white chocolate mocha

Inspired by a "White Chocolate Soy Mocha" from Primo coffee, a new joint on the corner of Liberty and 5th. The drink was so good that I needed to eat it, frozen, with a spoon.

- Slowly heat 2.5 cups milk and add 1 cup white chocolate chips and mix until melted.
- Add 1/4 cup hot water to 5-6 teaspoons instant coffee then mix into milk.
- Beat 5 egg yolks with less than 1 cup sugar.
- Slowly mix in hot milk with eggs and bring back to heat.
- Take off heat once custard coats the spoon/spatula.
- Mix in 1.5 cups heavy cream, chill, add tablespoon vanilla mix in maker.

This was the dessert of the potluck. I made the base while the chicken was in the oven, so I couldn't let it chill over night, but the results were still excellent. Most people have not ejoyed truly fresh ice cream, so my friends were amazed at the results as I passed spoonfulls around from the unripened flavor.

Next time: more white, less coffee, more vanilla, less milk, more cream

Sounds very good. I'm assuming you used milk instead of soy - right?
