As for what to cook this Valentine’s Day, a little creativity goes a long way. If looking to bring coffee into your Valentines Day ideas, you’ll find (literally) thousands of weird and wonderful recipes online. Though of all the treats you can prepare for a romantic evening, the five below are our personal favorites:
This is more or less your traditional souffle recipe, though spiked with a couple of decent spoons of quality instant coffee. The result is a bittersweet mocha-spiked dessert that’s no less than heavenly – particularly when accompanied with a rich dollop of vanilla ice cream.
Whip up a batch of cold brew and use it as the basis for as many creative cocktails as you like. Simply perked up with a shot of vodka and with a splash of cream added, you’ve a gorgeous aperitif to serve on ice.
Or for that matter, any other lump of high-quality meat you intend to cook up this Valentine’s Day. There are endless recipes available for sweet, spicy and often smoky dry rubs where coffee is the star or the show. Just be sure to choose the right rub for the right type of meat – the rest is pretty much fool-proof.
Don’t use the fact that you don’t have an ice cream maker as an excuse for not making your own ice cream. It’s quick, easy and you get to experiment to your heart’s content with your favorite ingredients. Use high-quality coffee as the main flavor in your homemade ice cream and take it from there.
