I think we are all familiar with those popular coffee drinks out there. I love coffee. I love a good latte….steamed milk and good strong espresso. I love those caramel machiatto drinks too!!! Oh, yes I do! So, a friend of mine came over the other night and since she loves coffee too, I thought I would make her a nice little coffee treat…..coffee pudding. Not just coffee pudding, but coffee pudding with whip cream and crunchy little bits of caramel on top. Yes, crunchy caramel, like the kind you find on crème brulee. OMG, right? It’s creamy, not too sweet and it’s not a real heavy dessert. Now, I use espresso powder in this recipe, but you can use instant coffee. That works too. Mm-m-m-mmmm. This dessert is really pretty served in a nice little
coffee cup. Yep, sure is.
2 cups of milk or half and half
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons of instant coffee or espresso powder
