Sweet Maple Coffee

Three of my favorite things are coffee, half-and-half, and maple syrup.  Imagine my delight when I saw a recipe in Southern Living magazine that combined the three into a yummy deliciousness!  My friend, Lindsay, calls coffee that you fluff up with sweetness "Fluffy Coffee".
That is the perfect description for this sweet, creamy, maple treat.

Maple Coffee


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!
