Chocolate and Espresso, A Match Made in Food Heaven
POSTED February 12, 2020
If we’re lucky in life, we find the thing that completes us. It’s romantic to think about, isn’t it? We imagine that’s how chocolate must feel about its complementary companion, espresso.
On Valentine’s Day, we’re taking time to celebrate one of our favorite couples: chocolate and espresso. There’s something about the combination of smooth, sweet chocolate and deep, dark espresso that we can’t get enough of. Think: Tiramisu or any mocha-style beverage. We love it so much, we came up with an easier way to use espresso in the kitchen, DeLallo Instant Espresso Powder—in case you don’t have an espresso machine at home. You just stir it in hot water to create a deep, full-bodied espresso perfect for baking. Speaking of baking…
If you’re looking for some incredible Valentine’s Day dessert recipes, this decadent and complex duo will have any sweetheart swooning. We thought we’d share some of our favorites with you.
These silky smooth, super rich, melt-in-your-mouth truffles are practically magical. Whether you’re wooing your sweetheart or treating your family, this chocolatey-espresso truffle recipe is one you’ll be making again and again.
You’re not dreaming… this fudgy chocolate masterpiece is real! Espresso takes this classic chocolate pie to the next level… along with a fluffy homemade whipped cream and bits of bittersweet chocolate on top.
