Good Golly Miss Molly, how did I miss this cup of pleasure for an entire year? Never mind I have now discovered it and I just can't tell you how delighted I am :D. it has a rich, beautiful chocolate goodness that isn't overpowered by sweet. The coffee is a lovely under note that adds an elegance to the overall taste. I used Splenda for the sugar and Special Dark Chocolate chips and a pinch of Himalayan Pink salt. Perfection!
