Spiced Mocha

I'm the kind of person that can drink coffee from the time I get up until right before I hop into bed and fall right to sleep. Instead of having just plain coffee this evening, I decided to make myself some spiced mocha instead. Actually, I made a few servings. I was going to make this in the afternoon, but decided against it since it has Kahlua in it. I don't think I need alcohol in the afternoon!

Spiced Mocha

This is soooo good! I didn't really measure any of the ingredients, just kind of threw it altogether in one of my small crockpots. Here's what I did:

First I made a pot of hazelnut creme coffee. I heated about 1-1/4 cups of water in the microwave and poured about half a pot of coffee and the water into the crockpot. Then I added two packets of lower calorie hot chocolate (that is made with water instead of milk). Stir until chocolate is mixed. I then added some hazelnut Kahula (didn't measure, just what looked like a good amount) and chili powder. I wanted it to have some kick, so maybe 4 or 5 shakes from the chili powder container. I added chocolate whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum!

I have this all to myself, since the hubby doesn't like anything spicy...and that is just fine with me!
