Easy Parisian Cafe Mocha at Home

I have been so excited to share this recipe with you guys. It is so.good. When I was in Paris I visited Angelina’s for the first time and it was fabulous. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s known for amazing hot chocolate made with real dark chocolate. Need I say more?

Well, I do need, because then I got to thinking. What’s better than a straight hot chocolate? A café mocha! A Parisian café mocha! This recipe is absolutely perfect for overnight guests you might have for the holiday season. It’s easy to make and they will most definitely be wowed!

First things first, go grab yourself some Gevalia® Coffee at Target (you know you already have a Target trip planned in the near future. Let’s face it, we all do!) The recipe is that much better when you use quality products, you know? I even have a coupon for you! (In fact, you can save up to $20 bucks on Kraft products at Target right now!)

You’ll want to grab some dark chocolate for this recipe. Preferably over 70% but I’ve used 52% and it was yummy. I’m going to explain the recipe and then there will be a printable below.

Start by chopping your dark chocolate bar and set it aside. Then heat 1/4 cup of heavy cream or whole milk with the powdered sugar on the stove top to just before boiling. Once there, remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir until it’s completely melted. Pour into coffee cup and fill it up with Gevalia coffee. Serve piping hot. See, it’s that easy!

The recipe can also be adjusted, for more or less chocolate. Just use one ounce of chocolate for every 1/4 of milk. Double or triple for multiple guests! Wouldn’t this one be fun to have for those lovely mornings with guests?

Here’s the full recipe and the printable so you can have it ready!
