    Roosie's Note:

    When I was little, I always wanted some coffee because my parents were always drinking it... but it tasted gross (I like it now though, haha). I think this would be great to serve your kids with dessert while the grown-ups enjoy their coffee. This is a great and very healthful drink for kids or grown-ups to enjoy. It sounds a little odd, but it actually tastes very good and can act as a good alternative to coffee for adults (who don't want the caffeine) or kids (who don't like coffee!) Molasses is a good source of Vitamin B6 and Selenium, and a very good source of Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. I make mine with blackstrap, but you can use the lighter variety if you (or your kids) prefer. I got this idea/recipe from a peculiar cookbook from the 70s for sugar-free (and artifical sweetener-free) diets called "The Ecological Eclair."

      Now I am a kid so I will give my opnion on this drink. I loved it!! However it isn't very sweet and you have to like molasses to enjoy it. I loved the smell preparing it, and the taste afterwards too! Besides, my favorite show is Gilmore Girls and they always drink coffee, so now I can have something to enjoy when I get one of those cravings!(Which means I will be drinking this alot!) Also, the milk gives it that "coffee colour" Thanks for this recipe Roosie!

      This was very good and quick to make. I only added a little boiling water to dissolve the molasses, and used heated milk for the rest. Delicious!

      This is an interesting drink. It isn't quite coffee...isn't quite tea...not hot cocoa...it has a flavor all its own. I haven't been feeling well, but am tired of plain old tea. I love the molasses tang of gingersnaps and spice cakes, and thought that this would be worth a try. It was very good and comforting on my tender tummy. I think that preparing it with a spiced tea (instead of just boiling water) would be lovely, also.
