Some warm drinks for snowy afternoons

Hello friends:

Thank you for your comments, I love them, you are so nice.
Today, its very windy and cold, perfect for a warm
drink at the end of the day.  Traditional hot chocolate with marshmellows, herbal teas with honey from the "farmer's market", or this great "dulce de leche" coffee  from "the pioneer cook"

Recipe: Dulce de Leche Coffee

 |   |   | 


  • 4 cups Strongly Brewed Good Coffee
  • 6 ounces, fluid Dulce De Leche (*see Note)
  • 6 Tablespoons Kahlua, More If Preferred
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Chocolate, Grated

Preparation Instructions

Add Dulce de Leche to the very hot coffee; stir until completely dissolved and combined. Keep coffee hot.
Combine cream with sugar and whip until stiff.
Add 1 tablespoon Kahlua to each coffee cup. May add 1 1/2 if desired, or may add whiskey or brandy in addition.
Pour the coffee/dulce de leche mixture into each glass. Top with a heaping tablespoon whipped cream and grated chocolate of your choice.
Absolutely sinful!
*Dulce de Leche is sold in the Hispanic aisle of supermarkets, or in Hispanic specialty markets. It is sold in solid 15 ounce blocks, or in cans or bottles in more of a liquid form. You can also find recipes for making your own Dulce de Leche using sweetened condensed milk. Yum!
