Creamy Chocolate Espresso


You don't need much coffee flavour to improve on an already excellent hot chocolate recipe. Home-made whipped cream is always best, if you have the time to make it.


  • 4 tbs instant coffee crystals
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup hot chocolate powder
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbs sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg


Dissolve coffee crystals in hot water. Add hot chocolate powder and mix well. Pour into demitasse cups. Whip cream with sugar until stiff peaks form, and dollop on top with a dash of nutmeg.
