Coffee Weekend Ritual
Sehr Lecker! (Very Tasty!) O-h yeah! M-agical coffee! G-erard you beast! This “coffee” (let’s use this term loosely because after all, it’s not really coffee. Although some grounds were involved in the making of this dessert. I mean beverage.
Every weekend we have a ritual. It starts with a hug, a “good morning”, and a curious request for “coffee”. [See also: demand, addiction, sweet tooth, boyfriend points]. This request is usually met with an enduring process that leaves a tummy rumbling, an eager woman pacing, and more than just a coffee pot in action. However this time it ends, to my sugar loving delight, with this decadent masterpiece swirled about my taste buds with a singular goal: seduce them and make them slave to the sweetness. Mission accomplished. Introducing: the German Chocolate Cappuccino.
A cappuccino is traditionally a combination of espresso, steamed milked, and a foamy milk topping. To add to this fun, today’s cappuccino includes four devilishly delightful sauces and syrups that you can opt to buy or make yourself! These include: chocolate, praline (hazelnut), caramel, and coconut. We opted to use a coconut cream we had on hand and make the other three sauces from scratch. The caramel was about one minute short of becoming candies and it was not safe from my tasting spoon.
