How to Make a White Chocolate Mocha

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

A white chocolate mocha is another version of a standard mocha. With a kick of espresso, you get the hearty taste of white chocolate in your cup. Here is a recipe for a white chocolate mocha.


  • White chocolate powder (or white chocolate syrup)
  • Espresso
  • Milk
  • Ice cubes (for iced version)


  1. Measure out the chocolate. Follow the guide for measurements[1].
    • 12 oz cup: 2 tablespoons, 1/8 cup, 1 ounce
    • 16 oz cup: 4 tablespoons, 1/4 cup, 2 ounces
    • 20 oz cup: 6 tablespoons, 3/8 cup, 3 ounces

  2. Steam the milk. Place the steam wand straight down into the milk instead of in a diagonal position. The temperature for the milk should be between 140 and 150 degrees F. Anything over 160 may scorch a person's mouth.
  3. Pour espresso shots by tamping the ground espresso into the portafilter and locking it into the espresso machine. The aim time is between 17 and 23 seconds; anything longer than that, the espresso will cook itself and lose the taste.
  4. Pour the espresso into the coffee cup.
  5. Stir the powder/syrup and espresso together until the powder has dissolved or you don't feel any clumps.
  6. Pour the milk in.
  7. Top off the drink with whipped cream or any topping of your choice.

Iced White Chocolate Mocha

  1. Scoop the powder into the coffee cup.
  2. Pour espresso shots.
  3. Skip the steaming milk step.
  4. Mix the espresso with the powder in the coffee cup.
  5. Pour cold milk into the cup at a slow pace. As you're doing this, keep stirring so that the white chocolate is mixed thoroughly.
  6. Leave an inch (2.5 cm) or so of room from the top. Drop ice cubes into the cup.


  • White chocolate powder may be purchased at many specialty chocolate or coffee stores, and is widely available online.
  • Whipped cream is optional on mochas because of the chocolate taste.
  • For the iced version, be sure to drop the ice cubes in the drink by hand instead of pouring it in. This is to avoid any spilling, especially if the cup is full or you can pour into another cup filled with ice.
  • Espresso is hot out of the machine, be careful not to burn yourself!
