EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Espresso is full-flavored coffee produced by forcing steam or hot water through finely ground dark-roasted coffee beans.

Look for chocolate cookie crumbs in the grocery store baking aisle.

Instead of chocolate cookie crumbs, crush chocolate wafers. Place chocolate wafers in a resealable plastic food storage bag and press it with a rolling pin.

Use instant coffee granules in place of the instant espresso coffee powder.
