Sweet angel food cake layered with chocolate pudding, whipped cream, and a rich coffee drizzle. The perfect no-guilt dessert!

Our 5-month-old Reuben is the most adorable baby. And of our three boys, he's definitely the happiest baby! He quite literally smiles and laughs all day long. Until he's hungry or tired of course. Then monster baby comes out to play. Yikes!

Around 7 weeks old, he slept straight through the night. Like 8:30 pm to 8:00 am, without needing to wake up to eat. This went on until approximately one month ago. When he decided that he did indeed need to eat in the middle of the night. I should have realized this was coming when he was already growing out of 3-6 month clothing. So pretty much I get up around 3:00 am. And every. hour. after. UGH.

There is just not enough coffee!

My morning coffee is sacred to me right now. I don't think I could function for the rest of the day without it!  Actually, I'm quite certain I couldn't. No one warns you that when you become a parent you have to be "on" the second you wake up in the morning. Somebody's thirsty. Somebody's hungry. Nobody wants the same thing. And everything is all of a sudden SO LOUD. And then you and your spouse get the brilliant idea to add a new baby to the mix. 

But at least I get my precious coffee every morning. And that is definitely something I'm happy to enjoy, especially when the night has been insanely long!

This dessert is one I was inspired to create from an old trifle recipe from a church cookbook I found from the 1960's. Don't you just love how retro this is?! A coffee drizzle, chocolate chips, and International Delight Simply Pure Vanilla Creamer all make this amazing, light dessert absolutely delicious and take it to a whole new level!

Coffee along with a coffee-flavored dessert. Keep away boys, Mommy needs a break! And no, you cannot have a bite.

...Ok. Maybe just one little bite. :)

This new International Delight Simply Pure creamer is my new favorite find at Walmart. Only 5 simple ingredients including real milk, cream, and sugar. I honestly use this creamer every morning and it tastes absolutely fabulous in my "precious" AM coffee! I can't wait to try the Caramel and Hazelnut flavors next - once I finish my beloved Vanilla - yum!
