About The Recipe

We’re back with another drink and, let me tell you, I have never been more excited to share something with you all! Cafe mocha’s have always held such a special place in my heart. I used to make homemade “cafe mocha’s” when I was younger.

Except I think mine were more Hershey’s chocolate syrup than coffee…but times have changed and my taste has evolved a little bit more!

The other day, I admit, I wasn’t feeling too good. My mom decided to make me one of these since we had some leftover chocolate sauce from our turtle pie, and if I’m being honest, it made me feel loads better! It was sweet without being too sweet, extra chocolate-y, and SO. GOOD.

I asked my mom to write everything down that she did so we could share it with all of you!

This is definitely one of those recipes where it can be a simple coffee or dressed up to a delicious after dinner dessert!
