Our luscious mocha latte recipe is for special occasions. Its full of calories and tastes all the better for it.
Start by grating your favourite chocolate of choice, in this case dark chocolate. The chocolate is used to garnish the drink. The next job is to prepare the double cream. Whisk this well until soft peaks are formed. Then decant into an icing bag.
Prepare some espresso coffee – I used a moka pot. Whilst the coffee is brewing, heat some milk – in the video I used a milk frother because it is fast and easy to clean. Alternatively, as no froth is required, heating in a saucepan or microwave would be fine too.
Now all is set to make the coffee – start with the espresso. Top up with hot milk leaving enough space for a cream topping. Before adding the cream, add two heaped spoonfuls of your favourite hot chocolate. Give this a really good stir to dissolve.
Next is the cream. I used an icing bag, but squirty cream would work really well too.
Finish by garnishing with the grated hot chocolate.
Enjoy in moderation!
