Coffee…pretty much drink this stuff every morning…and then into the afternoon. With the start of this week, I didn’t really have an idea of what to do with coffee, besides brew it and drink it. Asking around, I actually got a lot of ideas from all my friends. Ranging from steak crusted steaks to a coffee infused rum cake. Somewhere along the way, I decided on trying a tiramisu. However, that changed again when Steve said, “Why don’t you put some chocolate-coffee thing inside a taco?” So I of course replied, “You mean a choco taco?” Sooooo….I landed on a coffee ice cream choco-taco!
Lucky for me, I have an ice cream machine acquired from a friend, so this was all very possible. After doing a little research, I landed on these two recipes: coffee ice cream and choco taco. I started with getting the ice cream made last night and so it would be ready for the tacos today.
The aroma alone from this was amazing. I love the smell of coffee.
When the ice cream was ready (btw, so good!), I had to try not to eat any so I could stuff them into homemade taco shells (waffle shells without the waffle lines). The site had a nice little tip on making the shells. You put them on book binders to get the shape! Genius!
We thought these would be the best books to use. =p
Shells chilling in the freezer.
Once the shells are ready, you paint them with some chocolate to create a chocolate shell. Then back into the freezer for a little while.
When everything was ready, you combine everything, and let them freeze again. Then enjoy!
