Loco Hot Cocoa is a drink created in the famed 2000s Disney Channel show Hannah Montana. It is Robby Ray Stewart’s signature hot cocoa recipe. While the drink should probably be described as more of a mocha, it is a delicious and simple recipe.

The flavor of the drink was beautifully balanced. The hot chocolate taste was the most prevalent with the coffee flavor coming through in the end. This is exactly what I was looking for considering it was described as a hot cocoa. The whipped cream and cinnamon sugar on top added a richness and depth of flavor that enhances the drink. 

From someone who doesn’t like coffee a ton, this is the perfect drink to make for studying or before school. The caffeine from the instant coffee provides a nice boost of energy, the recipe is quick and easy to make, and the fact that it’s warm makes it a great option for winter.


  • One cup milk
  • Two tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • One teaspoon instant coffee
  • Whipped cream and cinnamon sugar for topping


In a mug, combine the milk, chocolate syrup, and instant coffee. Heat in the microwave for 1-1.5 minutes. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
