Recipe Notes

 Another option (instead of using an espresso maker) is to use espresso powder. It is most often used in baking, to enhance the flavor of chocolate. But in a pinch, you could make homemade espresso too.

If you can't find espresso powder just brew some super strong coffee and use that in place of the espresso in this recipe.
