Gingerbread Coffee Reviews

  • This was good, but the spices werent near close enough to gingerbread for me. I made this a recipe for one and I used fat free half-n-half instead of full fat and I used Cafe Verona brewed coffee. Its tasty but not quite there for me.

  • My husband and I made this to sip while we decorated our Christmas tree. Weve decided to make it a tradition The molasses mixture can be kept on hand for visitors over the holidays.

  • This is delicious I am enjoying one of these now. All I had to use was Land O Lakes fat free creamer and I forgot to add whipped cream and it is still so rich and good that I will be skipping lunch. Its not a bad idea to strain out some of the spices so you dont get a big, spicy mouthful at the end.

  • Fabulous The only problem with this recipe is that my husband is now addicted to this stuff. We usually skip the whipped cream (out of laziness) but Ive made this once using cinnamon whipped cream with great results. I also add some ground cloves directly to the molassas mixture instead of dusting it on top and sometimes I add a little ground nutmeg. Weve used ordinary milk a few times instead of half-and-half, but its not quite as good that way -- the cream smooths out the flavours somehow.

  • Ok...but not as good as I thought it might be. The spices made the drink a bit granulary. And I put in much less mix in the drink. Best to have at room tempeture when adding or it takes a long time to dissolve. Decent, but not great.

  • I knew Id love this...I used fat free half & half and omitted the whipped creme. Yum

  • This was soooo delicious. My husband and I both enjoyed it and will definitely make it again. Easy too

  • Good I didnt add the whipped cream but I am sure it would add to the richness of the overall product.

  • This is a real treat Thanks Jennifer A great alternative to hot cocoa.This is already a family favorite

  • I can only drink coffee if it is flavored with something. I think this recipe has really good flavor, but it was a little too sweet and too rich, I could not drink the entire cup. I will try it again with a few adjustments.

  • This was really good but really rich Its enough to knock you over...or at least fill you up so you dont want you next meal. I left out the whipped cream, and it was good enough without it.

  • Need a last minute gift idea for the coffee lover? I made this and put it in the Condiment Squeeze Bottles you can buy at most any department store. I tied a ribbon around it (it would be great if you found gingerbread men ribbon) with a tag shaped like a gingerbread man With just a squeeze you have gingerbread coffee Delicious

  • AMAZING I was a little skeptical because I am not a huge fan of molasses, so I scaled it down to one serving for starters and WOW...its the middle of Summer, and I cannot WAIT for Fall and Winter because Im going to make this ALL of the time Im actually thinking about making a larger amount of the syrup to store in the fridge so its a little more convenient to make. I used fat free cream and cool whip and it was delicious

  • I found this recipe last year during the holidays and my mom and I loved it. I fell in love with Starbucks gingerbread latte and this is a wonderful fix for that (the taste is pretty close). We made the syrup up and kept it in the fridge and enjoyed it several times. We pulled it out on Christmas for family who came over and it made a special treat.

  • Pretty good. I didnt add whipped cream and I did use fat free milk in the coffee. The flavor was nice but not fantastic. I think it tasted like gingerbread but at the same time it had a strong molasses flavor. I will try it again with less molasses and maybe a bit more cinnamon and ginger.

  • I really enjoyed this... was spiced just right not to mask the coffee flavor entirely. I only added just a hint of whipped cream to color the top, although I did add just a bit more white sugar to taste. Cloves can be overpowering fast and I was leery to garnish, but they did add that last little flavor booster it needed I thought. A special blend.

  • This is certainly tasty, but it was a little too heavy for me. Great flavor, although I think I could have done without that much molasses. I topped with French Vanilla Cool-Whip which tasted fantastic with this. Thanks :)

  • My secret santa made me this recipe during our secret exchange week. I think it was my best gift of the week Excellent

  • This recipe is great I wait all year long for Starbucks Gingerbread latte, but after trying this on the weekend, I am going to be making my own all year long I think I even made some for my morning commute to work today I love it

  • This was pretty good I made this as written except I used Splenda brown sugar. In the directions it doesnt state where to add the teaspoon of cloves, so I added it with the other spices and also dusted it on top of the whipped cream. I think this recipe just needs some slight tweaks because the gingerbread flavor was very mild. I would use half the molasses next time because it over powered the other flavors. And I would double the cinnamon and cloves. I would also dust the top with fresh ground nutmeg along with the cloves. I will definitely be trying it again Thanks for this tasty coffee idea

  • Umm, wow. I really had my doubts, but this tastes good. Tastes like gingerbread coffee to me. I didnt however, have half and half, so I used Heavy cream... still great that way too.

