Today is National Cappuccino Day.

Grab yourself a Cappuccino and make this easy delicious recipe adapted from the Hershey's Kitchens.

1/3 cup sweet butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Chopped Dark Chocolate (70-85% cacao)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
9-inch baked pastry crust (prepared or make your own)
(wait until ready to serve): CAPPUCCINO CREME: In mixer, combine 1 cup (1/2 pt.) whipping cream, 1-1/2 teaspoons powdered espresso, 2 teaspoons DARK Cocoa and 3 tablespoons powdered sugar; beat until stiff. About 2 cups.

Heat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter over low heat. Stir in cocoa and sugar. Add sweetened condensed milk, chocolate and eggs; stir until smooth. Remove from heat. Pour into crust.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes - until center is almost set. Cool completely.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Just before serving, prepare and top with Cappuccino Cream.

Great combination with coffee and dark chocolate. I do enjoy a sweet coffee, together with the dark chocolate that can really emhaphasize the flavor of the cappuccino. =)
