You don’t have to worry about putting on a pot of coffee after dinner when you use these recipes. Make coffee part of your dessert for a delicious treat with just a touch of caffeine.
Coffee & Whipped Cream Brownies
A bit of instant coffee and some heavy whipping cream can spruce up regular brownies. Give this recipe a try for creamy brownies with a caffeine kick. To make this, you’ll need to gather the following ingredients:
- 3 oz chopped unsweetened chocolate
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1 tsp instant coffee
- 3 tbsps heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsps softened butter
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Start making this tasty brownie recipe by melting the unsweetened chocolate and butter in the microwave. Stir the chocolate and butter, and let this mixture cool a little. Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar in a small bowl, then add the chocolate mixture. Add flour and baking soda to the mixture, then stir. Grease an 8-inch baking pan, and add the brownie mix. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees, then remove the pan from the oven and let it cool.
To make the coffee and cream layer, add the coffee to the heavy whipping cream. Let the coffee dissolve, then add the butter and confectioners’ sugar. Beat this mixture until it’s light, then spread it over the brownies. Place the brownies in the fridge until the coffee and cream layer sets.
To make glaze for your brownies, cook the chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream in a small pot on low heat. Let the melted chocolate mix cool, then spread it over the coffee and cream layer on the brownies. Let the glaze set for about 30 minutes before cutting and serving the brownies.
Coffee Ice Cream Cheesecake Pie
When you can’t decide between ice cream and cheesecake, combine both with this simple recipe. All you need to make it are the following ingredients:
- 2 8-oz packages of softened cream cheese
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 pint of softened coffee ice cream
- 1 pre-packaged graham cracker pie crust
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
To make this recipe, beat the softened cream cheese with an electric mixer until it’s smooth. Add the milk, vanilla and sugar to the cream cheese, then beat until it’s creamy. Add the softened ice cream to this mix, then beat until it has a smooth texture. Add this ice cream and cream cheese mix to the graham cracker pie crust, then place in the freezer for up to 4 hours. Once the pie is firm, it will be ready to eat. Melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan on the stove or in the microwave, then pour the chocolate mix onto the pie before serving.
