    very good. made a practice round before St. Patrick's day, and had it alone over some ice. everyone loved it, perfect amount of chocolate and coffee and cream flavor. Adults had it with a little kahlua and they said it was just a little better

    I liked this very much - it's easily tweaked to personal taste and made an impressive cup of coffee.

    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.
