I love Fall. Have I mentioned that? It’s my favorite (and Reinman’s too ’cause we’re married and all that) season. And ever since we’ve started having cooler days, I’ve been itching to make some homemade lattes. The only problem with that is last year my espresso machine died. Sad, I know.
Well, I found this awesome pumpkin spice latte recipe yesterday and she makes hers right on the stove! Problem solved!!
I didn’t have pumpkin, so last night I made mint chocolate lattes for me and the hubby. And then this morning I made a dark chocolate mocha and it is just so yummy that I had to share my recipe.
Dark Chocolate Mocha
Adapted from The Motherload
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups strong coffee (4 T coffee grounds to 1 cup of hot water or if you have a Keurig like we do I just fill up our reusable Keurig pod with as much coffee grounds as it’ll take and use the smallest cup size.)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (or any chocolate chips would work!)
- whipped cream
- chocolate syrup
- Pour all of your ingredients into a pot and heat over medium-high heat until coffee is hot, hot, hot!
- Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
Now if only I could find a moment of peace to enjoy this chocolately goodness.
