I know this recipe looks like a lot of moving parts but trust me, make it once and you’ll see that it’s so worth it. Every time I eat it, I feel like I’m in a coffee shop in Paris. It’s absolutely divine. I ate something like this years ago at a small coffee shop in France and it was love at first bite. If you do make it do share your thoughts with me. I’d love to hear what you think of it.
