This Mocha Tahini Fudge puts a unique flavor twist on a classic fudge recipe—coffee+chocolate all drizzled with a bit of tahini!
TAHINI FUDGE. No, MOCHA Tahini Fudge! So trendy! So 2018! I’m on it you guys. Actually if you must know, I’m participating in the #VirtualCoffeeParty2018 with a group of fellow bloggers, so for me, mocha was a given. And if you’re like what the what is that, it’s simply a recipe round up full of coffee recipes for your enjoyment, which I have listed at the end of this post!
And because I know we’d be posting these on a Friday, my brain thought dessert! To be honest, most coffee recipes are either going to be drink or dessert related. Or breakfast, I suppose. ..which are all the perfect kinds of Friday recipes.
I feel like I haven’t talked about my weekend plans in awhile, so this weekend Miguel and I are planning on doing….drumroll…yard work! Aka my actual least favorite chore. And by yard work I quite literally mean just picking up and raking leaves. Maybe digging up a few dead plants…? Nothing major at all, but it absolutely means that we’ll be taking a trip to Home Depot and/or Lowe’s, which can we all agree is an overwhelming experience? I suppose if you go often enough it’s not, but for me, it always is. But, I think it’ll feel good to cross that off our to-do list, especially because Miguel has some work travel coming up, and then we’re going on vacation next month—busy busy!
Hopefully wherever you are, the weather is nice this weekend! If not, there’s always fudge.
Between you and me, this tahini fudge recipe is pretty basic. Not the flavor combination, but the fudge recipe itself. I used the same one that I used for my peanut butter pretzel fudge because I loooove that recipe, but I think this flavor combo is more unique, plus any excuse to use espresso powder and I’m in!
Note: if you can’t find espresso powder, you can 100% use instant coffee! I like the flavor of espresso powder, but it isn’t necessary at all and can be trickier to find. I recommend a dark roast instant coffee if you do go that route.
