Do you love going through the drive-thru ordering a fancy coffee? Perhaps you love to go into your local Starbucks and order a coffee and read the paper and enjoy a few minutes of paradise.
Calling all white chocolate fans! The Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha is a drink that is for you! There are so many different varieties of the Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha available these days. You can buy the milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, extra dark chocolate and even white chocolate. The fun thing is that each new chocolate brings a new flavor. The white chocolate is made up of butter, sugar and milk solids and has a velvety smooth consistency.
It’s no wonder it’s such a popular flavor to add to coffee!
The white chocolate mocha is one of Starbucks original espresso beverages. It has stood the test of time and customers come back for it again and again! One of the best things about this delicious coffee drink is that it is so simple to make at home. It consists of only 4 ingredients and once you have those on hand it’s easy to whip up.
There are two ways to create this drink. The easiest way is to purchase the white chocolate mocha sauce. It can be found at Starbucks, World Market or have it shipped to your door from Amazon (Fontana White Chocolate Mocha Sauce, 63 fl oz ). The second method is to use white chocolate – bars or chips.
You can find both at your local grocery store. Grab some espresso (either instant or regular), milk and some whipped cream and you on your way to the perfect white mocha!
If you don’t have an espresso maker you have options. You can use Instant Espresso (Instant Espresso, 2 Oz, 2 Oz), this works well, you can make extra strong coffee, or you may want to invest in an inexpensive Bialetti Moka Express 3 Cup Espresso Maker 06799, the Bialetti Moka pot can help you make espresso coffee on the stovetop without an expensive coffee maker. Italians have been making their espresso this way for almost 100 years.
