If you are a coffee lover, you know it is the fuel that makes the world go ’round. And if you are a coffee creamer lover, you look forward to that lovely cup of get up and go when it’s dressed up with a little something extra. And that’s ok. Because sometimes we need a little extra. An extra minute or two, an extra spritz of hair spray or just a little something to make the day feel right.

2 glass mugs of Cherry Mocha.

This simple, homemade Cherry Mocha Coffee Creamer has just that right amount of extra. Inspired by chocolate covered cherries and a recent trip to Starbucks, this easy creamer is all you need to turn your average cup of coffee into an indulgent treat right at home!

What You Need to Make Cherry Mocha Coffee Creamer

  • half & half
  • dark chocolate dessert sauce
  • liquid from a jar of maraschino cherries
  • vanilla
Mixing up the Cherry Mocha coffee creamer.

At my house, we drink coffee all day long. We like it hot, iced and almost any way in between. That’s why I make my own coffee creamers to add to my coffee now and then. They are easy and quick to make and offer more bang for the buck than their store bought/ coffee house specialty counterparts.

This recipe is just a matter of mixing together a little half & half, chocolate sauce, vanilla and the syrup from a jar of cherries. It yields almost 4 liquid cups of creamer. That’s quite a bit… which is perfect if you have a house full of coffee drinkers like I do or are planning a little coffee get-together.

When you really need a little extra (or maybe a special dessert without the hassle), sitr in a little Cherry Mocha Creamer and top your cuppa joe with a little whipped topping, chocolate sauce and a cherry. Wow! Now, you’re talking my kind of extra!
