MMMMMMMM Yummy !!! I had 2 cups along with kittencal's Chocolate Peanut Butter Double Chip Cookies for a decedent afternoon snack. Doesn't get any better than this, LIfe is GOOOOD !!! I am the only coffee drinker in the house, so I put the rest in a milk bottle and refrigererated it over night. I tried it cold this morning and it is really good. Tastes better then Starbucks coffee mocha in little jars from the supermarket and a lot cheaper !!! It also tastes good reheated in the microwave. I will be making this often.

oh delicious! I treat coffee as a treat, and like my coffee sweet, but hate buying those chemical-laden creamers from the store. This was a perfect fit for me. I halved the recipe, because I'm the only coffee drinker in the house. I didnt have any semisweet chocolate so I used 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder. I have a new addiction. Thank you littleturtle!
