This my friends, is the stuff dreams are made of right here, for real!  If you like Irish Cream, you will fall head over heels in love with this Kahlua Mexican Crema!  It’s sweet with a chocolatey coffee kick that is great stirred into coffee, hot cocoa or drizzled over ice cream.  I die!

Kahlúa  asked me to create 5 different recipes for the holidays using any of their coffee infused rum flavors.  You may recall the Pumpkin Pietini which I must tell you – is so darned good that you will want to serve it any time of year!

This recipe though….this is one bottle of delicious.  Imagine filling some smaller bottles and handing this out for holiday gifts?  I can tell you that it’s definitely on my list for gift-giving this holiday season.  Hear that friends and neighbors?

This is my note to you:  It’s the holidays so please please please put away the fat-free half and half and make sure you follow this recipe to a T.  It’s worth every single calorie to use the heavy cream and the La Lechera is a sticky sweet decadence that should not be modified.  It will last for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator so plan accordingly when you make it.
