10 for 10::part 4

If you had chanced to pass our house a few weeks ago, the activity on our front porch would have put questions in your mind. A coffee shop of sorts was set up in the last available natural light. Mugs, milk, whipped cream, and various props littered the steps. Keturah arranged and shot pictures while I dumped and stirred things together. Occasionally someone stepped outside to watch the proceedings. It was a good arrangement….especially for one of our observers.

Needless to say, he stayed around for the rest of the evening in hopes of another case of spilled milk. 🙂

White Hot Chocolate 


White Hot Chocolate

Serves 1 to 2

1 cup milk

2 oz. good quality white chocolate

Pinch sea salt

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Whipped cream (optional, for garnish)


Combine the milk, white chocolate, and salt in a large mug. Microwave for 1 minute and stir well.  Stir in the vanilla.  Serve hot, garnished with whipped cream.

If you like yours frothy use an immersion blender or carefully pour the hot chocolate into a blender and process until frothy.

Homemade Espresso Truffle Latte

This will take care of your chocolate cravings for awhile. 🙂


8 oz hot milk
1 oz semisweet/bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 oz espresso
whipped cream, to serve


In a mug, whisk together hot milk and chocolate until chocolate has been fully incorporated and mixture is smooth. Top off with shots of espresso and a dollop of whipped cream, then serve immediately.

If you don’t have an espresso machine use a 1-2 ratio–1 part strong coffee to 2 parts steamed/frothed milk.

See you back next week for the last installment of 10 for 10. I’ll share my favorite fall drink–Pumpkin Spice Latte and a wonderful summer drink–Java Chip Frappe.