  • A good holiday treat. Just make sure you get it all dissolved in the drink

  • Better than the gingerbread lattes Ive had at the local coffee shops, and much, much more affordable - Ive already shared this with my pottery class and my sister-in-law. Its a hit - thanks

  • This tastes like a gingerbread cookie, but the baking soda and 10 minutes of refrigeration are unnecessary.

  • I altered the recipe a bit as I didnt have molasses and whipped cream. I used honey instead of molasses and put double cream instead of the whipped cream. Its soooooo good Cant get enough PS I make it with tea as well as with coffee. Tastes amazing either wayI tried it last week and it instantly became my favourite drink ever Dont have to spend 5 euros a day for Starbucks lattes)))

  • WOW So fantastic I love the Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread coffee but this is Delicious I didnt have any cream as this was a spur of the moment thing I wanted but will get some tomorrow. Its good even with milk Thanks so much for sharing your recipe

  • I thought this was really great. I had to use vanilla Cool Whip, because it is all that I had, and it worked fine. I did not think it was grainy as some others had stated, but my coffee was really hot, so maybe that helped.

  • Tastes just like a gingerbread cookie was dunked in my coffee. Very easy to make. I didnt have whipped cream but Im sure that would only make it 6 stars instead. I wasnt sure about waiting the full 10 minutes to let the mix refrigerate (impatient to try it) but I saw how the mix puffed up a little with the baking soda and turned a nice caramel brown color. Thanks for sharing

  • Easy to make Great to taste I loved sprinkling the ground cloves onto the whipped cream

  • Did I just put baking soda in my coffee? Yes and I like it. It does taste like gingerbread. Dont be sceptical, try this. What a nice surprise. Thank you Jennifer for sharing this unique recipe.

  • This is fantastic

  • This is a very good recipe. I think the flavors are just right, however dont skimp on the half n half or the whipped cream. They really bring it all together. Drink it when its raining outside

  • Oh yum I forgot all about this recipe. I am very seasonal & wont allow myslef to have this except from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I eagerly look forward to it every year.

  • Yummy This was easy, didnt take too long, and my coworkers loved it too. Just like drinking a slice of gingerbread. Thanks

  • I thought this might be a good coffee for the fall, but I was not a big fan. Im not sure if it was from the molasses or if it needed more ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

  • I thought this might be a good coffee for the fall, but I was not a big fan. Im not sure if it was from the molasses or if it needed more ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

  • This was really delicious. I had no problem with texture or flavor. It makes me want to continue to put molasses in my coffee.

  • Great recipe I used honey instead of molasses and it turned out great. I used milk instead of cream and skipped the whipped cream, as I just wanted a nice, simple warm drink. Delicious Def. making again.

  • Very tasty, likely really good base for addition of brandy.

  • I was in the mood for an ice coffee drink so made an icy cold coffee variation instead. I made the molasses mixture than added the hot hot coffee so they blended well without being grainy tasting. Than took the mixture and poured it over ice cubes in my blender, added chocolate syrup and cinnamon creamer instead (no half n half), ran blender to desired consistency. Plus, the ice made it frothy so didnt need whipped cream after all. Frothy, incredibly delicious and will make again and again.P.S. In the future, will make it less like Diabetes

  • Good but really sweet I didnt have any coffee so I added some of the sauce to hot cocoa and that was very good. I can see this sauce tasting good on everything from coffee to ice-cream to cakes.

  • Really good but my husband and I werent tasting a lot of gingerbread flavor. Maybe our coffee was too strong, or we will have to use more mix next time. We were bad and used real whipping cream in place of the 1/2 & 1/2 and omitted the whipped cream. All in all it was really tasty and great for the holidays.

  • Wonderful The only change I made was to add 1/2 t of cloves to the mixture ... Because I love cloves ...and figured I wont always put whipped cream on top as one reviewer said it didnt need .. Such a nice treat for the holidays

  • So yummy I thought this sounded a bit weird, but I was really surprised how good it was. I only used about 1/2 T of the mix in my cup, and that was plenty sweet for me. Ill make this again.

  • Excellent recipe, very tasty and easyThis also works well as a latte.

  • This was very good. I only used about a teaspoonful of the stuff in a cup of coffee and the tablespoon was too much. I also didnt have whipped cream, but, oh well. Ill bet a little Baileys or Kalua would kick this up a step Thanks for the recipe Jennifer

  • I will definitely be making this again

  • I wouldnt make this again but for those who are regular coffee drinkers that enjoy flavored brewed coffee - this is something you would want to try.
