Tablea coffee

casaveneracion.com

My love affair with tsokolate tablea seems to be in full swing. Don’t ask me why — I wasn’t even an avid fan until recently. Now, I can’t get enough of the chocolate-y goodness. And after having consumed the tube of tablea that a friend gave me, I resolve to go to the Eastwood Mall gourmet market to buy more. I so wanted to try my hand at baking tablea brownies but, alas, all the tablea I had went into drinks and there was nothing left for baking brownies.

So, after the traditional hot chocolate drink (using a not very traditional method) and a milkshake now comes another hot drink — tablea with coffee.

Ingredients

  • tsokolate tablea (how much depends on how rich you want your drink), broken into pieces
  • 1/2 c. of milk (full cream for best results but if you must you can substitute skim milk)
  • 1/4 c. of very strong hot brewed coffee

Instructions

  1. Place the tsokolate tablea in a cup. Pour in the milk. Heat in the microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds to a minute. Use the back of a teaspoon to crush the pieces of tablea if not melted. Stir in the coffee. Sprinkle cocoa powder, if you like (I like!). Sip slowly or drink in one gulp whichever works for you.

Quick Notes

If you substitute instant coffee granules for the brewed coffee, increase the amount of milk to 3/4 cup. Dump and stir the coffee granules into the cup after microwaving the tablea and milk.
