Simply irresistible: offer steaming cups of decadent mocha with hint of Irish cream, surprisingly easy when you start with instant cocoa mix.
cups hot strong brewed coffee
envelopes (1.25 oz each) Irish creme instant cocoa mix
cup powdered sugar
cup Irish creme-flavored syrup, if desired
Sweetened whipped cream, if desired
Chocolate shavings, if desired
In 3-quart saucepan, mix hot coffee, cocoa mix and powdered sugar until blended. Stir in half-and-half and syrup. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot.
Serve in mugs; top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
Avoid last-minute preparation—prepare this coffee drink a day or two ahead and store it in the refrigerator. Reheat on top of the stove or in the microwave oven.
