Hot chocolate vs coffee, who should win? I do not know the answer to that, but why pit the two against each other when you can have both? So, here is the easy hot chocolate coffee recipe.

The Origin Of A Dynamic Duo

The recipe that we are making today is based on a drink that is made by brewing coffee with chocolate.

Somewhere once upon a time, a man who was tired of drinking basic coffee decided to mix his coffee with some cocoa powder.

On that day, this drink was created. Sounds like this guy was an innovator beyond his time.

For our recipe, we will not brew any coffee, but we will combine these two magnificent drinks in our own way, but I digress.

This drink has become very popular in my household recently because of its refreshing taste, and its ability to warm up the body on cold winter days.

Sipping My Hot Beverage

I enjoy the warmth and sweetness of hot chocolate, and this also applies to coffee.

It warms me up inside and makes me feel cozy. Every sip I take is so sweet, and I can’t help but smile. “On the contrary, coffee should not be sweet”.

Speak for yourself, because if I am drinking coffee, you best believe it will have a ton of sugar in it. That is one of the reasons that I love this hot chocolate coffee recipe so much.

Caffeine In Hot Chocolate Vs Coffee

Caffeine is a stimulant that is found in coffee and hot chocolate. It is a psychoactive drug that can cause insomnia, anxiety, and other side effects.

The caffeine content in hot chocolate is much lower than the caffeine content in coffee. If you are like me, then this is a good thing.

Caffeine is cool, whenever you need an extra boost of energy, but I try not to intake too much of it.

On the other hand, this also means that you will need to drink more cups of hot chocolate to get the same amount of caffeine as you would from one cup of coffee.

In other words, if your goal is to load up on as much caffeine as possible, then the coffee will be your best bet.

Can You Make Hot Chocolate In A Coffee Maker?

You most certainly can make hot chocolate in a coffee maker. We will not need to use a coffee maker for our recipe, but I will tell you how to use it anyway.

If we are looking at hot chocolate vs coffee, you will create the one the same way that you would create the other. The only difference is that you will use ground cocoa instead of using ground coffee.

Is Mixing Hot Chocolate And Coffee Good?

The answer is yes. These two drinks are incredibly good together. In fact, when you combine the two beverages, it is called mocha.

Is Mocha A Coffee Or Chocolate?

As mentioned before, mocha is both coffee and chocolate. in this case, the chocolate we are using is hot and perfect for a cold day.

The Hot Conclusion

The conclusion for the drinks that we are discussing is that they are both delicious drinks. They are both made from similar ingredients, but they have different flavors.

Of course, these two beverages having different flavors is what makes it so fun to combine the two, and make something extraordinary.

I do not even want to have a conversation about hot chocolate vs coffee because what is the point of that discussion when you can combine the two together?

Then, when you taste the two things combined, you will experience complete happiness.
