Top 5 Coffee Snacks
I’ve had snacks that went so well with coffee, I’m sure they were made to be together. Taking that time to really savour a good cup of coffee and a snack is essential if you ask me, everyone needs to take that moment.
We recently asked on our Facebook page what your favourite snacks were and we got a few great answers. Some I have not tried, others I have regularly. We got responses from peach cobbler to ginger cookies to pumpkin pecan pie. Here are my top 5 snacks to have with coffee, let me know if I forgot something, I’d hate to be missing out on a great pairing.
The taste of the dark cocoa blending in with the rich coffee flavours really has you savouring each bite. Sometimes I like to drop a small piece of chocolate right into my hot coffee. It melts a bit and really gives you a special dark chocolate tasting coffee.
An Italian biscotti dips so well in a nice cup of coffee! A biscotti is a double baked cake so it becomes hard and perfect for dipping into your coffee. A fresh biscotti paired with a nice dark coffee is one of my favourite things to savour.
Cookies are a popular snack all over the world when it comes to pairing it with coffee. I personally love when I let a chocolate chip cookie sit a little too long in my coffee and the chips fall in. I also love letting the cookie sit on the rim of the hot coffee for a few minutes. The heat of the coffee melts the cookie just a little.
Having cheesecake with a coffee is a rich treat. A nice cheesecake can really add an enjoyable contrast with a cup of coffee. There’s something magical about the cool, fruity and rich cheese taste paired with coffee. It just melts in your mouth. I don’t think I’ve ever passed up on a cheesecake-and-coffee opportunity.
A good Tiramisu is addictive! I can personally eat an entire cake to myself. Why not have a fresh cup of coffee or an espresso to go with your coffee soaked cake! It might have you bouncing off the walls, but that’s the fun part. (Try our Van Houtte Tiramisu recipe !)
