Many of us can’t make it through the day without a cup of coffee… or three. What once may have started out as an innocent flirtation with the robust, earthy, caffeinated beverage has now turned into an all-out obsession. Maybe you are a high-roller who stops by your favorite coffee shop every day to get a half-caf vanilla latte with almond milk, or maybe you’ve perfected your at-home coffee routine, but either way, there’s no denying we all need our morning fix. What could be better than taking your favorite beverage and incorporating it into a dessert? Let’s take a look at 5 desserts every coffee lover will drool over.
Reese’s Coffee Poke Cake
While Reese’s peanut butter cups and coffee may not seem like the most obvious combination for a dessert, we promise you that flavor-wise it makes a lot of sense. The espresso powder brings out the chocolate flavor so it’s deeper and richer and the peanut butter contrasts beautifully with its creamy and salty nature. The three flavors play together so nicely. And poke cakes are all about layered flavor, so this Reese’s Coffee Poke Cake is a dream come true. Get the recipe here!
