Cinnamon Coffee Bars

Grab a java

Coffee, java, joe. Whatever you prefer to call it, it is certainly a popular beverage. However, coffee isn’t just for drinking as this month’s recipes show. Although we do include two liquid versions, our readers submitted a variety of recipes that not only contain coffee but would go well with it. Not surprisingly, many of them contain chocolate and coffee – a wonderful marriage of two flavors.
