I would love to be in Austria right now, at a little outdoor cafe, sipping this warm and soothing drink. I usually sub whipped coconut cream instead of the dairy version. From Bon Apetit, 1991 and posted on Epicurious.

It's perfectly wonderful and we are delighted that I chose this recipe, a delicious treat this was on a cool night. I cheated a little and used canned whipped cream to top the coffee. We like to Thank you! PRMR 2013....Grpa

I love coffee and this fine one is no exception. Love the flavor of the coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and cream, combined. I felt really decadent and added whipped cream to the top drizzled with a little more cinnamon. I was in heaven, for a short while. Thanks so much for sharing Sharon. Made for Best of 2013 Tag game.

Very chocolatey! I tasted more chocolate than coffee, and will cut back on the chocolate next time. I need to buy decaf so I can enjoy this at night! I made this with all coconut cream and sweetened the coffee mixture with one teaspoon sugar/two cups of coffee. Tagged for PRMR 2013.
