If you like dessert with your coffee, you’ll really love what happens when you put coffee in your dessert. Chocolate-based treats in particular seem to get an intense boost of flavor from the merest jolt of java added to the mix. But watch out: Between the sugar and the caffeine, you might be awake for a while.
1. Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake
Reviewers use words like “silky smooth,” “super delicious,” and “decadent” when they describe this 5-star dessert. They also say it’s even better if you let the flavors ripen for a day. As if anyone could possibly wait that long.
2. Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread
Inspired by a popular coffee shop drink, this coffee-infused loaf is topped by a brown sugar glaze that really makes the whole thing work.
3. Mocha Truffles
Harness the power of your microwave to make coffee-laced chocolate truffles. You can adjust the amount of coffee to suit your own taste, and dip the truffles in dark or white chocolate for a sophisticated finish.
4. Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle
Want to impress someone? Spring this multi-layered bowl of gorgeousness on them. (You don’t have to let anyone know how ridiculously easy it is to make.)
5. Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream
Great news: You don’t have to cook an egg custard to make this rich and creamy ice cream. This one has toffee pieces mixed into the batch, which of course sounds amazing. What will you mix into yours?
6. Coffee Liqueur Ice Cream Pie
Not content to put just a little coffee-flavor liqueur in the mix, this mile-high confection nips at the bottle again and again. Be sure to allow plenty of time for chilling the pie as you build it layer by layer.
7. Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
A little bit of instant coffee intensifies the chocolate flavor in these banana muffins, but some reviewers upped the coffee and loved it even more.
8. Extra Caffeinated Brownies
First you boil down coffee into a syrupy-thick concentrate. Then you make brownies out of it. Then you kiss your self-control goodbye.
9. Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
A high-octane version of a classic chocolate chip cookie. Any kind of nuts work in this recipe, but toasted hazelnuts are especially great.
10. Best Mug Cake (Paleo)
This single-serve dessert checks off the quick and easy dessert boxes, but then goes even further by being paleo-friendly.
11. No-Workout-Needed Chocolate Cake
Well, I don’t know if this really delivers on the promise of no workout needed, but the part about it being a chocolate cake is certainly true. Definitely worth a try, but don’t cancel your gym membership.
