Tasty. Very easy to make. I cut the recipe down for just me and hubby. And instead of sugar I used chocolate syrup. Also used more coffee than called for. I wanted a stronger coffee flavor. Read More

I am trying it for the first time but think I will be adding more coffee to it. I also used a 1/3 less sugar and its still SWEET. Add it little by little for your taste. Over all it's good and ill make it again. Read More

I cut this recipe down to 2 servings (which turned out to be only 1). I am trying to decide as I write this how many stars to give it. I was expecting the coffee flavor to be much too diluted with the half and half but it's not. I also expected it to be way too sweet which it is. But the more I drink the more I love this! It's certainly not a morning coffee substitute for me but it does make a very nice dessert type treat or as the submitter suggested a punch for a shower or tea. Read More

I scaled this recipe to 2 servings and it was the perfect amount for 1 serving. I substituted International Delight Sugar Free Vanilla Coffee Creamer for the heavy whipping cream. I also left out the sugar. I loved it! And the perfect coffee drink to cool you off. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
