A lot of milk but if you like it creamy this is a good recipe. I use half as much milk and this is a perfect basic recipe for a mocha latte. Read More

This was ok. I think there needs to be more chocolate syrup. Read More

I made this today to try it out. I have been interested in trying new coffee recipes lately! I halved the recipe and just used a strong brewed 1/2 cup or so of coffee. I realized at some point the best part of the good coffees is the steamed milk anyway in my opinnion. I also used lite chocolate syrup to cut back a little on the sugar. I topped with a little lite whipped cream and a tad of syrup drizzled on. Some cocoa powder dusted on would probably be good to. I made another recipe this week and the milk was warmed in a pot on med-low and then whisked briefly with a hand whisk. It worked just as well without the battery operated whisk if you do not have one. Thanks! Read More

This makes a decent mocha. It wasn't overwhelmingly awesome but pretty tasty. I followed the recipe and I added homemade whipped cream on top. I also dusted the top with cinnamon and nutmeg. Read More

I really liked this recipe! I did substitute a few things though. I really like my mochas to be creamy so I substituted the 2% milk for cream. I also mixed cocoa powder with it instead of chocolate syrup and then added a little sugar. I also added a little vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. (It does sound weird to add salt and I was a little skeptical at first but if you only add a little you can't really taste the salt it just brings out the flavor.) Great recipe! Read More

You can never go wrong with these ingredients! This is a great recipe but it is pretty heavy on the milk. You may need to play around with the ratios if you like your coffee stronger. My ideal blend is 1 cup of milk with two - 1.5oz shots of strong espresso and 2-3 generous tablespoons of chocolate syrup. If cost isn't an issue go for a good chocolate sauce rather than a syrup like Fontana Torani or Ghiradelli chocolate sauce. Read More

just what I needed on a cold snowy day - definitely did NOT want to have to leave the house for one. Skipped the whip but loved it. Read More
