Coffee has become a part of our daily lives. Whether it’s a morning pick-me-up or a mid-afternoon boost, coffee is everywhere. And now, thanks to the invention of the espresso machine, it’s easier than ever to get a great cup of Joe.

Coffee Desserts

But sometimes, even the greatest inventions aren’t perfect. That’s why we created this collection of 16 creative coffee desserts.

These sweet treats are sure to satisfy your cravings and give you something extra special to look forward to after drinking your favorite beverage.

1. Chocolate Coffee Truffle

Chocolate and coffee are two of our favorite flavor combinations. This simple recipe takes advantage of those two flavors by combining them into one delicious treat.

You can make these truffles ahead of time and store them in the fridge for up to three days. They’re great served cold, straight out of the freezer.

This recipe is inspired by our love affair with both chocolate and coffee. We wanted to combine those two flavors into one delicious treat.

This recipe takes advantage of the amazing combination of dark chocolate and espresso powder. You won’t believe how good it tastes.

2. Coffee Waffles

Oz Coffee Waffles are a great way to start your morning. They’re sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth while being savory enough to keep you full throughout the day.

This recipe uses ground hazelnuts, which add a nutty flavor to the batter. If you don’t like hazelnuts, feel free to use walnut halves instead. You could even try adding some chocolate chips to make this dish extra special.

3. Coffee Cupcakes

Soft and spongy eggless cupcakes with a coffee punch are here! These bite-sized treats are perfect for breakfast, dessert, or even afternoon tea. They are super easy to make, and you don’t have to worry about eggs because there aren’t any!

You’ll love how soft and fluffy they are without being heavy like regular cakes. All you need is butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, and instant coffee granules. This recipe makes 12 small cupcakes.

4. Espresso Martini

The Kahlua Espresso Martini is one of the most popular drinks among bartenders. This cocktail combines the flavors of coffee and liqueur into a smooth drink.

This cocktail combines two ingredients that are very common in Italy: espresso and vodka. However, it is not just a simple combination; there is much more to this drink than meets the eye.

Espresso martinis are usually served chilled, but you can make them hot too. You can add milk, cream, Kahlua, or even coffee liqueur to this classic cocktail.

5. Tiramisu

Tiramisu is an Italian dessert consisting of pieces of sponge cake soaked in espresso or hot milk, topped with a layer of sweetened mascarpone cream. The cake is usually served in small glasses or cups and often garnished with chocolate shavings.

6. Coffee Walnut Cake

This coffee cake loaded with walnut pieces is just what you need for a quick pick-me-up during those long days at work.

You’ll find yourself reaching for the fork and knife again and again because there are no crumbs left once you’ve finished eating. This recipe uses whole wheat flour and ground almonds, making it high in fiber and low in saturated fat.

7. Affogato

Affogato is one of our favorite desserts because it combines two things we love: chocolate and espresso. This simple dessert is easy to make and requires just three ingredients: Ice Cream, Chocolate Sauce, and Coffee.

You don’t even need a blender; simply combine everything together in a bowl and serve immediately.

Affogato is one of those desserts that sounds like something out of a science fiction movie.

In fact, it’s based on a real Italian tradition, where people enjoy hot espresso over vanilla ice cream. So how do you make this classic combination? Well, here’s what you need to know.

8. Mocha Chocolate Mousse

Coffee and chocolate are a match, made in heaven. So why not combine them into one delicious dessert?

This chocolate mocha moose is rich, velvety, and packed with flavor. With just three ingredients, you’ll be making this delectable treat any day now.

Our version of this classic pairing is even better because it includes espresso powder—which adds depth of flavor and aroma. 

And since our mousse is already loaded with cocoa butter, there’s no need to add additional fat. So go ahead and indulge in three reasons to love this decadent treat.

9. Espresso Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate chip cookie dough is one of our favorite things ever, especially when you add some coffee to it. But we want to make sure you don’t just eat those cookies straight out of the oven—we’re talking about adding flavors here.

And since there’s no way you’ll stop eating these cookies once you’ve tried them, why not try something different? Enter: the espresso chocolate chip cookie.

These are basically regular chocolate chip cookies, except that they’re flavored with espresso powder. 

10. Espresso Brownies

These brownies are everything you could ever want in a dessert. They’re incredibly rich and gooey. The secret ingredient? Added espresso powder! 

You’ll never believe how simple it is to make these amazing treats. This recipe makes about 16 small squares, perfect for a snack or dessert.

Espresso is one of those things we love because it makes us feel like we’re living out our favorite movie scenes. But did you know it actually adds flavor to food? This brownie recipe uses coffee beans to add a kick to your desserts. 

11. Coffee Toffee Cheesecake

This cheesecake isn’t just rich; it’s downright sinful.

With a sweet buttery crust made from chocolate wafer cookies, and a creamy chocolate-coffee-chocolate cream cheese filling, topped off with a crunchy toasted Heath bar crumble, you’ll be licking the plate clean.

And don’t forget about the sprinkling of powdered sugar on top.

12. Cinnamon Coffee Churros

Churros are fried dough tubes covered in cinnamon sugar and served warm. But what happens when you dip them in a thick, creamy coffee chocolate sauce? You get something even better.

This recipe is simple enough to make at home, and it’ll take less than 30 minutes to complete. If you’ve never tried churros before, now’s the perfect time to give them a go.

13. Cappuccino Cinnamon Rolls

They say you should never judge a book by its cover…but sometimes, you just know what you’re getting into. Take these cinnamon rolls, for example; they look like something straight out of Pinterest, but they are anything but boring.

These cinnamon roll cups are filled with a warm, fluffy dough that gets topped off with a rich coffee frosting and some sprinkles. They’re perfect for breakfast or dessert – either way, you’ll want to try ’em!

14. Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

Want to make your very own homemade ice cream? Here’s how to do it. This coffee ice cream is incredibly thick, rich, and creamy. You won’t believe it tastes like ice cream! It’s almost too good to eat.

If you want this recipe to taste better, use regular coffee beans, not decaf! Regular coffee beans are much stronger than decaf, so you’ll need fewer ground beans. You can also add chocolate chips, nuts, or even sprinkles to give it extra flavor.

15. Brownie Mocha Trifle

This brownie mocha chocolate trifle is perfect for dessert parties, holidays, birthdays, and even bridal showers. You don’t need to be a master chef to whip up a batch of this decadent treat.

All it takes are some basic ingredients like instant pudding and brownie mixes, whipped cream, and mini marshmallows.

16. Irish Coffee

A cocktail made of hot coffee, whiskey, and sugar topped with thickened whipped cream! Irish coffee is a classic cocktail consisting of espresso poured into a glass filled with boiling milk and sweetened with a dash of sugar.

It’s served cold and garnished with a dollop of heavy whipping cream. This holiday season, we’re taking it one step further by adding some extra flavor to our Irish coffee recipe.
