Spicy Mocha With Chocolate Whipped Cream

Spicy Mocha with Chocolate Whipped Cream |

This Spicy Mocha takes the chill off with warming spice and is so much better than the local coffee shop version.


For the Spiced Mocha:

For the Chocolate Whipped Cream:


  1. Prepare the espresso maker as you normally would – set on the stovetop.
  2. In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, bring the milk, red chilies and cinnamon sticks to a simmer. Whisk well and cover. Remove from the heat and let steep for 15 minutes.
  3. Start your espresso.
  4. When the espresso is made and the milk has steeped, whisk in the espresso, sugar, and cocoa powder.
  5. Bring to a simmer and, while the chocolate espresso mixture melds together, make the chocolate whipped cream.
  6. In a large bowl, whip together the heavy cream and the vanilla extract with an electric mixture until it hits soft peak stage.
  7. Sprinkle over the powdered sugar and cocoa powder and mix thoroughly.
  8. Ladle the hot steaming spiced mocha into coffee mugs and top with a dollop of chocolate whipped cream.
  9. Enjoy immediately.
