Mochalate with Nutmeg Hot Beverage Recipe

Today I am sharing another vintage recipe with all of you from the late 1960's that was given to me by my great aunt. If you love chocolate and coffee...I think you will love this hot beverage recipe. It is perfect for the fall and winter time when it's cooler & cold outside and you want a nice hot beverage to drink. This recipe makes 4 servings.

Mochalate with Nutmeg Hot Beverage Recipe

1 oz. square unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups freshly made hot coffee
1/4 cup whipped cream

Chop the chocolate and place in a double boiler pan over hot boiling water. Stir in the sugar and 1/2 cup of milk. Slowly cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate has melted. Throw in the pinch of salt and pour in the remaining milk. Turn heat down to low and slow cook mixture, stirring often over low-medium heat. Remove from heat and beat with an electric mixer until frothy. Pour in the freshly made hot coffee and then pour into a beverage pitcher.

Pour Mochalate into cups and garnish with a spoonful of whipped cream before serving.
