Why I Love This Recipe
Here is a wonderful traditional holiday drink. The key is all about the chocolate.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 tablespoon Dutch-process cocoa powder (1/2 ounce; 15g), plus more for dusting
1 teaspoon (4g) sugar
Tiny pinch kosher salt
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
6 ounces (175ml) hot black coffee
1 1/2 ounces (45ml) Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur)
1 tablespoon (15ml) 2:1 simple syrup
Combine cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and heavy cream in a mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer. Beat, using the whisk attachment, electric beaters, or a whisk, until dry ingredients are evenly incorporated and cream forms soft peaks.
Combine hot coffee, Frangelico, and simple syrup in a prewarmed mug. (You can prewarm it by pouring hot water into it, letting it stand for 1 minute, then draining.)
Using a spoon, dollop whipped cream on top of coffee and top with a dusting of cocoa powder. Serve right away. (Note that you may have more whipped cream than the mug can accommodate; feel free to add more as you drink, or use some for the next round.)
