Chocolate and coffee lovers, this one’s for you!

This recipe is perfect for making ahead of time and storing for later use. To make ahead of time, prepare the chocolate coffee cream as directed, then transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

When you’re ready to use it, simply reheat it on the stove over medium heat until the cream is warmed through, stirring occasionally. If you prefer, you can also reheat this cream in the microwave on high for 30-second intervals until warm.

If you have leftovers that you want to store for later use, allow the chocolate coffee cream to cool completely before storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, simply reheat as directed above.

For best results when reheating, use a small saucepan and stir constantly to prevent scorching or separating. Additionally, be sure to let the cream cool slightly before adding it back into your hot coffee or cocoa mixture.

Is it too early for dessert? Not with this decadent chocolate coffee cream!

When making this chocolate coffee cream recipe, I’ve found that a few tips can make a big difference in the taste and texture. Here are my top tips for ensuring you get perfect results every time:

1. Use high-quality ingredients: The quality of your ingredients will greatly impact the overall flavor of this recipe. I recommend using high-quality cocoa powder, instant coffee, and dark brown sugar to give it a rich, chocolatey taste.

2. Warm your cream: When you’re heating up the cream for this recipe, be sure to warm it up gently over low heat. If you overheat the cream or bring it to a boil, it can result in a grainy texture.

3. Let it cool before mixing: After warming up your cream, let it cool off for a few minutes before adding it to the other ingredients. Mixing together hot and cold ingredients can cause them to separate and ruin the consistency of the cream.

4. Use a whisk: To ensure that all ingredients are fully combined and no lumps remain in your mixture, use a whisk when mixing everything together.

5. Don’t skip the vanilla extract: A touch of vanilla extract can add more depth to the flavor of this chocolate coffee cream recipe. Even if you think it’s only a tiny amount, trust me – it makes a big difference!

By following these tips, you’ll be sure to get perfect results every time you make this delicious chocolate coffee cream recipe.


Before concluding this recipe article, let me just address some of the frequently asked questions to clear any doubts that you may have while making this delicious chocolate coffee creamer or any variation of it. So, let’s dive into the FAQ section below.

Does chocolate milk make good coffee creamer?

Adding chocolate milk to coffee is a controversial topic among coffee lovers, with some praising it as a creamer and others finding it too overpowering. It’s recommended that you give it a try to determine if it suits your taste buds.

How to make easy coffee cream?

To make a creamy coffee, grab a quart-sized (32 oz) mason jar and mix in some half and half, sweetened condensed milk and a drop of vanilla extract. Once you’re done, grab the lid and screw it tightly to the jar. Shake the jar well until everything is nicely mixed. If you prefer, you can use a whisk to mix the ingredients as well. Once you’re done, cover the jar and store it in the fridge. It can last for up to two weeks.

How do you add chocolate to coffee?

Looking for a simple way to add a delightful and rich chocolate taste to your cup of joe? Consider adding 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder directly to your coffee grounds before brewing. Give it a good mix, and after brewing, you can enhance your beverage’s smooth, creamy flavor by adding some cream. The end result is a scrumptious and satisfyingly sweet coffee that reminds you of a grown-up version of hot cocoa.

Do coffee and chocolate go together?

For ages, coffee and chocolate have been a heavenly duo, bringing out the best in each other. The intensity of the coffee’s bitterness harmonizes perfectly with the sweetness of the chocolate. And, the resulting taste is nothing less than exquisite.

What chocolate is best to mix in coffee?

For an impeccable taste, try dark chocolate with a high amount of cocoa. A 99.6% cocoa content is sure to do the trick. If you prefer some contrast in texture, you can try adding cocoa nibs to your dark chocolate. These flavors complement espresso perfectly. The bitterness of dark chocolate brings out the nutty and chocolaty undertones that are characteristic of Brazilian coffee beans.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this recipe for chocolate coffee cream is a must-try for all coffee lovers and chocolate enthusiasts. With its simple ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions, you can indulge in the rich, creamy taste of homemade chocolate and coffee anytime.
