Mexican Coffee

Loved this stuff!  Definitely not an every morning coffee, but great for a special weekend treat or as an after dinner dessert.

Mexican Coffee

1/2 cup ground dark roast coffee
1 T ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
5 cups water
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
sweetened whipped cream
ground cinnamon to garnish

Place coffee in coffee filter or filter basket; add cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add water to coffeemaker; brew according to manufacturer's directions.

Combine brown sugar, chocolate syrup, and milk in large heavy saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves.  Stir in coffee and vanilla.  Serve immediately with a dollop of wh ipped cream; garnish, if desired.

(Makes 6 1/2 cups)
