My New Favorite Drink: Malt Choco Coffee

Now I’ve been known to make some really crappy things in the kitchen. I can’t help it, I like experimenting. But my latest concoction has become my favorite after meal drink. For those who know me, this might be a shocker, but it’s not alcoholic! After staring at the cabinets and being torn between coffee and a malted chocolate milk, I thought to myself, why not combine the two? To make it a bit easier I used instant coffee instead of French pressing one. The end result is a delicious version of a café mocha,  with a slight kick because of the malt, and also because instant coffee is very strong. Even a friend of mine, who is a coffee fiend, downed his own mug of it. Now, when I watch bad reality TV and cuddle under a blanket, I sip on one of these and feel so comforted. Maybe it’s the caffeine. Who knows, but it feels nice.

What you need:

Boiling water

Instant coffee (1 tbs)

Chocolate malt power (3 tbs)

Half ‘n’ Half (3 splashes)

Put instant coffee and chocolate malt powder in a regular sized coffee mug, fill 3/4 of the way with boiling water. Stir till everything is dissolved and fill to the top with half ‘n’ half.

How easy is that? If you care to, I’m sure that it would taste yummy with some peppermint schnapps in there for a more grown up version.
