Ready In:


  • 14 - 13 cup espresso
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • steamed milk
  • cream


  • Brew espresso. In a coffee mug, place 1 teaspoon of unsweetened powdered cocoa, then cover a teaspoon with honey and drizzle it into the cup.
  • Stir while the coffee brews, this is the fun part. The cocoa seems to coat the honey without mixing, so you get a dusty, sticky mass that looks as though it will never mix. Then all at once, presto! It looks like dark chocolate sauce.
  • Pour hot espresso over the honey, stirring to dissolve. Serve with milk & cream.

    Great cup of coffee! just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate. Easy to make. I used a microwave milk frother for some foam. Made for Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe game.

    Espresso, dark chocolate cocoa and a touch of honey all smoothed with milk. It's a delightful brew that is very pleasing. If it has a fault is that it makes too small a cup. Kudo's Mandy.

    This was good, but I have a sweet tooth so next time I'll add more honey. Will make again, thanks. Made for Beverage Tag.

    This is a lovely treat Mandy. I loved the use of honey and the unsweetened cocoa powder in the espresso. It gives a nice dark depth to the coffee, not to sweet, just right. Thanks so much for sharing.

    "oooh is this good" came out of my mouth at the first sip. A delicious coffee drink :)


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
