Homemade Dark Chocolate Mocha

September 8, 2011

I love Fall. Have I mentioned that? It’s my favorite (and Reinman’s too ’cause we’re married and all that) season. And ever since we’ve started having cooler days, I’ve been itching to make some homemade lattes. The only problem with that is last year my espresso machine died. Sad, I know.

Well, I found this awesome pumpkin spice latte recipe yesterday and she makes hers right on the stove! Problem solved!!

I didn’t have pumpkin, so last night I made mint chocolate lattes for me and the hubby. And then this morning I made a dark chocolate mocha and it is just so yummy that I had to share my recipe.


Dark Chocolate Mocha

Adapted from The Motherload


  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups strong coffee (4 T coffee grounds to 1 cup of hot water or if you have a Keurig like we do I just fill up our reusable Keurig pod with as much coffee grounds as it’ll take and use the smallest cup size.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (or any chocolate chips would work!)
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate syrup
  1. Pour all of your ingredients into a pot and heat over medium-high heat until coffee is hot, hot, hot!
  2. Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!

Now if only I could find a moment of peace to enjoy this chocolately goodness. 😉

  1. Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    • They’re pretty yummy! You’ll have to give them a try sometime!

  2. Have you ever had sipping chocolate? No coffee in it, of course, but this is pretty much the best stuff ever:


    We do usually put in the cayenne, cinnamon, and nutmeg — so it’s got a little kick to it — but mmmmmmmmmmmmm…..

    • Isaac- we’ll have to give those a try!! They sound delish!

  3. That looks heavenly! Like the mug too!

    • It was heavenly! And chocolately…Mmm..

      I like the mug, too. It’s cute!

  4. I’ll be trying this one tonight! {gets warm just thinking about it}

    • Thanks for stopping by, Jenny! You’ll have to let me know how you like the mocha!

  5. That looks amazing Jill! I can’t wait to try it myself. I love reading your blog and it’s such a bonus with all the great recipes you share!

    • Thanks, Randali! I love reading your blog, too! 🙂
