Hot Chocolate Espresso
1/2 cup strong hot coffee
1 to 3 teaspoons sugar (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon milk chocolate, grated
1/2 cup cream, or 1/4 cup half-and-half and 1/4 cup milk
Not for the worried weight watcher, this creamy drink is pure indulgence but just right for after ice skating or sledding on a wintry day.
Makes about 1 cup.
Total time: 10 minutes.
In a large cup or mug, mix the coffee and sugar, if desired.
In a small saucepan over low heat, warm the cream. Add the cocoa and mix well.
Add the cream mixture to the coffee and top with a dollop of whipped cream and the grated chocolate. Serve with a cinnamon stick.
