I mostly love my coffee alone (espresso) but I am also a great lover of caffè macchiato or café manchado (espresso with just a touch of milk). But when I am in a playful moood *wink I always prepare Café Bombon using this totally MEAN recipe. This recipe is not for the faint-hearted and not even for those who aren’t best friends with calories. Have I told you calories is my mmiddle name? ^^)
Prepare your espresso. I love Colombian coffee for this!
A clear glass is best for this coffee as the layers are best appreciated. So get that shot glass, yes! that vodka glass! (I didn’t have any shot glass on hand. I was sure we had one or two but I couldn’t find it : (
Pour a generous amount of sweetened condensed milk…
With the help of a spoon, pour that yummy goodness of espresso into the glass.
Got to love that crema! I love my colombian coffee! With its heady aroma, rich flavor and body without the acidity, it’s an experience!
If you want to bring your Café Bombon into a different level, add a teaspoon or two of Bailey’s Irish cream. Top that with some whipped cream or frothed milk if you don’t want the extra fat ^^) You can then sprinkle cocoa powder or shaved chocolate on top of the whipped cream or frothed milk!
Sinful, I know! But believe me. It’s worth it!
I hope you liked this recipe. Enjoy!
