I love coffee. My day cannot start without my morning cup of coffee. You might say I’m slightly dependent on my morning caffeine kick… it’s ok, I’m the first to admit it. And sometimes you just want to mix things up and make something that’s extra fun and special.

This chocolate strawberry coffee is such a treat. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. While this is a great Valentine’s coffee for folks who love Valentine’s chocolate covered strawberries, it’s also great for those looking for different coffee drinks to make at home! If you love fancy coffees, this chocolate covered strawberry coffee is for you.

STRAWBERRY COFFEE VS. STRAWBERRY MOCHA

This drink is not officially a strawberry mocha as it is made with strong brewed coffee instead of espresso. A cafe mocha is prepared by mixing one part espresso with two parts steamed milk and chocolate powder or syrup. While delicious, most of us just make coffee in a regular drip pot…which is why I created this fun mocha-esque recipe as an easy at home fancy coffee. If you have the ability to brew espresso at home, you can substitute espresso for the coffee in this recipe too.
