  • Strong brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup of high quality chocolate pieces or chips. (Bittersweet or Milk, your choice)
  • Whipping cream

Have your hot brewed coffee on hand. Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt it over a pan of boiling water, stirring continuously, Make sure only steam comes in contact with the bowl, if water touches the bowl the chocolate will set and be of no use. Beat the whipping cream until it becomes thick (not stiff).

Line up a couple of mugs or heatproof glasses. Half fill with coffee, add the melted chocolate, until about 3/4 full, stir vigorously.

Top up with the thick cream.

Find yourself a comfy chair and enjoy.
