White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Latte

Something to warm us up on those chilly Fall days when the sky just weeps.
I was not gonna do this today. But it keeps raining... and it's chilly... and, well never mind. I just needed a bit of reinforcement. 
Sooo, I thought, why not?!
It's warm, it's comforting,
 and it will hit the spot!
I was right of course, it did indeed hit the spot after doing an errand in the rain. And it uses two of my favorite ingredients. White chocolate and a vanilla bean. So I knew I couldn't go wrong there. The only thing better would have been someone to share it with.
2 cups milk
½ cup strong brewed coffee
(Starbucks Vanilla flavored coffee)
½ cup white chocolate chips
1 vanilla bean
(contents of)
In a small saucepan heat the milk, coffee, and chocolate chips over medium heat. Meanwhile cut vanilla bean in half and scrape out the contents of each half with a spoon. Add to the milk mixture and continue heating till chocolate is melted mixture is frothy.
heavy cream
vanilla extract
Beat together till stiff and dollop on top of each latte serving.
Pour into 2 mugs, dollop cream on top and serve immediately.
Hope you all have a good evening!


  1. This is just what I want right now!!! Oh, my goodness that looks scruptious dripping down the glass! It's a good idea to have something to look forward to when you have to get out and trapes around in the rain. It's been like that almost all week here. :/

  2. It's weeping over here at the moment - but I'm smiling looking at this :))
