Can I use instant coffee instead of expresso?

If you don’t have an espresso maker or are pressed for time, feel free to use instant espresso instead of making a fresh brew. Add 1/2 tsp of powdered instant espresso and 1/2 cup of water to make up for the fresh espresso. Some people like to use milk instead of water with Instant Espresso, so remember, adding extra liquid, other than water can alter the nutritional value.

If you are unable to find instant expresso and still want to use instant coffee, choose a dark roast such as an Italian roast or a french roast coffee.

Melting the chocolate

You can easily melt your unsweetened chocolate chips in the microwave. You can also melt them in a double boiler, but the amount we are using in this recipe is so small, why go to all the trouble?

How to melt chocolate chips in the microwave.

To melt chocolate chips, place them in a small microwaveable bowl and place them in the microwave for 30 seconds at 50 percent power. If the chocolate chips are not melted after 30 seconds, continue with 30-second bursts until almost fully melted. Once the chocolate chips are almost fully melted stir until the rest melt. Do not over microwave the chips as they burn easily. If you microwave them on high power, shorten the bursts to avoid burning.
