I found the flavors in this to be perfectly balanced. The only change I made was to cut the sugar by half, and it was plenty sweet enough for me. The serving sizes are small (less than 8 oz.). I cut this down to 2 servings and drank it all myself, in one of my smaller cups. Will be making again, though, and the whole recipe for one of my LARGE mugs :)
Well, this smelled delicious on the stove and would be lend a lovely scent to a room. However, we were not that happy with the final product. It was as if there were too many conflicting flavors for us. The coffee and chocolate, orange, cloves and cinnamon, were just too different to meld well. I drank a cup and it was ok, but dh (who I had made it for) did not care for it. Probably not something I'd make again. Sorry Sharon, but thanks so much for posting it for us to try.
