Winter is on its top. And as it is pacing up with passing time, cold waves are getting more and more strong. My craving for hot drinks is getting even stronger. It is so gratifying and heartwarming to get a hot cup of coffee or tea in shivering cold weather. It vanishes away all feel of cold and gives warmth instead. I never thought that Coffee could be so versatile in preparing different beverages until I came across various recipes of beverages made with coffee. Though making them, you require some special ingredients but they give a flavorsome taste to beverage. In this post I am going to make Chocolate coffee. Here the special ingredient I found was hazelnut syrup that gives special tang and aroma to coffee. Chocolate coffee gets prepared in few minutes and is instant source of warmth with lip smacking chocolaty flavor.
