An alliterative confection! What’s not to love?
At roughly half the production rate of Brazil, Colombia is the second largest producer of coffee beans in the world. And so, argues Sharon Tyler Herbst, it is only fitting that that elixir of life is amply present in this treat. Of course, so is another elixir of life from tropical places: Dark rum.
Rich with butter, chopped toasted cashews, rum and coffee, these little sweets are about as subtle as a 2-by-4 upside the head. The consensus here is that if we didn’t know any better we’d swear there is ginger in the ingredients list. But there isn’t. They have that bit of a bite to them though, and are warming and good. Perfect antidote to the extra few inches of snow that arrived by degrees over the course of yesterday.
