In case you didn’t know, I have a recipe series called Done in 60 Seconds that is designed to take literally 1 minute or less. The idea is based on the fact that not everyone has the time (or desire) to make a fancy 3-course dinner or a rockin’ bowl of oatmeal every morning. So I’ve come up with a few super quick recipes to add a little spice to your day. This can be anything from a quick and innovative snack to a twist on an morning staple (like this coffee recipe).


1-2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (with or without alkali is fine)
2 tsp Da Vinci Hazelnut or Raspberry Syrup (or any flavor)
8-10 oz brewed coffee
milk of choice (I like almond or coconut milk for this recipe)

*Note: If you don’t have these syrups, simply substitute 1 tsp sugar + 2 tsp water for a Dark Chocolate Truffle Coffee.


1. Place the cocoa powder in the bottom of a mug and add the syrup (or sugar and water). Mix with a spoon until a paste is formed, adding a few drops of coffee, as needed, to help form the paste. Don’t add too much liquid at this stage or it will be difficult to dissolve the cocoa. The resulting paste should be silky smooth like the center of a chocolate truffle. It should look like this:

2. Pour in the coffee and add milk thicken. Stir with a spoon until the paste has dissolved into the coffee and enjoy! You may need to stir every few sips to prevent the chocolate from settling but it’s well worth it for this rich chocolately mug of coffee!

    Novel idea! Who doesn’t have 60 seconds to make a treat or nosh. “Done in 60 Seconds” caught my eye. I like it.Looking forward to a few more “quick” ideas. Certainly one of your first posts-The Peanut Butter Hotdog- would fall into this category!

    On Rachael Ray’s talk show, I’ve seen her have a few people on and do a 1 minute recipe showdown before. I don’t remember what she calls it. I like all your title options. Done in 60 seconds is a fun one. Probably the only thing I can make in 1 minutes is a pb & honey sandwich! ;)

  6. Denise says:

    This looks so good. Another great idea. I like the titles “1-minute recipe” “Done in 60 seconds” and “60 second eats”.

    • Nick says:

      Too many options, I can’t decide! I want the title to be good but also as short as possible so it’s not too cumbersome (and fits in the title at the top). Decisions, decisions….

  7. Janie says:

    Thank you for that. It’s my new obssesion :D

    Love the idea. Here are my early morning pre-coffee title ideas:

    -Minute Made
    -1 Minute Minis
    -1 Minute Makeovers
    -Quick Quisine
    -1 and Done
    -Fast and Fabulous
    -Fix me in Sixty…seconds

    I’m afraid that is the best I have pre-coffee…perhaps post-coffee too.

    • Nick says:

      Oooh, “Minute Made” – I like that…reminds me of juice.

      “Quick Quisine” and “1 and Done” – I like those too!

      Keep them coming Juli! Drink up!

    “1 and Done” is my favorite

  11. Anne says:

    call me boring, but I really like “1 minute recipes” because it is what it is, literally

    made a peanut butter version of this this morning with peanut flour, dutch cocoa powder, stevia and soy milk as my add-ins to my coffee :)

    • Nick says:

      Nice, I did the exact same thing 2 days ago. I need to experiment a few more times to get the right ratio’s but I think it’s a winner-in-the-making!

      Thanks for the recommendation, I’m still undecided!

    Hello sir, I have a new website that lists peanut butter calories and I see you make a lot of recipes. If you don’t mind, I would like to list some of the nutrition content of some of your recipes (with credit given to your website). Is this fine with you?

  13. Bren says:

    yes, yes, and yes, pls! :) chocolate and raspberries always, always work!

  14. Angelica says:

    Wow, this is really rich looking. Really delicious looking truffles although I must say that raspberry coffee truffles is a very interesting combination
