The debate over whether candy corn is the best or worst of the Halloween treats has been raging for decades.

Here I have deconstructed those flavors and incorporated them into a sweet coffee treat.

The Queens take on a Pharisäeer Kaffee (German-rum coffee)
It has been suggested that the Pharisäeer Kaffee originated in the 19th century at a baptismal celebration. The father, a local German farmer, decided to add rum to the guest's coffee as a surprise. This concoction was then topped with whipped cream to mask the odor of the alcohol from the unsuspecting pastor. The result was this lovely, soon to become a traditional, German rum coffee. Incidentally, do not stir this drink before imbibing. Traditionally, anyone caught stirring would be responsible for getting the next round. Enjoy!
