Coffee Icing

Coffee Icing is a delicious coffee flavored icing that is perfect to drizzle over scones, muffins, cake or any sweet treat that needs a subtle coffee flavor.
For an added bonus, top each scone with chopped chocolate, covered espresso beans. Many people say that they don’t like coffee flavored anything but rest assured you will like these, the coffee flavor is light and subtle, adding that touch of coffee flavor.

Chocolate Covered Beans

This recipe calls for chopped chocolate covered espresso beans. I listed them as optional but I highly recommend adding them. You only need a few sprinkled on the top of each scone to add a nice chocolaty, coffee crunch. We purchased the chocolate covered espresso beans used in this recipe at Trader Joe’s.
