💭 What is a Chocolate Cream Cold Brew?
Okay, so you know the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam from Starbucks? It's the super creamy, sweet, almost fluffy topping that floats on top of cold brew coffee. Well this is the chocolate version of it! It tastes just like the Starbucks Chocolate Cream Cold Brew.
Starbucks launched the chocolate counterpart to their super popular Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam as part of their summer menu (now part of the permanent menu!). It's sweet, creamy, and chocolatey.
- Heavy cream: The fat content in heavy cream will give your cold foam the über creamy texture that you're looking for.
- Milk: Using 2% milk will give your cold foam the correct flavor and texture.
- Vanilla syrup: You can use store bought (I like Torani brand) or homemade vanilla syrup. It's seriously so easy to make your own.
- Chocolate malt powder: This is they key ingredient in this chocolate cream cold foam. It (obviously) contributes the chocolate component of this cold foam, and also adds this really great malty flavor. Have you ever had Whoppers candy? It tastes like that! I read that Starbucks I found mine at my local grocery store, but you can always turn to Amazon if you can't find it locally.
- Cold brew coffee: You can use store bought or homemade. I always use homemade.
👩🏻🍳 How do you make a Chocolate Cream Cold Brew?
It's truly not as difficult as it may seem on the surface!
🛠️ How to make it without a milk frother
Like I talked about in my How to Make (Vanilla) Sweet Cream Cold Foam post, I really prefer to use a handheld milk frother. There's minimal cleanup involved, and it's quick and convenient. There are other options, however, if you don't have one!
First, you can put all of the ingredients in a bowl and just whisk it by hand. It takes a little more effort, but it will also get the job done.
You can also use a regular blender. Pour the ingredients into the blender and blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
The same thing goes for using an immersion blender: pour the ingredients into a jar or glass and submerge the end of the immersion blender into the liquid. Blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
