CURRY.

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?

C is for Coffee Hot Fudge Sauce

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! 🙂

C is for Coffee Caramel Bars

IMG_7336

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…

C is for Coffee-Chocolate Mousse

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.

A is for Apple Tarts!

Puff Pastry Apple Tarts

This post is only for “Apple Tarts” but I did do another “A is for Apple” dessert: Apple Tatin! You can find that HERE!

I really LOVE these dessert recipes I found because they are fancy, decadent and delicious! However, they are not super complicated to make, and they don’t require a bunch of ingredients that I will use one time and then never use again.

They both come from Ina Garten and they are her take on French dessert classics.
