Afternoon Coffee & …

Coffee is my favorite drink and I have several cups a day. I don’t think I’m making it right because it certainly doesn’t perk me up but it does taste good.

Around 2 o’clock in the afternoon I become extremely tired. Ready for a nap tired. Naturally I navigate to the coffee maker for a mug of my favorite beverage.

I also get a little hungry around that time of day and like a little something to snack on. I really enjoy baked goods. A LOT. Chocolate croissants, cupcakes, muffins, scones, apple pastries or strudel. Recently I learned of a new-to-me treat just made for coffee, called a stroopwafel. Evidently they have been around forever and so I am one of the last people on planet Earth to learn of these, but they were worth the wait!

Crispy cookies filled with caramel and coated in chocolate. You set it on top of your hot cup of coffee and it warms the cookie, making it a bit soft and gooey. A great addition to your coffee routine!
