Christmas Coffee

Christmas Coffee

(10 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 pot of coffee (10-cup equivalent)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch grated nutmeg
  • whipping cream for topping
Prepare pot of coffee.

In a medium sauce pan, heat water to a low boil. Add sugar, cocoa, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring back to a low boil for about a minute - stirring occasionally.

Combine coffee and cocoa/spice mixture and serve topped with whipped cream.


For the sugar, baker's sugar is the best to use because of its smaller, quicker to dissolve granules.

If you make too much, just jug it up and simmer in a saucepan to serve later. Merry Christmas!

A delightful holiday cocoa flavored coffee that falls somewhere between a regular cup of Joe and a fancy latte.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank casey for this recipe.

I made it with a packet of hot cocoa mix, but still added a little sugar. It tastes much stronger if you let it sit overnight in the pot. It also needs to be strained, because you get a lot of grit and sludge otherwise. I just strained it every time I poured a cup.

A little too sweet for me... cutting back on sugar next time.

I began making this recipe several years ago. It was such a hit that it became a tradition among the females of my family whenever we were together for the holidays.

Can you substitute Splenda for the sugar? This would reduced the carbs.

Instead of using unsweetened cocoa and adding sugar, can't you use regular cocoa (Nestle or something) and forget about the 1/2 cup sugar?
