By a raise of hand, how many people have ever felt like they needed a second job to support their coffee habit? Whew! I’m so glad I’m not the only one! Yes, I can see you. 😉 I’ve cut way back on my trips to Starbucks; partly due to the cost and partly due to the fact that when I need coffee, I need it now, not in the 20 minutes it takes to get through the line to give my order (so actually 25 minutes total. Yeah, waaaay too long). I was so excited to see that International Delight has now come out with an iced coffee (which you can find in the fridge juice section at Walmart)… they even have Caramel Macchiato, one of my coffee house faves!
I love my coffee so much that I like to come up with recipes that give me reasons to enjoy it in other ways besides just drinking it. Naturally I also enjoy a nice coffee liqueur from time to time. When I first tasted the Caramel Macchiato iced coffee I knew right away it needed to be made into a dessert. I wasn’t wrong. Caramel Macchiato: goood! Fudge: goood! Liqueur: goood! Trifle: gooood!! This grown up dessert is like a flavor explosion of goodness with every bite! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
