O...M...G...!!! These are so awesome, if you love coffee! Made these for a 'girls night' and paired so very well with red wine! I only used 1/3 cup sugar - plenty. I also did not have instant espresso, but what I did have was free samples of Taster's Choice Instant coffee singles - I used the Vanilla. The girls want to pay me to keep making these!

Absolutely wonderful! I love walnuts and the addition of the espresso beans and espresso powder takes them over the top. So easy to make -- this will definitely be on my list of go-to recipes. The only problem is -- I'm not sharing! Well, maybe my DH can have a few if he's a good boy and does his honey-do's!!!! Made for the 1-2-3 tag, May, 2012.

I made this more of a mocha espresso with the use of cocoa powder instead of espresso, but it was so yummy! This became my favorite of the three varieties I made.
