This creamy coffee hot chocolate is made with real chocolate and instant coffee, topped with a delicious homemade coffee whipped cream. Caffeinated hot chocolate is the perfect drink to start off your day!


  • Coffee Hot Chocolate:
    • 1 cup milk
    • 3 tablespoons milk chocolate chips
    • 3 teaspoons granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
    • 1 rounded teaspoon instant coffee powder or instant espresso powder
  • Coffee Whipped Cream:
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
    • ¼ tsp instant coffee powder or instant espresso powder


  1. Make the coffee whipped cream: Using a small whisk, whip the cream, sugar and instant coffee powder together until stiff peaks form. Add on top of the hot chocolate and enjoy!


  • Add more instant coffee for a stronger drink. If you want to give your drink an extra caffeine boost, you can add as much as 2 teaspoons of instant coffee powder per serving.
  • Don’t boil the hot chocolate. Adjust the heat if necessary, but don’t let the mixture come to a boil on the stovetop.
