The Recipe How-To
Now that we have all the ingredients for our Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola Recipe, it’s time to put them all together. This recipe is relatively easy, and only takes about 20 minutes to prep and another 20 minutes to cool.
Let’s get started!
Step 1: Making the Double Strength Hot Coffee
Brew two strong cups of coffee using double the amount of coffee you would typically use. You can also use instant coffee if you don’t have a coffee maker on hand. Once brewed, set it aside to cool.
Step 2: Preparing the Chocolate Mixture
In a separate saucepan, heat 2 cups of milk until it simmers, stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t burn. Add in two squares (1 oz) of unsweetened chocolate and 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, whisking together until the chocolate is entirely melted.
Next, add in 1 1/2 cups of sugar and stir until it dissolves. Then pour in your cooled coffee and stir it together with the chocolate mixture.
At this point, while still warm, you can sample the mixture and add more sugar or cocoa powder according to your taste preference.
Step 3: Adding Coca Cola
Stir in two cans (24 fl oz) of chilled Coca Cola and mix well.
Step 4: Assembling Your Drink
In a highball glass, add ice cream – we recommend vanilla or Brazilian ice cream – to cover the bottom third of the glass. Pour a ladleful of the chocolate-based mixture over the ice cream, filling up another third of the glass. Then top off your drink with some whipped cream, and garnish with a cherry if desired.
Step 5: Serving Your Drink
Once made, serve immediately! This recipe yields about ten servings.
Enjoy your frosty glass of Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola – for true decadence, enjoy it with a double fudge cake or a sheet cake.
For our vegan friends, you can still enjoy this recipe by swapping dairy milk with soy, almond or coconut milk, and using vegan-friendly whipped cream.
Substitutions and Variations
Now that you know the basics of making a delicious Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola, it’s time to spice it up! Thankfully, this recipe is very versatile, and there is plenty of room for improvisation.
First off, if you don’t have Coca-Cola or you’re not a fan of the drink, you can substitute it with Diet Coke or another cola brand. You can also try adding coffee instead of cola for a unique twist on the drink. Just make sure that the coffee is double strength hot, and adjust the sugar level accordingly.
If you’re looking to make this drink even more chocolatey, try using chocolate-based ice cream instead of vanilla. You can also add some cocoa powder to the mix to intensify the chocolate flavor.
To make this drink a bit healthier, try using low-fat milk or almond milk instead of whole milk, and use sugar substitutes like stevia or erythritol instead of sugar. You can also experiment with different flavors of ice cream for added variety.
For those who are feeling adventurous, feel free to experiment with other ingredients to create your own unique variation. Consider adding in Kahlua or other liqueurs for an adult version of the drink. You can even turn this recipe into a delicious slushie by blending everything together with ice.
In essence, the options are endless when it comes to creating your perfect Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola. The recipe’s flexibility and openness to innovation make it an excellent canvas for culinary creativity. Have fun exploring all the different variations and discovering your new favorite drink!
Serving and Pairing

Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola is a perfect treat for hot and lazy afternoons when you need a refreshing beverage to lift your mood.

This drink is such a crowd-pleaser that it goes well with almost any dessert on hand.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
One of the best things about the Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola Recipe is that it can be made ahead of time easily. Simply follow the recipe instructions and store your iced chocolate substance in an airtight container in your refrigerator. This will keep for up to two days before it starts to separate, so make sure you use it or freeze it before that happens.
When you’re ready to serve the iced chocolate coca, take it out of the fridge and let it sit for a few minutes to get to room temperature. As long as it’s not frozen solid, you can scoop some into a glass, add a few ice cubes, and enjoy. If you prefer it super cold, blend some ice cubes with the iced chocolate coca before pouring into a glass.
If you choose to freeze your iced chocolate mixture, make sure to transfer it to a freezer-safe container, leaving some room for expansion during freezing. This will allow you to store it in your freezer for up to three months without affecting its texture or flavor. To defrost frozen iced chocolate coca, place the container in your refrigerator overnight or let it sit at room temperature until thawed.
When reheating this recipe, you’ll need to be cautious not to overheat the mixture or break down its consistency. Heat on low heat while stirring slowly over double-boiler until just warm. You wouldn’t want’ end up with hot chocolate sauce rather than an iced-cold refreshing drink.
The Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola Recipe yields about 6-8 servings depending on cup size, so feel free to double or triple the recipe if necessary. Serve this delicious and unexpected treat at any gathering of family and friends and watch their delight as they try this fusion of flavors blended together harmoniously!
Tips for Perfect Results
As a chef, I’ve learned that any recipe can be elevated with just a few tips and tricks. Here are my recommendations for achieving perfect results with this Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola recipe:
1. Double the strength of your coffee
Since the coffee is an essential part of this drink recipe, it’s important to make sure it has enough flavor to stand up against the other ingredients. Double the strength of your coffee by using two tablespoons of coffee per six-ounce cup, and let it cool before adding it to the drink.
2. Use high-quality chocolate
The quality of the chocolate you use will directly affect the overall taste of your Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola. Therefore, I suggest using high-quality unsweetened chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa solids.
3. Chill your ingredients thoroughly
To make sure your drink stays chilled without getting watered down from melted ice, make sure all of your ingredients are thoroughly chilled before you begin putting your Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola together.
4. Experiment with different variations
While the classic Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola recipe includes ice cream, whipped cream, vanilla, and chocolate squares along with Coca-Cola and coffee, don’t be afraid to experiment with different variations to make it your own. You can try using different types of ice cream or even diet coke if you want a lower-calorie option.
5. Be mindful of sugar content
It’s no secret that this drink contains a lot of sugar between the Coca-Cola, milk, and sugar used in making the chocolate syrup, so make sure you’re mindful of your sugar intake and adjust accordingly or substitute some of those ingredients for lower-sugar options.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola is a delicious and refreshing treat that will impress anyone who tries it!
In conclusion, this Brazilian Iced Chocolate Coca-Cola recipe is a must-try for chocolate and coffee lovers who also seek something unique and refreshing.
