This month we are featuring the

Raspberry Truffle Mocha

February’s Donation Creation is inspired by your favorite box of assorted chocolates – flavors of white and dark chocolate carry a pop of raspberry filling. This latte gets topped with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle, plus a few sweet sprinkles! Enjoy it as a hot latte, iced latte, or blended frappe.

In February, $1 from every Donation Creation sold will be donated to two organizations serving individuals with special needs in our area: Best Buddies of Central Illinois and Night to Shine. Read on to learn more about these tremendous organizations!
