My Favorite Things #6

Starbucks Coffee, need I say more! Especially on days like today when I wake up feeling as though I haven't even gone to bed yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm having a GREAT day, but my body is trying to tell me otherwise. I have found that my SMALL addiction can have its toll on the checkbook so I bought an espresso maker on sale at Target and found some GREAT recipes for making my own favorite drinks from Starbucks. I thought I'd share a couple=)

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA
2/3 cup whole milk
6 TBSP white choc. chips
coffee/espresso (I found the cheapest Starbucks coffee is at WalMart)
whipped cream

Mix milk and white choc. Chips to bowl and heat until melted. Meanwhile, make coffee or espresso as directed by machine. Mix the milk and melted chips in a mug with the espresso and top with whipped cream. *This says to split and that it makes two, but I use a pretty big mug and drink the whole thing myself =)*

CARAMEL MACCHIATO
milk
espresso
vanilla syrup
caramel sauce

In regular-sized coffee mug add steamed milk w/ some vanilla syrup (about 1oz.). Add freshly brewed espresso and drizzle w/ caramel sauce.
