Coffee Is Love

The following is not for the calorie counter
or WW's point tallier. 
Here's a quick and easy spin on some classics.
Live a little and INDULGE.

In a mug,  place a heaping tablespoon  full 
of semisweet chocolate chips. 
Add hot coffee and stir it up until it's dissolved.  
Stir in sugar to taste and top it off with a pinch of cinnamon. 
I'd suggest adding whipped cream but I don't care much for it.  
If you're into whipped cream, by all means add some.

Mochachinno Smoothie
In a blender pour one 6oz container of chocolate yogurt, a squeeze of chocolate syrup, 1/2 tsp instant coffee granules, and 1 cup of ice cubes.  Blend it all up and enjoy. 
Malted Vanilla Cream
Blend milk, coffee and  malted milk powder in
a saucepan over low heat. 
Add a drop of vanilla extract and stir. 
Once heated thoroughly, serve sprinkled with 
a pinch of malted milk powder.  
Whipped cream fans, knock yourselves out.
 Cafe Mexicano con Chocolate (Gringo version)
Pour a packet of instant hot chocolate into a cup of  hot coffee.  Add a little milk to your liking.  
Throw in a fair amount of cinnamon and a pinch of chile powder. 
Mix it all up y es todo.
Now on to the fun stuff.
Irish Coffee
In a mug, stir in whiskey and sugar till you get the taste you like.  
Now add some hot coffee.  
Mmmm, yeah buddy.
Although it is not coffee, a Brandied Toddy is most definitely worth adding to the list. 
Yummy Yum Yum
Brandied Toddy
Prepare a cup of hot tea.  
Add honey and a little sugar to taste.  
Stir in brandy.  Top with a lemon slice and sprinkle with nutmeg.
 24/7:  Coffee is pure Heaven!
