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 make 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 now and then. They are easy and quick to make and offer more bang for the buck than their store bought/ coffee house 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), use 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!
