My Mocha




I don't drink much coffee during the warmer months.  Sometimes I will make an iced coffee (or coffee milk) but I just can't conceive of drinking something hot when it's hot outside.  But now that fall is officially here, it's coffee/cocoa/soup time.  Not everyday.  And unless I am at someone's home, I only drink decaf.  But sometimes a hot cup of coffee really just makes the day better. 

One of my favorite night time treats is coffee with Bailey's.  Or just Bailey's.  Ha!  In the morning, sometimes I feel like a sweet treat.  As much as I love Starbucks, they are often too sweet for my tastes.  Their mochas taste like straight chocolate syrup to me.  Not my thing.  But at home, I just add a teaspoon or two of hot cocoa mix to my hot coffee cup.  Just enough to give me that chocolate touch without being overboard.  And a fraction of the price of a Starbucks bevvy.

Not that it will stop me from picking up a beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte (and Eggnog Latte at Christmastime)!

I'm going to try adding a tsp of hot cocoa to coffee to see if I like it. It sounds yummy! A day without coffee is a ruined day for me!

That picture made me look at my travel mug with disdain.

I'm still behind on the Bailey's obsession but I LOVE coffee and I heard it was really good.

BTW, thanks for the advice about the white Dollar Tree plates. Not judging at all because I love it. They have some brands I like :)

I love adding the coffee creamers to my hot cooca for a bit of flavor.
I tried the toffee mocha from Starbucks this week and it was yummy.

I love cocoa in my coffee! It's one of my favorite Friday morning, end of the week indulgences.
