Chocolate Coquito

Coquito is a favorite holiday tradition in Puerto Rico – much like an egg nog but without the egg and full of yummy coconut goodness. What pairs better with coconut than chocolate? Not much! This recipe is a traditional coquito that has been made chocolate. It is perfect to be served as an after-dinner drink, perhaps in a shot glass, depending on how much rum was put in it. This recipe will hold up well refrigerated and can last throughout the entire holiday season.



  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 can of evaporated milk
  • 1 Cream of Coconut can – 15oz
  • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 bar of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • ½ c. – ¾ c. of Rum



Mix all of the ingredients together

Serve cold.
