An infusion of creamy chocolate and rich coffee! Enough to make one's tastebuds melt! This creation I made up was inspired by one of Iron Bloomers recipes- Coffee Jello. (Forgive me IB for using instant granules!) I topped off this recipe with a splash of Kahlua, whipped cream, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I didn't know if I was in a caffeine stupor or in love! What a fantastic combination!

Wow is this rich. I liked it better cold after sitting overnight in the frig.

I think I've died and gone to chocolate and coffee heaven. This is so good, it'll make you want to slap your mama. It was very easy to make. I didn't have a double boiler, so I used a saucepan over medium heat and didn't have any problem. I also used semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate, since that's what I had on hand. It tasted so good warm, I didn't want to let it cool, but it's good chilled as well. Definitely a keeper!
