Hey everyone – long time, no eats! It’s been a while since my last recipe but you’re all in for a treat. I’m developing a new recipe series called Express Eats that are designed to take literally 1 minute or less. The idea is based on the fact that not everyone has the time (or desire) to make a fancy 3-course dinner or a rockin’ bowl of oatmeal every morning. So I’ve come up with a few super quick recipes to add a little spice to your day. This can be anything from a quick and innovative snack to a twist on an morning staple (like this coffee recipe). But I need some feedback. What do you think – is this series a good idea or not? And do you like the title “Express Eats” or can you think of something better? Other names I was contemplating: 60-Second Eats, Minute to Make it, Done in 60 Seconds. Suggestions?
*Note: If you don’t have these syrups, simply substitute 1 tsp sugar + 2 tsp water for a Dark Chocolate Truffle Coffee.
1. Place the cocoa powder in the bottom of a mug and add the syrup (or sugar and water). Mix with a spoon until a paste is formed, adding a few drops of coffee, as needed, to help form the paste. Don’t add too much liquid at this stage or it will be difficult to dissolve the cocoa. The resulting paste should be silky smooth like the center of a chocolate truffle. It should look like this:
2. Pour in the coffee and add milk powder (I use about 2T) or regular milk to thicken. Stir with a spoon until the paste has dissolved into the coffee and enjoy! You may need to stir every few sips to prevent the chocolate from settling but it’s well worth it for this rich chocolately mug of coffee!
I like the idea of this recipe series but I want to hear from all of you. Let me know what you think below or shoot me an email: Nick @ PeanutButterBoy . Com
