Cafe Mocha (Chocolate Coffee) is easy to make at home and can save you money!
Lee and I love coffee all year, but especially in the colder months. We don’t really get it out too often because it is too strong for my liking. It is also way too pricey to get out regularly. That is why I decided to make my own Cafe Mocha (Chocolate Coffee) at home.
This recipe is so very simple. We are okay with the fact that is doesn’t have a shot of espresso, or whatever it is that Starbucks and other coffee shops put in their Cafe Mocha.
I am happy making it with regular coffee (that I can make to my liking – and so can you) milk, sugar, and cocoa. Oh, and whipped cream. It is yummy topped with whipped cream!
Now I do make the coffee in this recipe quite a bit stronger than I do if I’m just drinking regular ol’ coffee.
Again, the beauty of making it at home is that you control the strength of it. Oh yeah, and the cost.
Our version of Cafe Mocha (Chocolate Coffee) is a lot less sweet than the ones you get out.
This is just a matter of personal preference. If you like it sweeter then you can add more sugar.
We are trying to cut as much sugar out of our diet as we can, so that is why we try to put as little as necessary.
This homemade Cafe Mocha (Chocolate Coffee) can be made with regular or decaf coffee.
You can also use whatever type of milk you would like. The version in the photos are made with whole milk, but we make it using 2% also.
And remember, my version is not as sweet as what you would get out, So, if you would like it sweeter then just add more sugar.
