Ingredients:

Instructions:

Brew Your Coffee:

  • Start by brewing a strong cup of coffee using your preferred method. Espresso works exceptionally well, but you can also use a drip brew or French press if you prefer.

Prepare the Chocolate:

  • Take a bar of high-quality dark chocolate and finely chop it. The richness of dark chocolate complements the coffee’s bitterness perfectly. You can adjust the amount of chocolate according to your taste, but a few squares should suffice.

Heat the Milk:

  • In a saucepan, gently heat the milk (or dairy-free alternative) until it’s warm but not boiling. Stir occasionally to prevent scalding.

Melt the Chocolate:

  • In a separate bowl, melt the chopped dark chocolate. You can do this by placing the bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler) or using a microwave in short intervals, stirring each time until it’s smooth and creamy.

Mix It All Together:

  • Pour the brewed coffee into a mug, add the melted chocolate, and stir until well combined. Next, pour in the warm milk and add sugar or sweetener to taste. Stir until everything is blended to perfection.

Top It Off:

  • If you’re feeling extra indulgent, add a dollop of whipped cream on top and a sprinkle of cocoa powder for an extra touch of elegance.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Your creamy chocolate coffee is now ready to be savored. Sip slowly and savor the harmonious marriage of coffee and chocolate
