Classic Hot Chocolate is one of our favorite warm beverages. But in our recipe for Brazilian Hot Chocolate, we’re giving this beloved drink a twist by blending in the bold flavors of coffee, rum and orange. Try this rich and creamy drink after the kids have gone to bed.
Brazilian Hot Chocolate
– 6 oz. milk
– 2 oz. good-quality semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, grated
– 2 oz. strong black coffee
– 1 shot rum (optional)
– 1 strip orange peel (about ¼ by 3 inches)
Place the frothing disk in your Capresso froth PRO and ensure it is securely snapped inside the bottom of the frothing pitcher. Add milk to the frothing pitcher and press the Hot button. After three minutes, add the grated chocolate. Replace lid and wait for the frother to automatically shut off. Pour hot chocolate into cup and add black coffee and rum. Garnish with a strip of orange peel, twisting the strip to release its oils just before adding it to the cup.
