Had friends over for pumpkin pie and this was the perfect coffee to go with it. I, too, will keep this molasses mixture on hand over the holidays. Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap #57. TFS!

So you like to dress up your coffee with sugar and spice and then dollop on a little bit of whipped cream. Yes, we all have our secret passions, don't we? Made for A/NZ#54 Recipe Tag.

Delicious! Having the molasses mixture ready to go in the fridge made this quick and easy to fix. Sweet with a nice balance of spices. Instead of half and hald and whipped cream I used vanilla soy milk. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
