Snacktastic Saturday: Mini Mocha Monkey

I had all the intentions of having a small cup of coffee & a banana as an afternoon "pick-me-up". Then I realized that my kids had devoured the whole bunch of bananas in two days. I still had my coffee & banana. Just in a different way.

I used a small jelly jar - hence the "mini" - to keep myself from drinking too much of this sweet treat. Which meant that it was 3/4 full of espresso (instead of my usual 1/4 full in a bigger glass). 

*Use desired amounts.

•espresso, freshly brewed
•chocolate syrup (I used Hershey's)
•Creme de Banana syrup (a little goes a long way)
•heavy whipping cream

- Brew your espresso into a glass.
- Add chocolate syrup, whipping cream (you can also use chocolate milk if you'd like - heating it is up to you) & Creme de Banana syrup. Stir well.

* Optional toppings: 
•whipped cream
•drizzle of chocolate sauce
