Wonderful Chocolate Mint Coffee

The college student is home.  The coffee cake is sending a wonderful scent through the house as it bakes.  I just heard the coffee grinder downstairs in the kitchen.  All is right with the world this morning.

As I perused one of my favorite cookbooks this morning, I came upon my favorite after dinner coffee recipe and thought I would share.  Just in time to accompany the pumpkin pie.

It is really quite an awesome coffee recipe and I ALWAYS have these ingredients ready and the recipe handy for holiday times.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Mint Coffee

1/2 c. whipping cream
2 tbs. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 oz. german sweet chocolate - grated
2. c. strong hot coffee
8 tbs. peppermint schnapps
chocolate curls

Beat cream with sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form.  Fold in grated chocolate.
Pour hot coffee evenly into 4 mugs and add 2 tbsp. schnapps to each.  Spoon on whipped cream.  Garnish with chocolate curls & serve immediately.

Oh, so yummy and warm!!! 

Happy Thanksgiving!!
