With National Coffee Day on the horizon it is time to pay homage to our favorite beverage in dessert form. We all love coffee in the morning, sometimes we even cook with whatever is leftover in the pot, but what about dessert? Seriously, coffee can add some awesome flavor to dessert. Adding it to chocolate makes mocha, regular coffee can be used to flavor ladyfingers, and even something simple like espresso poured over vanilla ice cream becomes a treat. Here are seven delicious coffee desserts that are perfect for celebrating National Coffee Day!
