I’ve been meaning to share these Cinnamon Rolls for a long time now. I can’t wait any longer!!!
My Favorite Recipes for Fall…
Two things happened this past week that nearly knocked me over, gave me great relief, and renewed my excitement for this little blog of mine.
What were those things you ask?
Yes, I know that Christmas Day is over, but I thought I would share one last “C is for Coffee” recipe that you can use for homemade Christmas presents next year. You could make a single recipe for just your family, make a double batch to share with your neighbors, or make a lot of batches to use as favors for a party.
I made a single recipe (an espresso batch). Then I made THREE more doubled recipes (only one batch with espresso). I ended up with 16 (16 oz) jars total. By not filling the jars up quite all the way I was able to fill two extra jars from all my batches! WORTH IT! 🙂
I think this was my favorite of all the desserts. The chocolate mousse was a close second… but this took the cake! (or… it ‘took the brownie’ I guess) 🙂
You start with your favorite brownie boxed mix (I used Duncan Hines) so that simplifies these A LOT! Then you just add in some special ingredients to make them feel more homemade and nothing like something you could make from a box. I think the glaze you put on top has a lot to do with this!
Let’s jump right in! Here’s a photo to get you excited:
I went WAY overboard on my Coffee recipes but it’s one of my favorite ingredients so I figured… why not?
I have two more recipes to post but they are WORTH IT! I may actually have 3 more recipes… but with Christmas just around the corner I’m making no promises (sigh).
Our “D” ingredient will come after Christmas and will be fast and furious and FUN! It will be all my own recipes so it should be interesting… stay tuned!
Okay, back to C is for Coffee…

The coffee beans come from a new Arizona roasting house:
Sagebrush Coffee http://www.sagebrushcoffee.com/
Sagebrush Coffee is a gourmet coffee roasting house. They select top-quality coffee beans from all around the world. Their roasting process is unlike most roasting houses in that they roast in micro batches, pulling the best flavor possible from the beans. They are offering free-shipping through the end of the year, too!

This is another SUPER simple dessert that you can make ahead! It can be made casual or elegant. Just use the appropriate style of cups or glasses to go with your occasion. The mousse will taste just as good in a paper cup but it will look even more inviting if you dress it up a bit. I think I might even top mine with chocolate shavings or curls next time I serve them! Again, not necessary, but pleasing to the eyes.
