Two flavors that were meant to be together - chocolate and hazelnut! This sinfully good brew will have you going nuts for a second cup!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups hot Lions Brew Hazelnut, brewed strong

  • *1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut milk, (or milk of choice)

  • 1/3 cup chocolate-hazelnut butter

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • Whipped cream or marshmallows, for garnish

  • Chocolate syrup and/or melted nut butter, for garnish

  • Chopped hazelnuts, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Add 2 1/2 tablespoons of Lions Brew Hazelnut to the filter basket of your coffee pot, and brew with 20 ounces of water to make a strong brew.

  2. Add the brewed Lions Brew, coconut milk, nut butter, and dark brown sugar in a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Bring mixture just under a boil, stirring until all the nut butter melts. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

  3. Add in the vanilla and stir well.

  4. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream or marshmallows, drizzle with chocolate syrup and chopped hazelnuts!

  5. Serve and enjoy!

*We highly recommend using this brand of coconut milk as it is so thick and creamy which adds a nice consistency to the beverage! But feel free to substitute any milk of your choice.
