A sweet drink to warm you up:Coffee meets cocoa.






For this drink you will need:

2 chocolate pieces. We used Hershey bars.
Whole bean coffee or ground coffee. We used whole bean, but ground coffee will also work.
Milk
1 coffee mug
1 pot
French press

Start off by taking your chocolate bars and placing them in a small/medium pot. Stir them over medium heat. This will cause the chocolate to melt. If you are wanting more of a rich cocoa flavor, just add more chocolate pieces in.

Next, you'll want to take your milk and add that in with the chocolate. You'll want to add in just one cup of milk. Stir both the milk and chocolate together until it becomes smooth.  Allow this mixture to slowly come together. Turn the heat down to low/medium heat.

While those two ingredients are coming together work on preparing your coffee.
If you are using whole bean, this is where you'll want to take a teaspoon of your beans and add them into your coffee grinder.  If you are using regular ground coffee, simply scoop up one teaspoon of coffee. Take your coffee grinds and add them into your french press. Next, take your milk and pour it over the coffee grinds 

Let the coffee and milk mixture sit in the french press for about 2-5 minutes.
Press your coffee and milk down and pour it into your mug and enjoy!

***Note***
We tried this recipe using a pour through coffee maker, 
but the milk was too thick to trickle through the coffee filter.
