"Added more chocolate syrup and splenda to sweeten. Just keeping adding and taste test!"

Reviewed Dec. 10, 2010

"I made this recipe one time for my in-laws. It was gone by the end of the weekend. I'm not a big coffee drinker so I opted out of the instant coffee. My suggestion would be to add more vanilla and almond if you do this. I think 1/4 C more sugar could be added to the recipe. It was tasty, but it could be perfected!"

"This is a tasty treat. If you like strong coffee, go light on the mix but if you are not a coffee drinker like me, add a little more of the irish cream mix to the coffee."
