White Chocolate Coffee
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups Skim Milk
  • 4 oz chopped white chocolate (I used Ghiradelli)
  • 1⅔ cups strong hot coffee
  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp freshly ground cardamom seeds
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, warm the milk to almost boiling. Off the heat, stir in the chopped white chocolate. Take a moment to pause and reflect on the days’ events then continue to stir the white chocolate till it’s completely melted…your almost home free! Stir in the brewed coffee.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip the cream with the vanilla sugar. Vanilla sugar is actually really easy to make at home by taking 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and one vanilla bean. Using a sharp paring knife divide the bean in half and scrape out the seeds. In a small bowl combine the sugar and vanilla bean seeds using your fingers. Massage the sugar to allow the oils from the vanilla bean to release and perfume the sugar. Use the 2 teaspoons for this recipe and save the rest for later.
  3. Pour the chocolate infused coffee into 4 mugs and dollop each cup with the vanilla scented whipped cream. Sprinkle with the ground cardamom and sip immediately. Guaranteed to melt those winter blues away! Enjoy your weekend!
