    Here is the last recipe in my "series." I hope everyone found something they liked!

    Demitasse Sweets (or Coffee Fudge)

    3 cups sugar
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup light cream
    2 Tbsp. instant coffee
    1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
    dash of salt
    3 Tbsp. butter
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 cup semi-sweet choc. chips
    1/2 cup broken pecans

    Butter sides of heavy 3-qt. saucepan. In it combine sugar, milk, light cream, instant coffee, corn syrup and salt. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, till sugar is all dissolved and mixture comes to boiling. Ten cook to 234 degrees, stirring only if necessary. Immediately remove from heat; add butter and cool to lukewarm (110 degrees) WITHOUT stirring. Add vanilla. Beat birorously til fudge becomes very thick and starts to lose its glass. At that moment, stir in choc. chips and pecans. Quickly spread in a buttered shallow pan or small platter. Score in quears while warm, and if desired, top each with a pecan half. Cut when firm. Store in airtight container. This is delightful with after-dinner coffee.

    THE END!
