Melanie's notes for this recipe:
This recipe is great and it only costs about $8 to make compared to $25 in a store. I found also that if you cut the whiskey down to 3/4 cup, double the chocolate and use 3/4 teaspoon of coffee you get the best results.

Question---is it 1/2 cup milk, which is 4 oz., or is it 1 12oz can ??
Sounds yummy, but I want to make sure of the measurements !

Read the says,

1/2 c evaporated milk (1 12-ounce can)


Use a 1/2 cup from a 1 12-ounce can. So you should buy a 12oz can and only use a 1/2 cup
