Ending dinner with a cup of coffee is great. Ending dinner with a dessert that’s flavored with coffee is so much better. Whether you want an easy cookie (to dunk in even more coffee) or a towering layer cake for your next dinner party, here’s how to get your caffeine fix at the end of the day.
Mix it into fudgy chocolate truffles
Because coffee and chocolate are a natural pair.
Make ice cream
This is how you make already-great Vietnamese coffee even better.
Caffeinate your brownies
Instant espresso powder and chocolate-covered espresso beans bring extra punch to classic brownies.
Fold it into a layer cake
For a show-stopping dessert.
Stir it into crumbly Italian cookies
Just pour yourself a little glass of Amaro.
Make it chill out
When you want something refreshing, go granita.
Put the beans on bark
The nutty chocolate bark to eat year-round.
Stir instant espresso into ricotta
For a dessert that feels really fancy (but is super easy).
Mix it with gelatin
Jello jigglers for coffee people, with just four ingredients.
