Now, imagine elevating that experience with a concoction so rich, so decadent, you’d swear you were savoring a luxury dessert in a quaint European cafe. We’re talking about none other than the Dutch Bros Hazelnut Truffle Mocha.

How to make Dutch Bros Hazelnut Truffle Mocha

The Dutch Bros Hazelnut Truffle Mocha is a delicious specialty coffee drink offered by Dutch Bros Coffee, a popular coffee chain primarily located in the western United States. This drink typically consists of a blend of espresso, chocolate, hazelnut flavoring, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream.

What You’ll Need

  • Espresso: 2 shots for that rich coffee zing. Can’t wake up without it, right?
  • Milk: 1 cup, and feel free to get jazzy with it. Whole milk, almond, oat – your call, your masterpiece.
  • Hazelnut syrup: 2 tablespoons of sweet, nutty bliss.
  • Chocolate syrup: 2 tablespoons to chocolatify your concoction.
  • Whipped cream: Because what’s indulgence without a little crown of cream?
  • Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder: For that final, fancy flourish.

Instructions

  1. Brew the espresso: Start with brewing those lovely espresso shots if you’ve got an espresso machine. If not, a stovetop espresso maker or even strong, very fine coffee in a pinch will do the trick. Remember, it’s all about that deep coffee essence.
  2. Heat and Froth the Milk: Warm up your milk until it’s hot but not boiling – nobody’s a fan of scorched milk. If you’ve got a frother, now’s its time to shine. Froth it up until it’s smooth and foamy, like a cloud in your cup.
  3. Mix in the magic: Pour those beautiful espresso shots into your cup. Now, drizzle in the hazelnut syrup and the chocolate syrup. Give it a good stir. We’re talking a whirlpool of flavors here, melding together in harmony.
  4. Add the Milky Way: Gently pour in the milk, holding back the foam with a spoon. Why? Because you want to mix it evenly first. Then, scoop that foamy goodness on top.
  5. Crown it: Top it off with a generous swirl of whipped cream, like you’re adorning it with a tiara of deliciousness. Sprinkle over your chocolate shavings or a dusting of cocoa powder for that chef’s kiss finish.
  6. Serve and Savor: Take a moment to admire your creation. Go on, you’ve earned it. Now, dive in and let every sip take you to your happy place.

What to serve with

Let’s be real; a drink this divine deserves an equally splendid sidekick. 

Mini Pastries

Imagine nibbling on a flaky mini croissant or a dainty Danish with each sip of your mocha. There’s something about the combination of rich coffee and buttery pastry that feels like you’re cheating on your diet in the most luxurious way possible. And who could blame you? Life’s too short not to indulge once in a while.

Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Hold up – bacon with coffee? Oh, you bet. Wrap some juicy dates in bacon, bake them until they’re crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and boom! You’ve got a snack that hits all the right notes. The salty-sweet combo with that nutty, chocolatey mocha backdrop? Chef’s kiss, my friends.

Fresh Berries

Looking for a lighter side? Fresh berries are the way to go. The natural sweetness and slight tartness of strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries can cut through the richness of the mocha, making every sip taste like the first. Plus, they’re pretty to look at. Win-win.

Chocolate-Dipped Anything

Okay, if we’re truly living our best lives here, why not double down on the decadence? Try chocolate-dipped shortbread, pretzels, or even orange slices for a citrusy twist. It’s like pairing your mocha with a round of applause – because honestly, chocolate on chocolate deserves nothing less.

Mini Cheese Board

Yes, you read that right. A mini cheese board can be a delightful companion to your Dutch Bros creation. Think about it: a bite of creamy brie or sharp cheddar, followed by a sip of hazelnut truffle mocha. It’s like they were meant to be. Throw in some crackers, nuts, and maybe a bit of honeycomb, and suddenly, your coffee break feels like a mini getaway.

Biscotti

Let’s not forget the classic coffee companion – biscotti. These crunchy, dunkable delights are practically begging to be dipped in your mocha. Almond, chocolate chip, or traditional anise-flavored, they’re like the reliable best friend of coffee accompaniments. Always there, always delicious.

Let’s tweak this recipe together, ensuring your mocha adventure is as smooth as your coffee blend.

Espresso

No espresso machine? No problem! A strong brew of your favorite coffee can stand in. Aim for a dark roast to mimic that rich espresso vibe. A French press or aero press works wonders here, giving you that concentrated kick that starts this magical journey.

Milk

Cow’s Milk didn’t get an invite to your party? Cool, let’s mix it up. Almond milk slides in as a nutty understudy, while oat milk brings a creamy sweetness that’s hard to beat. Soy milk? Sure thing, it’s creamy and dreamy with a hint of sweetness. Each of these brings its own little twist to your mocha, so you might just discover a new favorite!

Hazelnut Syrup

If hazelnut syrup is playing hard to get, or you just fancy shaking things up, maple syrup or caramel syrup can jump in. They bring their own unique sweetness and depth, adding an intriguing spin to your mocha experience. And if you’re feeling adventurous, a dollop of hazelnut spread dissolved in a bit of hot water or coffee makes for a decadent swap.

Chocolate Syrup

Got no chocolate syrup? Grab some cocoa powder, and let’s get crafty. Mix it with a little sugar and hot water to create your own syrup – easy and customizable! Plus, you get to control the sweetness, making your mocha truly your own. A piece of dark chocolate melted down does the trick too, adding an extra layer of luxury.

Whipped Cream

If whipped cream isn’t on today’s menu, fear not. A dollop of coconut cream offers a tropical twist, while cashew or almond cream adds a subtle, nutty finish, both swooping in to crown your mocha in style. And honestly, they’re so good that you might not ever look back.

Chocolate Shavings or Cocoa Powder

Alright, so you’re out of chocolate shavings. Cocoa powder dusted on top still gives that sophisticated touch, or for a bit of adventurous texture, crushed nuts or a sprinkle of ground coffee beans can add an unexpected crunch.

Final Thoughts

You just made your very own Dutch Bros Hazelnut Truffle Mocha without the need to leave your cozy kitchen. This drink isn’t just a coffee; it’s a mood, an experience, a slice of joy.
