Coffee and chocolate often are served side by side. This elegant drink combines them in a single, satisfying cup. I use a cinnamon stick for a swizzler or a peppermint stick for the holidays.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or less to taste)
  • 14 cup half-and-half or 14 cup light cream


  1. In a small saucepan combine coffee, chocolate pieces, and sugar.
  2. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until chocolate is melted and sugar is dissolved.
  3. In another small saucepan heat half-and-half or light cream until steaming, stirring occasionally.
  4. Pour coffee mixture into a mug.
  5. Add warm half-and-half.
  6. If desired, stir in additional sugar to taste.
  7. Makes 1 (12-ounce) serving.

I have made this so many times it is almost my daily coffee. The only little change was I heated the half-n-half in the microwave - so simpler. I use sweet 'n low for the sugar. Absolutely delicious and what a treat for an evening coffee. Thanks for sharing with us all Annacia.

Oh so yummy!!! Made as directed except I just heated the half-and-half up in the microwave. Next time I think I would cut back on the sugar for my taste, as the chocolate is already sweet. Thanks Annacia for a wonderful morning treat!!!!
