A table cleared, crumbs masterfully swept off the tablecloth, wine glasses with the last remaining sips left to offer. Waistbands a smidgen tighter, flavors lingering on tastebuds, and hearts content with a delicious meal. It’s about this time in the tempo of a meal that I love most – when something sweet beckons, and you must decide: would you like coffee with your dessert?

I am often tempted to savor an after dinner cup of strong coffee, but usually turn it down – going decaf to avoid staying awake all night seems pointless to me. So when I do get to enjoy coffee with dessert, it truly is an indulgence, and I reserve it for the most special of occasions.

But here’s the thing: I’m at a point now where I want to make every day a special occasion. I want to embrace each day, each meal, each bite, as if it were my last. Life is sweeter that way, don’t you think?

If I could, I would end every meal with this Caramel Corn Affogato. A scoop (or two!) of vanilla flecked ice cream, drowned in strong espresso, with a shot of Kahlua, and topped with crunchy caramel corn – it sounds divine, and please let me assure you, it is! The rich, hot coffee, tempered by the cool ice cream and crunchy bites of sweet caramel corn are what I consider a perfect sweet ending. Try it for your next dinner party, and I think you will agree!
