Prior to this morning, that record was held by petrolium jelly. I was young and stupid, and I thought it looked like donut filling. It wasn't.

Today, I think I'd like to have my stomach pumped.

Without going into too any details, let's just say the Starbucks Omelette needs a few revisions.

It did serve it's desired effect, though. My eyes are propped open like some kind of cartoon character. I'm so wired and awake, I can't imagine ever sleeping again.

Still, I definitely owe God an apology for the abomination I helped bring into this world...

Starbucks Omelette?
I'm not a big coffee fan to begin with (although, I like it when combined with chocolate, caramel and other sweets in chilled/iced forms...), so I have a hard time imagining what you can do to alter this and make it taste good, but I'm curious exactly how you created this. Did you use coffee grounds? Did you pour coffee into the eggs that you were mixing? Both of those sound like bad ideas, but I'm having trouble figuring out how else you combined these two ingredients?

post mortem
You can buy chocolate covered espresso beans at Trader Joes. The coffee portion is crunchy and roasted, leaving you with a mouthful of less-than-appealing grit after a few bites. That's kind of what I was going for.

Used a spoonful of ground espresso (no grit, it completely dissolved), a packet of Hot Chocolate, some milk, a splash of white chocolate syrup, and some hershey's syrup (both cooked in and on top).

What went wrong?
  • I don't like coffee.
  • I used way too much of it.
  • I've never worked with any of these ingredients, together or seperately.
  • I decided to add more white chocolate while it was cooking, which created pockets of a much smoother texture. Those parts were far more intensely gross.

Next Time:
  • Acknowledge that some flavors are stronger than others, and cooking brings them out even more.
  • Limit the unknown variables. Try just the hot chocolate, with hershey's syrup on top. If that works, consider mixing some hershey's syrup directly in. Then experiment with the white chocolate, and finally the coffee. But start small.
  • Don't pour anything into half-cooked eggs, ever, under any circumstances.
