- If you want, you can even top it with whipped cream and garnish it with chocolate chips, crushed chocolates, caramel, etc.
- If you want your Chocolate Latte to have that frothy and light fluffy texture, then you must use a milk steamer.
- If you prefer a cold chocolate latte, then just follow the above-mentioned steps of brewing the espresso over the chocolate truffle and then add cold milk. Add a few ice cubes and enjoy.
- To convert it into a vegan recipe, simply use your favourite plant-based milk and vegan chocolate.
- Make sure you use 60 to 70 per cent dark chocolate to give it that strong flavour. Also, remember that the harder it will become to melt it easily. However, using 60 to 70 per cent dark chocolate in your latte gives you different health benefits, and is easier to melt when compared to super dark chocolate.
- If you don’t prefer using dark chocolate, you can use milk chocolate instead.
- Brew the espresso and add it directly on top of the chocolate truffle so that it begins to melt quickly. This way it becomes easier to mix everything.
- You can make use of a fork to mix the espresso and the chocolate evenly.
It is always suggested to consume your Chocolate Latte when served fresh. However, it can be stored for 24 hours in the mason jars. But remember that it might lose its taste a bit.
