C is for Coffee Hot Fudge Sauce

Yes, I know that Christmas Day is over, but I thought I would share one last “C is for Coffee” recipe that you can use for homemade Christmas presents next year.

Our “D” ingredient will come after Christmas and will be fast and furious and FUN!  It will be all my own recipes so it should be interesting… stay tuned!

Okay, back to C is for Coffee…
