Dumante Frozen Espresso Creams From Seduction in the KitchenWorking  in the medical field, there is one thing you never say no matter what, that is, it a good day or a bad day. If you say that, you have cursed yourself and the next shift by having everything go wrong.  So years ago I came up with a saying: “It’s a margarita day” when someone asked how the day went. If I said that then they knew it was one hell of a day.

Why do I say, “It is a margarita day” for a bad day at the hospital? Well it means  I am going home and having a drink. My drink I love more anything at that time, this was before I discovered wine, that is, was a margarita. As I got older, I still love margaritas, but now it more a glass of wine is my relaxing drink I will have now, but the saying has stuck. However if I say, “forget the margarita, I am having straight tequila!” then we all know all hell is breaking loose, this is usually when the full moon is around when that happens.

So why am I talking about margaritas and drinking? Well it because of the theme this week for  Sunday Supper. It is

This is such a fun theme this week. Let’s be honest we, as adults do like alcohol, we not only drink it but we do cook and bake with it as well. This being the Holiday Season, we do indulge in it from after dinner cordial to rum soaked fruit cake.Plus as I said earlier, it is nice to relax and unwind with a drink too, especially after your fighting store crowds to get gifts for people. We just simply have a love affair with libational recipes.

What recipe have I whipped up for this fun theme? I am in the middle of making cookies and candies for the holidays, so I came up with an indulgent little treat. Dumante is the only liquor that is a clear espresso spirit. Why would that matter? Well when your working with white, like white chocolate and whipping cream, it won’t discolor the white.  It helps keep it white. It is a little trick I learned a long time ago when I was big into making cakes. Cake bakers and bakeries use a clear vanilla for buttercreams. The dark vanilla will tint the white. This the same thing, a clear espresso liquor keeps the white a true white.

This is a very simply recipe, normally I would have garnished with a chocolate covered espresso bean, but the store was out of them. Yes they do sell those, in college, we chow down on them to stay awake for studying, this was pre Starbucks and those energy drinks. Yes, I know I am dating myself, but hey, it was those days got me loving chocolate covered espresso beans. I am off subject I know. Anyway, the store was out of them so a little chocolate chip makes for cute garnish on this little delight.

As you can see from these photos I took as I was making this creamy little piece of heaven:

#SundaySupper Dumante Frozen Espresso Creams

Serves 8 people     adjust servings

An espresso liquor that is in a creamy frozen dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup Dumante espresso liquor
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips 12oz
  • cups mini baking
  • chocolate covered espresso beans or chocolate chips for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a chilled metal bowl, add the whipping cream and the espresso liquor. Beat the two together till you get stiff peaks, and then set aside.
  2. Next melt the white chocolate. I like to bring a pot of water to boil, turn the heat off and then put a metal bowl with the chocolate on top of it. Stir until the chocolate is all melted and smooth.
  3. After the chocolate is melted, fold the whipping cream mixture into the white chocolate. Make sure all mixed in well.
  4. Line a small cookie sheet with the mini baking cups and spoon the creamy mixture into the the baking cups. Top each of the creams with the espresso bean or chocolate chip.
  5. Place the tray into the freezer and let set up in the freezer for about 1-2 hours.
  6. Take them out, serve them up and ENJOY!
