Screw Starbucks or powdered hot chocolate mixes! This recipe teaches you how to make a delicious dark chocolate mocha from scratch. You can use it with coffee or on its own for the best hot chocolate ever.
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cups milk
4 shots Espresso
In a jar, throw in your cocoa powder, brown sugar, and 1 cup of milk. Seal the jar and shake vigorously for approx 2-3 minutes, until the liquid is smooth and there are no powdery cocoa balls floating around.
In a small pot add the remaining 1 cup of milk and the liquid cocoa mixture. Stir and warm on low heat. Make sure not to boil it – milk burns fast.
Prepare enough espresso for 4 people. In a drinking bowl, add espresso and cocoa mixture.
You can also sprinkle with cocoa powder for decoration. Shkoff with fresh crusty bread or croissants for dipping.
