Mocha Java My Way

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Annacia

Coffee and chocolate often are served side by side. This elegant drink combines them in a single, satisfying cup. I use a cinnamon stick for a swizzler or a peppermint stick for the holidays.

I have made this so many times it is almost my daily coffee. The only little change was I heated the half-n-half in the microwave - so simpler. I use sweet 'n low for the sugar. Absolutely delicious and what a treat for an evening coffee. Thanks for sharing with us all Annacia.
