1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
4 whole cloves
1 cup regular-grind coffee (dry)
1/2 cup chocolate-flavored syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Whipped cream (optional)

  2. Stir in coffee; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in chocolate syrup and vanilla; remove from heat.
  4. Let stand 5 minutes for coffee grounds to settle.
  5. Strain coffee into coffee server or individual cups; discard grounds mixture.
