Dinner is finished and everyone is sitting at the table, laughing, chatting and you bring in a fabulous dessert. To complement this rich dessert you need a very special coffee.
Perhaps you are a bachelor and want to impress that sweet young thing you just impressed with your culinary skills or ladies…you want to impress that good lookin’ gent across the table or….just want to finish the evening with a spectacular flair. Go for it…this will do it for you.
- 1 tbsp. grated chocolate
- 2 shots brewed espresso (1 1/4 oz. each one)
- 1/4 cup whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- dash of pure vanilla extract
- 2 dashes of white chocolate liqueur (you know what you think is a dash)
Spoon one half of the grated chocolate in the bottom of your 8 oz. serving glass (fancy, heat proof if you have them) or a mug.**
Pour the espresso over the chocolate and stir. Add the sugar and vanilla to the cream while whipping. Add the dash of liqueur and top with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Finish with a sprinkle of grated chocolate.
**You don’t have to add the liqueur if you don’t want it. If you really want to impress, put the mug on a small tray, place a pretty napkin on it, add a long stemmed rose. Am I a romantic or not…..
Now, is this good or what? More than that…it is YUMMY!
