I decided to use my Godiva coffee for baking! I’m not a coffee lover, but it is great in baked goods. I plan on baking with the Chocolate Truffle as well. That demands something chocolatey. This go around I decided to use the French Vanilla. I pieced together a recipe to suit my needs. It tastes very strongly of the coffee, which is a great thing for coffee lovers!
