All About Chocolate: Spiced Chocolate Tea

Check out Peter’s newest chocolate creations!

Haystacks (shredded coconut enrobed in chocolate) – my favorite:

Peter rolling ganache centers on a slab of chilled granite to keep them cold:

He also kept running his fingers under cold water to chill them, too. Every time his fingers hit that freezing cold stream of water, his teeth would chatter.

The things you do for chocolate.

Enrobed ganache centers:

He made raspberry and strawberry truffles, and let me tell you, dear reader … they were GOOD.

Speaking of chocolate!

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Chocolate Chip Week on THIH. I promised a bonus chocolate chip recipe at the time.

What could this possibly be? A few hints:

Yep, I gave it away in the post title (does anyone actually read those?): Spiced Chocolate Tea.

Even though I occasionally drink coffee, I always look to a hot cup of tea (green or black) to jump start any day or soothe any worries. Shops sell chocolate-flavored coffee – why not chocolate tea? Besides, there’s something about wrapping chilly fingers around a warm mug to make you feel like your best self.

Shall I make a cup for you, Peter?

Spiced Chocolate Tea

  Prep Time: 2 minutes

 

Ingredients (1 serving)

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 black tea bag or 1 tablespoon loose black tea
  • 4-5 chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar (or to taste – optional)

Instructions

Place teabag in mug. Add chocolate chips and cinnamon. Add sugar (if using).

Mix water and milk. Heat in small saucepan over low heat until bubbles form. Pour into mug. Mix until chocolate is melted. Top with whipped cream and more cinnamon for an extra special treat.

  1. Does it come in milk-free version, oh dear Jessie? If I substitute the half cup milk for water will it be too bad? I want to try this soooo much but I hate milk 🙁

    1. Hi Christa! Of course you can use water instead of milk 🙂 I used skim milk in my cup, which a lot of people think is like milk anyway 😉 Or if there’s something else you like better (soy milk, almond milk, etc.) you can try that. I’m not sure if any of those are available there? Let me know how it goes!

  2. I never would have thought about putting chocolate in tea but it does sounds really good – especially with spiced tea! I’ve gotta try it =)

  3. Oh wow, this chocolate tea sounds heavenly. Too bad my idea of chocolate tea now reminds me of the “Smooth move” tea from Yogi, that we sell where I work. Ugh.
    LAst thing I had with chocolate? MY square of Lindt’s 90% dark last night. Yes, I like it REALLLY dark. I’m a wierdo!

    1. I’m a weirdo, too! The darker the chocolate, the better 🙂

      I haven’t heard of that tea, but it sounds … odd.

  4. peter is a chocolate master!! These look amazing in so many ways.

  5. This is the second chocolate tea recipe I’ve seen recently. There was also this one which actually doesn’t have tea in it as is more like hot chocolate, really.
    But I like the idea of combining cocoa and tea.

  6. You two are geniuses…I am trying this today! It’s chilly out and this will be the perfect thing to warm up with. Last thing I ate with chocolate was a dark chocolate-covered graham cracker…sooooo good. 🙂

    YUM!! Just tried this! Not usually liking sweet or chocolaty drinks (I know …. I’m weird!) This was just the right amount of sweet and chocolate! Delicious!! I used Truvia in place of the sugar, but might try leaving it out totally next time. I will be making this ALOT during this holiday season!! Mmmmmmm. Thanks for posting!

    1. I’m so glad you liked it! 🙂
