Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Torani Dark Chocolate Sauce
  • 2 shots espresso or strongly brewed coffe
  • 2/3 cup milk I used 1%
  • 1 tsp freeze dried raspberries ground into powder
  • 1 dollop whipped cream

Instructions

  • Squeeze Torani Dark Chocolate Sauce into a medium sized coffee mug. You can pool the chocolate sauce at the bottom of the cup or decorate the mug with a fancy drizzle.
  • Brew two shots of espresso into the mug with chocolate sauce. (I have an espresso machine and use the pods that are compatible with my specific brand of machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, preparing instant espresso according to the package’s instructions work in a pinch. If you prefer to not use espresso, very strongly concentrated brewed coffee could be used in place of espresso.)
  • If using freeze dried raspberries, pulse them into a fine powder by using a food processor or blender with a milling blade.
  • In a separate mug or glass, either steam milk or heat and froth milk. My favorite milk frother/warmer can be found here. (If you do not have a milk frother, I have had success with warming a small amount of milk and pulsing it in a single serve blender to mimic the bubbles of a foamy coffee house drink.)
  • Add steamed milk to the mug.
  • Add raspberry powder to the espresso, milk and chocolate. Stir to combine all ingredients.
  • Top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of raspberry powder. Enjoy!

Notes

** I wasn't able to locate Torani's raspberry syrup in stores, so I added raspberry powder to the mocha mixture itself. If you can, raspberry syrup will be more potent and give off a more raspberry flavoring than the freeze dried raspberry powder. I pulsed 1/4 cup of freeze dried berries into a powder and used this to mix into my Raspberry Mocha.
