....but without the coffeehouse doo-dads and expensive prices! No espresso machine needed for this cup of love. Using accessible ingredients, this mug of hot brew tastes exactly like a $5 hazelnut latte.

Don't substitute ingredients except maybe less sugar, if you'd like, DON'T use any other milk other than the half and half, nad DON'T use any regular flavoring... the richness of the hald and half and the intensity of the Toasted Hazelnut is what makes this taste as rich as a fancy coffeehouse brew!
