This is an excellent fudge! I was concerned that the coffee flavor wouldn't come through enough with only 1 tsp. of coffee granules, so I doubled the amount and it was perfect. The extra coffee cut some of the sweetness, as did the large amount of walnuts. Now, I love nuts in fudge, but felt that this recipe had just a few too many...next time I make it, I will use 2/3 or 3/4 cup of walnuts instead of 1 cup. I was concerned that it would be hard to roll the warm fudge mixture into the logs, because it seemed somewhat soft and sticky. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought...after I got it into a rough log shape, I put it on the center of a large piece of plastic wrap, and folded it over the log so that the entire thing was covered, then rolled it up completely, and formed a perfect roll in the process. I think that this recipe could very easily be made in a square pan as well, but the round slices did look nicer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
