Although things are slowly starting to open back up where we live, I think something I would like to continue is experimenting with coffee at home. There’s nothing like having an expert barista make your coffee, but there’s so many things you do at home with your coffee maker to replicate some of these drinks and save money.
This recipe today is inspired (but not sponsored) by one of my favorite chocolate candies – Reese cups! The combination of peanut butter and milk chocolate has always been heaven to my taste buds, so when I was going through the pantry and saw a jar of peanut butter, I immediately thought of adding it to my coffee to make this delicious inspired latte.
- Peanut Butter
- Chocolate syrup
- Sweet Cream
- Vanilla extract (optional)
REESE CUP INSPIRED LATTE:
- Brew your coffee using your preferred coffee grounds.
- Mix 2 tablespoons of sweet cream and place it into the microwave for 20 seconds.
- Gently remove it and add in a 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter and a 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup (or to taste).
- Mix together so the peanut butter and chocolate sauce are adequately mixed in. Then use frother or frothing method until it’s a thick consistency.
- Pour coffee gently over ice. You can also pour it over ice in a separate cup, mix and then add to the cup you plan to use afterward. I do this to keep it from watering my coffee down.
- Gently add the frothed mixture to the mug on top of the coffee. The mixture should naturally seep down into your coffee, but if not you can also mix it until it’s all mixed in.
