Wonderful little after dinner treat. I used Espresso to make half the recipe then served in demitasse cups. TFS, my guests enjoyed these.

Great, easy to to make a the dessert makes such a nice presentation. I like it as a dessert, because after cooling time the alcohol is not overpowering the coffee, cinnamon and cloves flavours. I followed the recipe as described here and it worked great. It can easily be made in advance. I have made one too many, kept it in the fridge for one day and on the next day it was just as the day before. Thanks for sharing.
