After-Dinner Mocha

“Not a bad substitute for a high-priced Starbuck’s mocha latte, especially given the price differential. For me, this recipe is not sweet enough, so I increased the sugar to 1/3 cup. Any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and either enjoyed iced the next day or gently reheated over medium-low heat.” – April Ferre
