It has been too long since I have been here because my seasonal page is still showing Fall foods. I think that’s a problem to tackle another time though…Let’s just focus on getting through one post for now. I took a break from the blog scene for the past several months because it was turning into something stressful, and this is meant to be a stress reliever for me. My work schedule has calmed down though so I think it’s high time I picked up the virtual pen again. Despite the lack of posts, I have still been baking and cooking regularly so it was hard to decide what I should make the blogging comeback with. Ultimately, the unfortunate decision to stay up too late binge watching Hallmark movies that I have stocked up on my DVR made the decision for me: it would have to be none other than a delicious caffeinated treat.
Listen guys, I go to Starbucks more than your average human being. I always tell myself that I’m going to cut back, but then Monday comes around and my morning coffee from Starbucks is what gets me out of bed and on my way to work. I convince myself that Monday will be the only day, but then hump day rolls around and it just feels right to stop at Starbucks on the way to work. That’s really the last of it for the week…until Friday comes and I feel like I have to treat myself for making it to the last day! It’s a slippery slope, my friends. My addiction is so bad that when I first got married, I was so embarrassed that I would use the debit card from my solo bank account instead of our joint account to make my coffee purchases. I have a problem.
I have been working from home this week so I thought I would try my hand at making my own drink (laziness won out over the desire to put on real people clothes and go out into the world to buy coffee).
White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino
6-8 ice cubes
1/2 cup cold coffee or espresso (I used the leftover coffee from my morning brew)
1/4 cup milk or half & half
2 ounces white chocolate, melted
1 Tablespoon sugar
Whipped cream (I made my own by beating 1/4 cup of sugar with 1 cup of heavy cream)
Let the melted white chocolate cool a little and whisk it together with the coffee and milk to prevent chunks from forming.
Combine the white chocolate mixture with the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Top with whipped cream.
