I first tried this smooth, creamy punch at a friend's Christmas open house. It was so special and distinctive I didn't leave until I had the recipe. Having a frosty glass of this chocolate punch is almost like sipping a chocolate shake. -Yvonne Hatfield, Norman, Oklahoma

"Because my family and I are not coffee drinkers, I knew I'd need to alter this recipe if I wanted to use it. I did, and it worked out great! I leave out the coffee and instead, I replace it with more instant chocolate drink mix. I think it tastes fabulous and my in laws requested I serve it at Thanksgiving this year!"

"<p>Had this at a baby shower and it was the best thing EVER! Tastes like a mocha frappe only better. They didn't put on the heavy cream or the chocolate curls and it was still plenty good. Will be making this for Thanksgiving.</p>"
