Irish Cream Coffee in the Slow Cooker

No wonder the Irish are so happy!  Try this this weekend for game night, Bunco, etc.!  Simple yet delicious!  Make in your slow cooker:
The Ingredients.
serves 4
3 cups strong black coffee
1/4 cup  Irish Cream Liqueur* (unless you’re feistier than I am and want to add more!)
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
4 tablespoons sweetened whipped cream (the stuff in the can, or make your own)
The Directions.
Use a 2-quart slow cooker for this one, or DOUBLE everything for a 4-quart (might be a fun idea for bunco or scrapbooking night). Combine the coffee and Irish cream in your slow cooker. Stir in the whipping cream and cocoa powder. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, or until the liquid is as hot as you like your coffee to be. Serve in mugs with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.
The Verdict.
OH MY GRACIOUSNESS. I really liked this! The sweetened whipped cream is important—the coffee and the Irish Cream is too strong without a bit of sugar to cut it.
