"This was quite good and very easy to make. Next time I think I'll try making a bit stronger coffee than used to enhance the flavor even more."

"This is light, a little on the sweet side for me, but my husband liked it. I think I might try to make it with cooked pudding, just to see if that worked. If I am in a hurry I will certainly make it as written again. I also might add more cinnamon or perhaps some nutmeg."

"This is VERY tasty! Simple to make, and will keep them coming back for more. Can easily be made into a pie filling as well, and goes great with an Oreo crust. Have had alot of people ask me for this recipe."
