfcet for your Christmas cookie plate and kids will surely love. Enjoy!
Cut a 16-inch-long piece of parchment paper and fold over the edges so it measures 8 inches wide. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with the parchment, seam-side down (the 2 long ends will hang over the edges). Be sure to fit the parchment as smoothly as possible into the dish, snugly creasing it into the corners; set the pan aside.
Place the milk, chocolate, espresso powder, and fine salt in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is smooth, about 15 minutes. Stir in the vanilla.
Immediately pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle evenly with the flaky salt. Place the pan on a wire rack and let it cool at room temperature until the fudge is set, at least 6 hours or overnight.
To remove the fudge from the pan, run a knife along the 2 exposed edges. Grip the parchment hanging over the edges and pull it out of the dish.
Transfer the fudge to a cutting board, remove the parchment, and discard it. Hold a long, sharp knife under hot running water, wipe with a towel, and slice the fudge, repeating heating and wiping the knife after every slice until you have 64 (1-inch) pieces.
The fudge can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
