Caffe Medici and Cappuccino Cream

I thought I should include some of my favorite non-alcoholic drink recipes.

If you want to spoil yourself, this is the coffee to do it with:) It's an Emeril recipe; although the real Caffe Medici recipe is supposed to be a secret. I really don't care, this one is so very rich, and great during winter:) Yum!

CAFFE MEDICI

Ingredients:
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
4 tablespoons sugar
4 (1--inch) pieces orange peel
24 ounces espresso coffee, hot
Cappuccino Cream, recipe follows
Cocoa powder, garnish
Grated bittersweet chocolate, garnish

Directions:
Divide the chocolate syrup, sugar, and orange peel into 4 coffee mugs. Pour about 6 ounces of the espresso into each mug and stir. Top with cappuccino cream, and garnish, to taste, with the cocoa and grated chocolate. Serve immediately.

CAPPUCCINO CREAM

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons cold brewed espresso, or strong regular coffee
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
In a large bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks start to form. Gradually add the remaining ingredients, beating constantly, until well combined and stiff peaks form. (Can be made up to 1 hour in advance, covered tightly and refrigerated)

Yield: about 2 1/2 cups
