    Have you tried drinking coffee mix with hot chocolate?

    I tried and it is delicious! But, my heartbeat start to race. BTW, I don't drink coffee often, just once a week.Why did my heart beat race?

    I've been mixing them for years! Glad to know someone else likes it. I think the racing heart beat was a combo of caffeine and excitement as your taste buds discovered something new. Enjoy!

    Yes, I used to do that at work - it was wonderful.  I am highly sensitive to caffeine so I would imagine you are too.  So the caff. in the coffee and whatever little bit might be in the chocolate would do it.

      thanks. Problem is i don't know where to get decaf coffee in malaysia. Most supermarket sell 3 in 1 coffee, original black coffee, mocha, etc. No decaf. Sigh...

      Oh--you can't get decaf??  Gosh, that's unfortunate...

    All the time.  This flavor combination is called "Mocha."  (pronounced, Mo-ka).  It is my weekend treat.  Normally I'm a die-hard tea drinker, but on the weekends, I enjoy mochas.

    (It doesn't have to be specifically "hot chocolate," either--the way I make it, and they way they will make it if you order it in a coffee house is to put chocolate syrup in the mug before pouring in the coffee.)

    As far as your racing heart reaction, my younger daughter has the same problem you describe; it's an allergy or over-sensitivity to caffeine.  Go with Decaf, and you should be fine.

      thanks. Glad that i am not the only one allergy to caffeine. I will reduce the coffee powder.

      You can try reducing the amount of coffee, but you might have to switch to decaffeinated coffee instead--that's what my daughter had to do.

      @peachpurple  very simple when you make your coffee add 50 or 100gm salted or non butter +sugar according to your choice.

    I love that combo. Putting the herb chocolate-mint in with coffee is also a wonderful treat.

    The racing heart probably has to do with the boost of caffeine that the chocolate gives in combination with the extra sugar. As someone suggested below, decaf might be the way to go, or you could lower the amount of coffee you blend with the hot chocolate.

    I tend to have the same problem if I have too much coffee, too.

      Thanks. I think i will lower the coffee to 1/2 tsp and 2 tsp hot chocolate and 1/2 tsp milk. Will that be ok?

    Oh gosh I can't help myself. I love coffee and I love to mix it up a bit. I've tried different flavors like mint, vanilla, vanilla and cinnamon top with cream and hazelnut but not chocolate. Bet your bottom dollar I am trying this one. Yum!

    best mix is when you use white chocolate syrup with a shot of espresso.

    That's my go-to drink on a cold, rainy day or if I want to treat myself after a long, hard day of work.

    As for your heart racing, that's most likely the caffeine content. Both coffee and chocolate contain caffeine. Since you mentioned that you don't drink coffee too often, it could be that your system got a wee bit too much caffeine.
