This Coffee syrup is dark, rich and smooth.

An easy syrup that can be made in a jiffy and will add a kick start to any dessert.

It can also flavor and sweeten your beverage.

Step 1: Ingredients

You'll need:

1/3 cup espresso or strong coffee
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup Almond Milk Vanilla creamer or any liquid coffee creamer

Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepot. Bring to a boil.

This will take 8-10 min on high. If you have a candy thermometer; 325F
This can be stored at room temp until needed

or it can be refrigerated for 1 week.

Step 2: Tartufo

Tartufo: resembles a truffle/fungus/tuber found in the ground

I can't leave this recipe without showing you how easy it is to make this classic Italian dessert.

Pick any ice-cream you like.

Scoop out a messy, not perfect scoop.

You can add a maraschino cherry in the center or wrap chocolate ice-cream around vanilla or lighter ice-cream.

Freeze to harden.

Roll in cocoa powder or granola for the crunch.

Pour syrup on plate, place Tartufo on syrup.

Add berries if you'd like.

Enjoy with love!
