    using espresso in a recipe - how do you do it?

    hi!
    i'm trying to come up with my own signature tamale. i have the basics for making a chocolate tamale in my head but i want to add a hint of espresso. how would i do this?

    i'm going to be melting chocolate, would i use espresso grounds (before or after brewing?) or would i make espresso and pour it in?

    please help me make my yummy vision come true!!

    hello...
    brew it and use the liquid.
    you can brew it stronger than usual or with less water if you want it stronger.

    sounds yummy!

    Depends on when you want to incorporate it. The problem with flavoring the melted chocolate is that it will cause the chocolate to stiffen immediately. Just like adding water to melting chocolate. But if the chocolate is emulsified with other ingredients you can add the brewed espresso.
