Hot Toddy: Mocha MAPLE Coffee

Cold days call for hot drinks! I was flipping through the new book Hot Toddies (filled with all sorts of concoctions just begging for a snow day or three) and spotted this caffeinated wonder...


Mocha Maple Coffee

Reprinted with permission from Hot Toddies (Ryland Peters & Small)

Coffee and chocolate make perfect partners as this delicious drink proves. The addition of sweet, maple syrup flavored cream makes this an indulgent after-dinner drink.

2 cups freshly brewed hot coffee
¼ cup crème de cacao or chocolate syrup
½ cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
finely grated dark chocolate, to serve

Pour the freshly brewed coffee into 2 heatproof glasses and add half of the crème de cacao or chocolate syrup to each one.

Lightly whisk the cream and maple syrup together until the mixture is foaming and thickened slightly. Slowly layer the cream over the surface of the coffee using a flat-bottomed barspoon or a teaspoon. Sprinkle with grated chocolate and serve immediately.

Serves 2
