Details of this Viennese coffee recipe for 2 people.

8 minutesvery easylow


  • 1 cup (150 ml) strong hot coffee
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) of liquid cream
  • 3 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons of Irish cream or cocoa liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Whipped cream
  • Cinnamon (optional)


1 Put a saucepan to heat over medium heat.

2 When hot start pouring the liquid cream and then add the three tablespoons of chocolate chips.

It is better if the chocolate has a cocoa percentage of maximum 80% and the rest milk, because if we use very dark chocolate the coffee would get bitter. Also, the chocolate shavings can be achieved by grating a hot chocolate tablet.

3 Add the sugar and stir for a couple of minutes until all the chocolate shavings have completely melted.

4 Take the saucepan off the heat, add the Irish cream and stir a little more.

5 Finally, pour the hot coffee into the final mixture.

6 Serve in a glass and garnish with a little whipped cream. Optionally, you can also sprinkle a little cinnamon powder on top of the cream.
