Annacia at, inspired me to make this coffee, but I slightly tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. The name of the coffee describes it best!

Ingredients For chocolate covered cherry coffee

  • 2/3 cup
  • 1-1/4 tsp.
    instant coffee (see *note)
  • 1/2 tsp.
    sugar (or add 1/4 teaspoon of saccharin sweetener)

  • reddi wip, or cool whip (to garnish the coffee)

How To Make chocolate covered cherry coffee

  • 1
    In a coffee cup, heat water and coffee in the microwave until hot. (I heated mine for 1 minute & 15 seconds, in a 1,000 watt microwave oven. Or heat the water and coffee on top of the stove in a small saucepan.)
  • 2
    Add the sugar and stir.
  • 3
    Now add the chocolate covered cherry, stir well to dissolve. After the chocolate has dissolved, remove the cherry from the cup.
  • 4
    Top the coffee with desired amount of Reddi Wip, or Cool Whip.
  • 5
    Place the cherry on top of the whipped topping and serve.

    6.) *Note: Now a days when making this coffee, I use a decaffeinated coffee. But if using ground coffee, use 2 teaspoons per each 2/3's cup of water in your coffee maker. Also, I have found that not all of the chocolate from the chocolate covered cherry, dissolves completely in the hot coffee. You may still see bits of chocolate floating in your cup.
