Coffee, Lollies, Chocolate, and Eco-Friendly Firestarter

chocolate
We celebrated World Chocolate Day on July 7th with coffee and chocolate! It is known that the bold and strong flavour of coffee enhances the rich flavours of chocolate, which is why many delicious chocolate cakes have coffee in it. When I bake chocolate cake, I sometimes add a cup of brewed coffee or a few spoons of strong coffee to add flavour to the chocolate cake.
