Cappuccino squares

Maraschino cherry Is good to be backing home. I love going out, but there is nothing better than to return to home and sleep in our cribs, be on the couch and use our own kitchens. Our houses are always a comforting place and if we have a certain routine provides a great safety. As always, and this time was no exception, I brought my suitcase full of things coffee, spices and some chocolate. As a friend came to visited me to share a cup of coffee , I decided to use these ingredients to make some chocolate bars with a creamy cappuccino topping It have been very light and if there is no great contrast of textures, there is a very good balance of both flavors and texture . Capuccino squares
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe of your favorite chocolate sponge cake or use this genoise recipe replacing almonds for 2 tablespoons of unsweetened powered chocolate.
For the capuccino topping
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ Tsp instant coffee on two tsp boiled water
  • ¼ Tsp powered cinnamon
  • 3 cups whipped cream
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan stir and simmer until boil and off the bottom of the pan. It must be a little bit thick. Allow to cool Beat the cream until thick Mix the chocolate cream gently with the whipped cream. Spread the mix on the génoise evenly and let cool for an hour into the fridge Cut in squares using a hot knife and garnish with whole cherries
