Creamy Chocolate Espresso

By

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Preparation:

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.
