02412a 087Dutch Chocolate Wine Delight Coffee

Adapted: Cool Coffee Creamer Secrets-20 Homemade Coffee Creamer Recipes by Jeen  van der Meer

As I have said many times, I love it when I am able to  find little gem cookbooks on Amazon for free. This is one I stumbled on a while  ago and have made several of the creamers out of it. Each has been fantastic.  Although a couple of the recipes call for using non-dairy creamers, a product I  am not thrilled with, there are a chunk which use other ingredients. The ones  that use the non-dairy creamers, I would probably try to alter.

This is  one of my favorite drinks out of the book.  I would easily make this drink for  entertaining friends and it02412a 085 uses one of my favorite ingredients, ChocoVine  Original Wine. I would consider this drink restaurant quality. On a side note, I  made this drink with the original recipe and also with ChocoVine Raspberry. Both  were delicious!

I have stayed very true to the original recipe.

So, here we  go!

2) Pour into hot coffee and stir well. It should be really creamy.
