Spoil yourself, a sweet coffee drink, made with chocolate and attitude! Unique with chocolate and cloves. Preparation is a bit unusual. You steep the coffee grounds with the other ingredients instead of traditional brewing.
- 8 cups water
- 4 ounces ground coffee
- 4 ounces brown sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 cloves, whole
- 1 square semisweet chocolate
- Boil water in a saucepan, then add cinnamon, cloves, sugar and chocolate. When the mixture comes to a boil, skim off foam.
- Reduce the heat to a simmer, then add coffee.
- Steep for 5 minutes then serve.
This was very good. A very rich, dark, not to spicy cup of coffee. I cut this down to 1 serving. I used instant coffee so I wouldn't have to strain this. I thought it would be too sweet but you really couldn't tell there was a lot of brown sugar in there. Nice for a cold winters day.
Anna, I must confess, I have made this several times since you have posted it...hot and cold. Words can't describe how much I have enjoyed it. It is excellent served both ways. A nice dark, deep, robust, rich, spicy cup of coffee. Oh course I garnished it with whipped cream and ground cinnamon. Thanks so much for posting this tasty treat that I will make often my friend.
