A mocha drink with coffee, milk and chocolate is ridiculously easy to make, yet quite delicious. It's a perfect way tomocha make your coffee drink a little more exciting (and a little sweeter). We use an Italian “Moka Express” to make our “espresso” but you could use strong, regular coffee instead.

We like a lot of foam on top of our drink, however the milk won't foam if you put chocolate syrup in it. So we like to first make a hot milk chocolate mixture, then pour it in the cup and then add some fresh milk to the pan and whisk in order to get a nice foam.

1 serving:
  • 1 shot espresso (or a small amount of very strong coffee)
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Hershey's dark chocolate sauce
  • Dark Cocoa (or Cinnamon) to top with


Heat the milk up in a pan, whisk and add the chocolate sauce. Pour the espresso in a cup and add the hot chocolate milk. Possibly pour some new milk into the pan, whisk it vigorously over heat (or use an electronic frother) to create some foam. Top the mocha with the foam and sprinkle some cocoa powder on top.
