Diabetic version.

I love the spicy flavor of this coffee! It can be served as "dessert" to company. I substituted a granulated brown sugar with the strong spices and it was very tasty, you could not tell that it was not real brown sugar.

Perfect Meal ending

My daughter and I really liked this! Very tasty, and a perfect finish to our Mexican themed meal. It was an effort to make, but well worth it...:)

Delicious and a MONEY SAVER

I tried this on a whim. We loved it - guests asked for seconds and wanted the recipe. My family likes the taste anise seed adds to food (I've only used it with meats and vegetables). I was delighted to find another use for a favorite herb. I used the dark brown sugar and found it worked quite well. Interesting taste change. We'll be making this again!!
