Hey, don’t throw things at me, we all have our opinions.
My opinion of white chocolate? Not a good one. It’s just too sweet for me.
So, making this coffee seems silly right? Why make something you don’t like?
Yeah, true, but I can’t leave things alone.
I WANT to make it, but I won’t want to drink it, right?
Well, here’s what I decided to do.
1/2 white chocolate + 1/2 chocolate= Black & White Latte
Actually, it started out black (chocolate chips), white (milk and white chocolate chips), but it comes out all brown, and I totally wanted to call it Okapi Coffee.
See, I love the Okapi. I think they are adorable.

I wasn’t sure that coffee named after a wild beast would be all that appetizing.
So, Black & White Latte it is.
Black & White Latte (aka Okapi Coffee):
2/3 Cup Milk
3 Tablespoons White Chocolate Chips
3 Tablespoons Chocolate Chips (I used semi sweet, you can use dark or milk as well)
Strongly brewed coffee
Dash of vanilla
Warm milk in a double boiler, or make one out of a pan and dish that you have.
That’s what Mommy’s Kitchen (see her recipe for a better photo) did, and what I did as well.
While milk is heating, make your coffee.
Add chips in and stir until melted.
I, as always, added in a dash of vanilla. I can’t help it. I have a vanilla obsession. I’m not ashamed.
Then add 1/2 of your milk mixture to your mug, finishing with enough coffee to fill, but allowing room for whipped cream.
Garnish as desired!
There you have it,
Okapi Coffee, ahem, Black & White Latte!
