I found this recipe typed on a yellowing sheet of paper tucked between the pages of a recipe book I bought at an estate sale. I love the flavors of coffee and chocolate together. A note added to the recipe states it has 119 calories per serving.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
