Yes, another “mini” dessert. I just can’t help myself! I love making mini versions of classic desserts (all foods, really)! They are cuter, easier to prepare and pre-portioned, so what’s not to love?!

Yes, another “mini” dessert. I just can’t help myself! I love making mini versions of classic desserts (all foods, really)! They are cuter, easier to prepare and pre-portioned, so what’s not to love?!

I love coffee and I’m always looking for new flavors to try out. I also love pairing desserts to go with an after dinner coffee or to have with my afternoon pick me up! I saw the new McCafé coffee options at Walmart while shopping and I had to try it out! I got the coffee pods in medium premium roast but there is also ground coffee too, so you can make it in any type of coffee machine you have!

There are 8 different flavors and McCafé coffee is made with 100% Arabica Beans. Also, harvested from the rich soils of mountainous regions in the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world!

I found the pods on the top shelf in the coffee and tea aisle and as soon as I got home I had to brew me a cup! lol

The medium premium roast flavor is very good and soothing. It’s a smooth flavor that isn’t harsh and would be great on it’s own. I love adding creamer to my coffee and it paired perfectly!

As soon as I had my afternoon cup of coffee, I got to work on these mini tiramisu because I wanted to have them after dinner with Jeremy. (And for my afternoon snack for the next day, shhh) It is a make ahead recipe, they take at least 4 hours to set up in the fridge so keep that in mind!

I actually love make ahead recipes. You can throw them together the morning of your party or get together and it’s good to go that evening, no stressing over a last minute dessert! You could even make these the day before, easy peasy!

To make the chocolate shavings, just take any chocolate bar and use a peeler on it to get the curls!

I have been loving my little afternoon pick me ups with a mini tiramisu and hot McCafé coffee. I love the contrast of the cold dessert and hot beverage. So satisfying and the perfect way to spend a little me time.

Being a food blogger and working from home can honestly get pretty stressful. It might not seem like it, but working from home, I constantly feel like I should be doing something. I have to force myself to take a break and with this yummy dessert and coffee I don’t have to talk myself into it for too long! hehe
