Chocolate Irish Coffee
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This coffee is strong and not for the faint of heart! The addition of the chocolate gives this coffee a slight sweetness but not overly sweet. The Creme de Menthe adds a hint of minty flavor. The whipped cream topping really makes this coffee. Make sure to use a good, smooth Irish whiskey. This will definitely warm you up on a cold day! The Test Kitchen
