Boozy Hawaiian Mocha Coconut Hot Chocolate
ounces good quality chocolate bar ( dark 65-75%, or milk) roughly chopped
Tbsp brown sugar ( can add more if a sweeter drink is desired)
ounces coconut milk beverage ( carton not can)
ounces freshly brewed hot coffee
ounces Koloa Coffee Rum
Optional : 1 ounce of Koloa Coconut Rum (1/2 ounce per drink)
Lightly toasted coconut shavings
Finely chopped macadamia nuts
Combine the chopped chocolate, brown sugar and coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
Pour one and a half ounces ( shot glass/jigger size) of the Koloa Coffee Rum into a large ceramic or glass cup or mug then top with 3 ounces of hot coffee. Stir then top with half of the coconut milk mixture stirring well to combine. Repeat with other mug/cup.
Quickly top with a generous amount of whipped cream, a sprinkle of toasted coconut, chopped mac nuts and chocolate shavings. Sip and enjoy!
To make the drink with more of a coconut kick add in the optional Koloa Coconut Rum.
You can make this recipe with chocolate chips it will have a slightly different flavor and the chocolate chips take a little longer to melt than the chopped chocolate. I also find that melted chocolate chips aren’t as smooth as chopped
To make this non-alcoholic just omit the rums.
You can use any milk you like for this, I prefer using coconut milk from a carton. I use unsweetened but if you would like your drink to be a little sweeter use sweetened.
I like my hot chocolate to be a little on the less sweet side so I go with a darker chocolate around 65-75%, if you prefer sweeter go with a milk chocolate.
You can use either store-bought whipped cream or homemade. I find that store bought whipped cream tends to melt a lot faster than homemade.
