White Chocolate Mocha Recipe
There are primarily two parts to the White Chocolate Mocha recipe. First, we need some chocolate. Take a glass, or an aluminum pan, and drop 4 tbsp of white chocolate chips on it. Now put it on your stove, and put the flame on medium.
There is one major advantage of making white chocolate sauce from chocolate chips. The chips are high in butter. And as a result, your final brew will have a glossy appearance.
For the second part of this recipe, you will need to brew one shot of espresso. If you prefer your coffee strong, you can brew two shots.
To brew Espresso, you will be needing the following ingredients.
First, you need to boil water. Try to stop when the water reaches the temperature of 185°F (85°C). Now, take your burr grinder, and grind some coffee with powder-like consistency. Take a filter, and place it inside the AeroPress drain cap. Rinse the entire AeroPress with hot water.
Now take your coffee ground and place it inside the AeroPress. Make sure the coffee bed is nice and evenly distributed. Take 120ml of hot water, and pour it inside the AeroPress. Take a spoon, and stir the mixture. Lastly, you need to put pressure on the plunger. Once the plunger is down, remove it from your cup, and your Espresso is ready.
If you do not have an AeroPress, or any other coffee maker at home (French Press, or Moka Pot), you can use the instant espresso powders from your local supermarket. However, one drawback of this approach is, the final brew will lack some of the essential aromas and oils that you would expect from your coffee.
Furthermore, you can brew espresso shots using French Press as well. People think the French Press is ideal only for brewing with the coarse coffee ground. But, there are ways you can use the French Press to brew delicious cups of Espresso at home.
White Chocolate Mocha Serving
When your Espresso is ready, pour it inside the melted chocolate. Now take a spoon, or a long chopstick and stir the mixture. Along with coffee, and chocolate, we are also going to add froth milk to the mixture. For this recipe, you do not want to add too much milk.
After you have added milk to the jar, put its lid on top tightly. Once you are sure that the lid is tightly sealed, shake the mason jar for 20-30 seconds. Do not overdo this step. Now open the lid, and place the jar in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. And this is it, you now have froth milk for the White Chocolate Mocha recipe.
In the next step, we are going to add the frothed milk to the mixture. You can add whipped cream on the top as an additional topping.
