If you have been on this blog before, you know all about my “copycat” recipes. Especially Starbucks recipes like these two….

And…

Copycat Starbucks Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino    

 

Well, here’s my newest one.

It doesn’t have to be wintertime to enjoy a hot beverage. We drink coffee and tea year round so, why not drink a delicious flavored coffee drink when whenever we want. Because, sometimes we need a little bit more than a plain cup of coffee or tea.

It was time to come up with another hot drink recipe that does not include a holiday theme such as pumpkin spice or peppermint.

  This white chocolate mocha really hit the spot this morning when the temperature was starting to drop. 

 I got my son off to school and needed to start work but before that I wanted something sweet but didn’t want to start baking or even heating anything up. It was going to be a really busy work day and I had to get started. All I knew was, a plain cup of coffee with half and half was not going to cut it that morning. 

My son Josh had asked for some hot chocolate. so, that was easy enough to heat up the milk and add cocoa powder and sweetener.

My daughter Tori had been home from Law School the past weekend and she was baking up a storm. She bought white chocolate chips for one of her recipes. When I opened up the pantry they caught my eye and I remembered the White Chocolate Mocha I had a few weeks back at Starbucks. I meant to make it back then but forgot about it at the time. I grabbed the chips, some half and half, milk and a few other pantry ingredients. Bing, bang, boom, Starbucks White Mocha!

Wowza! It came out so good. 

Now, just a bit of info about the original recipe, Starbucks uses evaporated milk in their recipe. I just didn’t want to make or share a recipe having to use this since most of us would not use the whole can and I didn’t want to waste the rest of the evaporated milk as I don’t like to waste any food if possible. It would sit in my fridge until I thought of a recipe using a half can of evaporated milk which probably wouldn’t happen and then it would be thrown out anyway. Can you relate? 

This version was quick, easy and tasted just like the original.

Make a big mug for yourself soon. Enjoy every last warm sip!

Recipe note: This recipe is for one serving. Easily doubled or tripled for more servings.
