My wife and I went for a long hike in the woods on a below 40 degree day in the Pacific Northwest. We were cold when we got home. Before I shed my coat and scarf I began a pot of hot cocoa. Just after pouring the hot cocoa into mugs on the spur of the moment I added 1.5 oz Veil Double Espresso Vodka and whipped cream. I handed a mug to my wife confessing that I had been playing with ingredients again. She took a dubious sip. Oh nice! she exclaimed, adding; You can play with ingredients anytime especially when there's alcohol involved. Since she liked the drink so much and I enjoyed the bold contrast of the hot liquid with my cold-from-the-hike self I kept the recipe - and drew it here using vigorous lines and contrasting colors in an attempt to capture my feelings.
My brother in law makes this cake for almost every family gathering, and I will cheat on any diet for it! The cake is a delicious, moist chocolate made with strong coffee, and cream cheese makes the peanut butter frosting extra rich. I made two of these cakes this year for my daughter's birthday. She loves it just as much as I do!
I came up with this ice pop recipe when I visited Hanoi. I had so many cups of vietnamese coffee which was ubiquitous in the city. Their coffee comes with rich condesed milk. As the milk is so thick, the coffee and the milk separate out completely in a glass. I love the perfect two-tone colour. So beautiful!
