My husband loves chocolate creamer, but gave it up for a low fat diet. I have created this version so he can still enjoy his morning coffee treat. As written this recipe gives more of a dark chocolate creamer, but you can increase the sugar if you like sweeter. The most important thing is to use a good quality ingredients. I made first with Nestle Cocoa Powder, my husband found it bitter with a strange texture. I made the second time with Giradelli's and the flavor and texture were greatly improved.
- Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
- Sift ingredients together.
- Add to coffe as desired.
A very rich, flavorful creamer. And low sugar to boot! I used Dutch cocoa I get from a local spice store, and it is dark. I am going to be making this to take in the motorhome on our "camping" trips. Made for Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe game.
I made this for myself using the Splenda and liked it so much, I made it using regular sugar for a coffee basket I was putting together for a church raffle. I'll be making this again (and again, and again!)
This is a GREAT make-it-yourself creamer. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be great to make up as gifts. Also, I plan to take it along on our camping trips. Thanks for sharing this, Erindipity.
