Spiced Coffee in the Slow Cooker

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

I'm not normally a coffee drinker but I really like this. It works well for holiday open houses and brunches. I leave the anise out because I don't like the taste. This recipe is from Taste of Home Quick Cooking.

My guests really enjoyed this! I don't drink coffee, so I'm basing this review on their comments. :) The only change I made was to use 1/2 teaspoon of anise seeds instead of the extract, since that's what I had; I just added them along with the rest of the spices. My four guests polished off all 8 cups, and only one -- my fiance -- thought that the chocolate was not really necessary; he would prefer it without. I can see it working either way, depending on one's tastes. Thanks for an easy, great addition to my drinks cookbook! :)
