Recipe: White hot mocha

By: Donna Dooher and Claire Stubbs
We think of our White Hot Mocha as a modern-day temptress with old-fashioned values. The sublime marriage of espresso and brandy tempers the sweetness of the white chocolate and gives this warm drink a touch of seduction.

Ingredients
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 3 cups (750 mL) 2% milk
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 35% cream
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) brewed espresso coffee
  • 2 fl oz (60 mL) brandy


Directions
1 Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds.

2 Combine the vanilla bean, vanilla seeds, milk and cream in a stainless-steel saucepan and bring to boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat, take out the vanilla bean and whisk in the white chocolate, espresso and brandy.

3 Pour the mocha into warm café au lait bowls and dip with biscotti.


Fills 4 'cafe au lait' bowls.
