Homemade Cinnamon Mocha Coffee

One snowy day, my neighbor called and invited me over to try a new drink she’d made. It was delicious! This spiced coffee is a lovely treat any time of year.—Bernice Morris, Marshfield, Missouri

    I made this with my Sunday brunch menu. It was good, but I may have done something wrong. The mixture seemed to separate somewhat. The taste was yummy, especially with the whipped cream on top, but the last inch or so in the cup was kind of chunky. I will try it again though because of the taste and aroma.

    This is a yummy coffee recipe to make at home. I tried it the first time without whipped cream (since I didn't have any), and next I'll try it with whipped cream. Also, if you have some leftover, it tastes good chilled as well.
