Espresso Cream Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa

The bold chocolate flavor makes for a rich cup of cocoa without being too sweet. Top with a foamy espresso whipped cream that will melt in as you sip.

Espresso Cream Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa

This cocoa is not as sweet as some recipes. I like the bold chocolate flavor but I don’t like feeling like I am drinking a candy bar. This cocoa is rich and satisfying without being overly sweet. Then it is topped with espresso spiked whipped cream. The combination of the two flavors is amazing. It is similar to the flavor of a mocha latte when the espresso whipped cream melts into the cocoa.

This is the perfect drink to end a cozy winter day! Or a great one to help you get through a weekday!
