I was looking for a tapioca recipe and this popped up. I couldn't wait to try it because I love chocolate. My DS and I devoured the whole thing in one day! I won't make it too often because I'd be as big as a house, but it was just delicious with a dollop of whip cream on the top!
I did omit the coffee, I don't have instant in the house ever. This turned out very good although a little rich, still YUMMY! thanks for sharing.
An excellent recipe. I did change a few things though. I used part cream with the milk, omitted the instant coffee, reduced the sugar by a 1/4 cup, and added just a hint of cinnamon. It came out really delicious. Thanks for posting this! ^v^
