- Ready In:
- 48 ounces brewed coffee
- 1⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, special dark chocolate
- 1⁄2 cup sugar-free syrup, Torani
- 1⁄2 cup half-and-half cream (or milk)
- I usually brew a full 12 cup pot of coffee (about 72 oz) and drink about 24 oz hot.
- With remaining pot, I put the cocoa powder in a beverage container, pour the coffee into the container, and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
- In a quart-sized mason jar, I put 6-8 pumps of sugar-free Torani syrup (about 1/4 cup) with half & half to taste.
- Shake beverage container until cocoa powder is mixed into liquid.
- Pour into mason jar that already contains sugar-free syrup and half & half, and enjoy.
- You will have enough for two days of mochas.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I have been working with families for over 18 years, and I have taught as a licensed parent and family educator in the state of Minnesota. I currently work in St. Paul Public Schools (District 625) working with families whose children were aged birth to 5 years old. One of my favorite ages to work with has to be those adorable 3-year-olds who tell it like it is-they crack me up! My teaching is built upon a philosophy of critical reflection, strength-based learning strategies, meeting families where they are at in their everyday living, and using a holistic approach to understand parenting challenges in the real world. My doctorate is in Education: Curriculum and Instruction-Family, Youth, and Community from the University of Minnesota. I had a strong focus on parent and family education, and my research was focused on teens and youth. I have explored children and teen's peer group formation, and my Ph.D. dissertation examined parent-teen conflict and argument from the teen perspective. My dissertation was published in book form under the title, "What Are Teens Thinking? Parent-Teen Conflict and Argument From the Teen Perspective." In addition to teaching parents, I dedicated many years to teaching up and coming parent educators, family life educators, and early childhood educators as an adjunct faculty at both the University of Minnesota and Concordia University
