  1. Delicious! I'm a fan of cinnamon, so I knew I would enjoy this. It was hard to wait the ten minutes while it steeped. Totally worth the wait. I think next time I'll either halve or leave out the brown sugar. I don't drink my coffee sweetened so it was a little too sweet for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I know I'll be making this again.
  2. Excellent mocha coffee!!! I made this for 1 serving and used 2% milk and left out the brown sugar, tasted the coffee and it was sweet enough with just the chocolates, then finished it off with whipped cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for "Best of 2010" Tag Game.

  5. OH MY ~ This is decadent! This is rich and delicious, and probably not the best thing for a diabetic, but it is wonderful :) Definitely a recipe to serve on special occasions. thanks MackinacBride ~ made for COMFORT CAFE ~ SNOWQUEEN'S ROUND, January 2010!


I live in KCMO, originally from Michigan. I'm an administrative assistant in the Internal Medicine department of a urban hospital. I married my high school sweetheart on Mackinac Island in August '02. Some of my favorite things to do...baking, snow skiing, camping, hiking, reading, and playing cards with my parents on Sunday afternoons. Someday, after we retire or win the lottery, I hope to live on Mackinac Island or in the UP of Michigan, possibly even open a B&B.
