If you have been around awhile you have come to know (and hopefully love) our Monday K-cup coffee recipes. I love fun, easy to make coffee drinks. They are a simple indulgence that can usually be made with ingredients already in your kitchen. There will be no running to the local coffee shop around here, no sir, we have Keurig’s in our kitchen that make these recipes easy peasy.
Up this week…Black Forest Coffee.
Cherries and coffee?! I will admit, that does not sound like a match made in heaven but, toss in a little dark chocolate and homemade whipped cream and now you have my interest.
You will need:
1 extra bold Kcup coffee (I chose Newman’s Own Special Blend).
1 T cocoa powder
1/8 cup room temperature maraschino cherry juice
whipped cream (preferably homemade, I used this recipe)
dark chocolate shavings
-Start by brewing your extra bold Kcup coffee on the lowest water setting of your brewer. This is essential for this recipe. You need that rich, dark coffee flavor to combine perfectly with the chocolate and cherry.
-Add the cocoa powder and stir until dissolved.
-Add the maraschino cherry juice. At this point I popped mine in the microwave for 20 seconds simply because I was worried that the cherry juice would leave me with luke warm coffee.
-Top with plenty of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
The combination of flavors in this little number will make you taste buds sing! This is THE perfect dessert coffee. And I do not mean to be served with dessert, it IS the dessert!
