Recipe for Cinnamon Hazelnut Praline Christmas Coffee

Cinnamon Hazelnut Praline Christmas Coffee

A warm and comforting Christmas coffee featuring cinnamon hazelnut-flavored coffee and hazelnut and caramel syrups
Prep Time10 minutes
Total Time10 minutes
Course: Drinks
Yield: 2 servings

Materials

  • 1 cup freshly brewed Cinnamon-Hazelnut flavored coffee
  • 2 Tbsp hazelnut syrup (recipe below) or store-bought hazelnut syrup
  • 1 Tbsp caramel syrup (recipe link below) or store-bought caramel syrup
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy or nut milk)
  • whipped cream
  • crushed hazelnuts for garnish

Hazelnut Syrup – optional

  • 1 cup raw or roasted hazelnuts
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Start by making the hazelnut syrup (unless you have some on hand)

  • As an optional step, you can toast your hazelnuts first in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes, let cool, and rub them in a towel to remove skins
  • In a saucepan, combine the hazelnuts and water
  • Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat and let simmer 15-20 minutes
  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a jar (discard, eat, or keep the hazelnuts for a topping)
  • In the same saucepan, combine the hazelnut-infused water and sugar
  • Heat until sugar dissolves completely, stirring frequently, and then let simmer for an additional 5 minutes to thicken slightly
  • Add vanilla extract
  • Cool completely, transfer back to the jar and you can store the hazelnut syrup in your refrigerator for up to two weeks

Prepare the Christmas Coffee

  • Take out 2 festive mugs and divide the hazelnut and caramel syrups between the two
  • Microwave for a few seconds to warm the syrups and stir
  • Warm the milk on the stovetop (or the microwave) until steamed but not boiling so it's slightly frothy
  • Brew a generous cup of strong Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee using a French Press, Moka Pot, or any method you prefer, and divide between the two mugs
  • Stir gently to combine the syrups with the coffee
  • Divide the milk into the two cups and give it a quick, gentle stir
  • Top the coffees with whipped cream and crushed hazelnuts
  • You can also add a bit of the hazelnut and caramel syrups for an even more festive presentation
