I stared at the box of cherry extract in the baking aisle. I had no reason to get it, no plan in mind of how to use it, but I wanted it. A couple days after I’d put the groceries away, I saw that little box of extract in my cabinet and was hit with inspiration. Yay!
I’ve mentioned in the past how I’ve been making my own coffee creamer. I have to say, I really love the different flavor combinations I can make.
So I took that little box of cherry extract and put it in my homemade coffee creamer. I made a batch that was half cherry half chocolate, and a batch that was half cherry half vanilla.
Oh my goodness!
It’s like having a bite of chocolate covered cherry, or a scoop of cherry vanilla ice cream, as you drink your coffee.
I was a bit dubious at first, but I’m so glad I dared. 🙂
