Well, that got me to thinking, about how good chocolate and coffee are together.
And then I was inspired to make a something with hot cocoa in it.
Thus, my Hot Chocolate Peppermint Coffee Coolatta was created!
- 2 Cups COLD Strong Brewed Coffee (consider adding more grains than you normally would)
- 1 Cup Heavy Cream
- 7 Tbs. Sugar
- 5 Tbs. Hersey Chocolate Syrup
- About 14 Ice Cubes
- 1/2 cup Hot Cocoa Powder (I used a mix that already had a peppermint flavor, if you are just using the standard mix, but still want peppermint, then just use a drop of peppermint extract)
- 2 Tbs Heresey Cocoa
- Crushed Dark Chocolate (for garnishing)
- Whipped Cream
Add the cream, sugar, chocolate syrup, hot chocolate cocoa powder, and hersey’s cocoa powder to the rest of your coffee.
If you want the peppermint version of this, add a drop of peppermint extract here. Stir well to combine.
Now pour into a cup. Drizzle some melted chocolate (or heresy’s syrup), then add your whipped cream on top of that, drizzle with chocolate again & garnish with dark chocolate chunks.
You are all set!
Mmmmmm! It is so delicious!
So much better than plain coffee or hot chocolate.
