I make this coffee when I have a craving for anything gingerbread. I top it with whipped cream, and add a light sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

This is a great holiday coffee that reminds me of a gingerbread latte that you get a coffee shop... but at a fraction of the cost. Quick and easy to make, it really has a gingerbread flavor from the molasses and spices. The coffee itself isn't all that sweet, but the whipped topping really sweetens this coffee to perfection. Great to sip on with your favorite holiday cookies. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Instant Gingerbread Coffee

Step-by-Step
