"I made this last Christmas and again this Christmas. I enjoy the warm flavours for an occasional treat. I do not find it too greasy, but do find the butter flavour compliments the warmth of the spices."

"I made this for a family get together. Should have tested it first! It was too greasy because of the butter and the flavor was not great."

"Very good flavor! I didn't use a whole tablespoon of the butter mixture in 1 cup of coffee because it was pretty sweet. Perfect to warm you up on a cold day!"
