Another winner from the Coffee Queen. This treat is rich, thick, creamy and oh so flavorful. I loved it, especially the use of the vanilla bean and brandy. What a decadent treat. Which I will make again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Summer 09 - Comfort Cafe.
So very rich and yummy! I left out the brandy, used decaf coffee and sugar. Great drink, thanks Annacia!
Thanks for a lovely cappuccino recipe! I have a sweet tooth so next time would add more chocolate as we ended up adding sweetener to this coffee. I love the addition of a real vanilla bean- you can't beat it for flavour.
