Oh, yum, Di. Your recipes never fail to satisfy. Had this tonight as my pre-bed drink. Would have this every cold night if my hips would let me! LOL. Very elegant looking, too, with the cocoa dusted whipped cream. Wish I could take a decent photo of this, but I'm having trouble with drinks. When I finally figure out how to do it, I'll have again and hopefully give it the proper look to go with the great taste. As always, thnx for posting. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
