A mildly flavored fudge for coffee lovers, topped with chocolate and nuts. Combine sugar, milk, instant coffee, coffee cream and syrup in a 3-quart saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover and place thermometer in pan; cook without stirring to 236 degrees F. Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla without stirring. Cool to lukewarm.
Beat until candy begins to thicken; pour into a buttered 8-inch square pan. Melt the chocolate coating over hot, not boiling water in a double boiler. Spread evenly over fudge, sprinkle nuts over chocolate. Cut into squares before candy becomes firm. Makes about 49 pieces.
