Campfire Mocha Caribou Recipe

Ingredients For Campfire Mocha Caribou Coffee:

  • Cups of coffee beans, ground to the consistency of your individual preference.
  • Water for boiling (enough so that you have enough water to submerge your coffee in)
  • An oversized mug
  • 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate bar, or milk chocolate bar or white chocolate bar or any type of cocoa you would like
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • For making campfire mocha, a large fire (you can use a stove or natural gas grill to do this but you will need to be very careful because it’s not as good for you). You can also use an oven but your food may catch on fire if you aren’t careful.
  • Campfire coals that are red.
  • Campfire utensils to boil water and remove leaves from chocolate bar. You may need a spoon or something else for this.
  • A small amount of drinking water and a large amount of coffee water to filter the mocha after brewing it.


1. Brew your coffee, however you like your coffee. In the meantime, melt your chocolate bar in a pot over fire or on top of stove for about 1/4th an hour or so.

2. Once your coffee is done brewing, add water to it and then add the cocoa powder in and stir so that everything mixes well. Make sure there are no lumps, otherwise you will taste them.

3. Pour into your mug

4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder to the mug and stir so that they mix well. You can also add a pinch of other spices too.

5. After the chocolate has melted, add it to your mug.

6. Add a little bit of hot water or hot coffee water if you didn’t use boiled water to filter out the leaves in your chocolate bar. You can also use cold water but it’s not as good for you as using hot water is.

7. Stir to mix everything together and then add 1 pinch of salt and stir once again to mix everything well together.

8. Add cream (you can use milk) if you wish to.

9. Drink up and enjoy.


Mocha caramel coffee can be served hot or cold, depending on your preference. It is very healthy, and it tastes really good. You can also use the same recipe to make a mug of hot chocolate instead of mocha caramel if you wish. I hope this Campfire Mocha Caribou Recipe will help you make some of the best coffee ever!
