That is the perfect description for this sweet, creamy, maple treat.
2 Cups half-and-half
3/4 Cups Pure Maple Syrup
3 Cups Strong Brewed Coffee
Cook half-and-half and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated. (Do not boil.) Stir in coffee. May top with frothed half-and-half, if desired. Makes 6 cups.
Recipe from January 2010 Southern Living Magazine.
This was so good hot, I thought why not try it iced... Soooooo good! Because it made such a large amount, I stored the extra in the fridge to enjoy for a few days. It was just as good the second day as the first. You could definitely make this the day before serving to save on time. I think this would make the perfect accompaniment for a brunch or even an after dinner party. I also think a splash of Kahlua would be quite tasty in this drink. Heck, you could probably add to vanilla ice cream and mix in the blender for a sweet treat!
Enjoy your weekend!
