• 1 and a half cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
• A half tablespoon of vanilla extract
• 2 pinches of clove or 2 drops of clove oil
• A dash of nutmeg
• 3/4th cup of strong coffee
The first thing you do is make one cup of very strong coffee in your coffeemaker (we leave the strength of the coffee up to you). Prepare your double boiler while the coffee is brewing. Pour your semi-sweet chocolate chips into the double boiler and stir them continuously until they are partially melted. Slowly pour in the vanilla extract while stirring, and then add clove and nutmeg and stir until the chocolate is smooth and fully melted. Take 3/4th cup of the strong coffee and slowly pour it into the chocolate while stirring.
