I love a good bold cup of coffee after dinner; and I also love a "lil' sweet" to finish the meal off. This quick and simple after-dinner drink/dessert is "right up my alley" as it combines them both!

I sometimes like to add a little Amaretto, Kahlua, or Bailey's Irish Cream for a lil' kick of additional flavor. You can top it with a little whipped cream too if you like (I'm not big on whipped cream, so I leave it off).
