Mocha Coffee Punch is a recipe that I’ve been wanting to play with for a while after having it a few times a different ladies get-togethers. This is a mocha version with a bit of cinnamon for a touch of coziness. Mocha Coffee Punch can be made with or without caffeine (and with or without a splash of rum, Irish Cream, or other favorite liqueur).

But dip a caramel apple in chocolate and something magical happens. I don’t know what it is, but it’s magic, man. The chocolate seals the gooey caramel in and combines with an excellent crunchy apple to create flavor perfection in my book.
