Murri's Blue Ribbon Kicked Up Cowgirl Fudge

I know I know.  That title is a mouthful.  As complicated as it sounds, it's a very simple recipe.  My Little Devil, entered this fudge in a contest at a chocolate festival several years ago and won a blue ribbon!  Sure fudge can be fudge, but when you coat it in a spicy mixture of cinnamon, sugar, coffee, chile powder and cayenne you get KICKED UP fudge.

It's a winner! 
A genuine blue ribbon winner!
