All in all, what you put inside your body, whether as a food or beverage, is a personal choice. As with any item, moderation is the best gamble. Have questions? Research by reading, asking others about their experiences, and, perhaps, do some experimenting of your own. What can happen? You will definitely find out what suits you, amount and taste wise, the best. Like I said, personal choice. I drink coffee and tea, hot and cold; I eat chocolate, but you won’t ever find me spitting tobacco juice on a clean floor. Personal choice.
…and for those wanting a recipe containing coffee and chocolate, I did not forget about you.
These cookies can be made with espresso, a flavored coffee made strong, or Kahlua (the alcohol will bake off, and just leave the coffee flavor).
½ cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
5 Tbsp. coffee or Kahlua
2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
¾ tsp. baking powder
Hershey chocolate kisses
Preheat oven to 375F. Use nonstick baking sheets, or spray with nonstick baking spray (contains flour).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth; add eggs one at a time, then the coffee; mix until smooth and creamy.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa and baking powder; add to the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly.
Use a teaspoon to place mixture onto cookie sheets; bake for 10 minutes. While still hot, insert a chocolate kiss into center of each cookie. Let cool.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
