Choffy Tiramisu

This is a recipe I created back in 2012 when I was a Choffy Distributor. I love Choffy but I am not a fan of coffee or alcohol so this is the perfect replacement for me and my family. For my daughter that is gluten free we substitute gluten free graham crackers for the Lady fingers and do it in a mini bread pan for her.


  • 3-4 cups of strongly brewed Choffy**
  • 1/2 ounces rum extra (to your liking) or 1/4 cup Butter Rum Syrup
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 ¾  cup whipping cream, divided
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 36 to 42 Italian-style hard ladyfinger biscuits
  • Optional 2-4 tablespoons Choffy Grinds Powder
  • Optional Chocolate Curls or Grated Chocolate


Combine the Choffy and run extract in a bowl or shallow baking dish and set aside.

Bring a small saucepan with 2 inches of water to a boil over high heat. In a small heatproof bowl that will fit on top of the saucepan, or in a double boiler, combine the egg yolks and 1/2 cup of the whipping cream. Place over the hot water and whisk continuously until the mixture is 160 degrees F and coats the back of a spoon, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk for 3 to 4 minutes to cool. Set aside to cool completely, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, add the remaining whipping cream, prepared yolk mixture, and sugar and beat until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the mascarpone and combine well.

Place 1 layer of the ladyfingers in a 9 by 13-inch pan; most pans this size fit them in 6 rows of 3. Then, dip both sides of the ladyfingers quickly into the Choffy mixture and place back into the pan. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the cookies. . Repeat with another layer. Optional sprinkle with half of the Choffy powder and or chocolate. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 12 hours.

To serve cut with a sharp thin knife into squares.

*Options for making Choffy Grind Powder

1- Completely dry the brewed grinds on the fruit roll tray of a food dehydrator. Grind into fine powder using a Mortar and Pestal. (My favorite way)

2- Completely dry the brewed grinds on the fruit roll tray of a food dehydrator. Grind into fine powder using spice grinder.

3- Grind wet grinds in a food processor and then dehydrate.

**To strongly brew Choffy add 1 ½ cups Choffy to 32 oz Boiling Water brewed in the 48oz French Press for 30 minutes. Our favorite is to blend IC French Roast, Volta and Ecuador French Roast together.

Choffy Lace Cookies

This cookies were inspired by my friend from New Zealand. She told me she was missing Anzac Biscuits from home. So I research them, found Golden Syrup at a Polynesian Market and made them for her. They were delicious, but I wanted to make them my own. I played around with a few failed attempts, but this are a family favorite.


1 ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup oat flour (wheat or white flour works as well)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup Choffy Grinds (post brew)
½ cup butter
¼ cup brewed Choffy
¼ Corn Syrup
1 tsp baking soda
More Choffy if needed
1 cup White Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (these biscuits can be quite sticky, so I really recommend the parchment paper if you have it).

Add the coconut, flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, and Choffy grinds to the large mixing bowl and stir to combine.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter, brewed Choffy, and corn syrup together, boiling. Remove from heat. Add the soda into the melted butter mixture. (the soda will cause the mixture to bubble and expand).

Pour the melted butter mixture into the dry ingredients and stir till well combined. If the mixture seems to dry, add a little more brewed Choffy (I added about a tablespoon).

Drop the dough in heaping teaspoonful onto the lined baking sheet, leaving plenty of room for spreading (they will spread quite a bit).

Bake the biscuits in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Cook them closure to 10 minutes if you want them chewier then brittle.

Allow the biscuits to cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Melt white chocolate chips in the Microwave on half power for 2 ½ to 3 ½ minutes. Drizzle melted white chocolate over the cooled cookies.

Choffy Protein Balls

We are athletic at our house and have experimented with different protein drinks, bars, and balls for both energy and recovery. These protein balls are my daughters favorite after a hockey game. My daughters favorite or almond, my sons are peanut butter, and mine are combination of almond and peanut butter or cashew. I enjoy them before and after workouts.

Choffy is brewed cocoa which promotes Lean Muscle Mass Growth. How? There is a compound in the cocoa bean called Epicatechin and when ingested help to increase follistatin levels in your body.  What does that mean?  It means that with higher follistatin levels your body can produce muscle.  Muscle burns calories, which in turn helps you to maintain body balance.


1 cup Brewed Choffy Grinds
3 cups Oats
1/4 cup Whey Protein or Protein Powder
1 1/2 cups Natural Nut Butter (Almond, Peanut Butter, or Cashew)
3/4 cup Honey
1/2 cup Brewed Choffy


Combined oats, Choffy grinds, and protein powder in a mixing bowl.  Stir in nut butter. In a medium sauce pan cook Choffy and honey over medium heat until boiling. Pour hot ingredients over other ingredients and mix well. Use a cookie scoop to make uniform size ball. Scope out onto a cookie sheet. Form into balls and refrigerate for 1 hour to set up. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

1 – 6 oz box of flavored gelatin (Strawberry, Cherry, Raspberry, or Orange)
2 1/2 cups of Hot Choffy
1/2 cup of Water
2 cups of Cold Water

Choffy – 100% Natural BREWED CHOCOLATE drink!

In 2011 a friend introduced me to the most divine drink Choffy. I fell in love with it and so did my family. We drink it both hot and cold. Our current favorite is brewing equal parts El Sonado Dark and IC Dark. We prefer brewing it in a french press, but you can also get it in K-cups. I love that there is nothing but 100% roasted cocoa beans in it. Each person can chose how they drink it; black, with a little honey, with cream, a pinch of salt, or with coffee creamer. We also love making protein shakes with cold Choffy as our liquid. I have not tried the French roasts yet, but I will be trying them them soon.

At the time they had a direct distribution program and so naturally I became a distributor so I could share it with others.  Since then they sell directly from their website https://www.choffy.com.

Choffy is made with cocoa beans that are roasted, ground and then packaged so that you can brew them just like coffee, but get all the health benefits of dark chocolate. Unlike coffee, Choffy supplies you with long-lasting energy throughout the day without the crash, jitters, or other negative effects of caffeine. Which means you can drink as much as you want, whenever you want.

Another thing I love about Choffy is that the grind are 100% Cocoa and are therefore edible. So  once they have been brewed we use them in recipes. I will be adding the recipes here so you can enjoy them too!

Each cocoa been has been carefully chosen for it’s different regions of the world for it flavor profiles.  Each variety comes in Medium Roast, Dark Roast, or French Roasts.

Ivory Coast is the original and signature Choffy origin.  These single estate cacão beans from the Ivory Coast have a lighter chocolate flavor with hints of natural grains and earthy notes.

Volta comes from premium cacão found in Ghana (West Africa), after years of searching. Volta boasts an exceptionally rich depth, yet smooth cocoa flavor.  You feel the chocolate fill your mouth with every sip.

El Sonado means the dreamed or dreamy.  This Choffy is just that, chocolaty, full flavored all packed together with one of the smoothest aftertastes that we have ever produced.

There are a number of different health benefits from dark chocolate. Here are just a few as listed is directly from the Choffy website.
