This recipe made it into our Book #242923! 05/26/09 - What a unique way to enjoy coffee! I made this using French vanilla coffee granuals and served it with chocolate sprinkles over top. Buddha said his mouth at first was going 'yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no' but midway through it was all yes, and he wanted more, that is is a *wild* dessert! Thanks for sharing this very unique recipe that is very easy to make!
