To make my Swiss White Chocolate Coffee Recipe, you will need the following recipe ingredients:

  • 3 cups of hot coffee
  • 1/2 cup of half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of espresso powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Maraschino cherries for garnish

Note that the use of espresso powder and granulated sugar is optional, but it surely brings more character to the overall taste. You can also add more sugar depending on how sweet you want your coffee to be.

The half-and-half and whole milk are important ingredients, as they help balance out the richness brought by the white chocolate. I recommend using MilkBoy Swiss Chocolate Flavored Whole Milk. It’s a full-fat milk infused with Swiss chocolate that gives a great kick to your white chocolate coffee.

When shopping for white chocolate, make sure to choose high-quality brands like Lindt, Hershey’s or Nestle. The higher the quality of white chocolate, the better your Swiss White Chocolate Coffee will taste.

The recipe also calls for whipped cream and maraschino cherries for garnish but these ingredients are optionals, and you can always substitute them with caramelized white chocolate or dark chocolate shavings, depending on your liking.

The Recipe How-To

Step 1: Preparing the White Chocolate Sauce

To begin, you must first prepare the white chocolate sauce. In a small saucepan over low heat, add 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of whole milk. Next, stir in 1 ½ cups of white chocolate chips and continue to stir until everything has completely mixed together into a smooth consistency. Make sure not to let the mixture boil as this can completely ruin the texture.

Step 2: Making the Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Now that the white chocolate sauce has been prepared, it’s time to work on making the Swiss meringue buttercream. First, you need to make the Swiss meringue. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together 4 egg whites, 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water while whisking constantly until the mixture becomes warm to the touch and all the sugar has dissolved (around 5 minutes).

After the sugar has dissolved, transfer the mixture to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment and mix on high-speed for about five minutes or until stiff peaks begin to form. Reduce the speed to medium and add in 1 cup of unsalted butter (room temperature) one tablespoon at a time.

Once all the butter has been added, quickly whisk in 1 teaspoon of espresso powder and 1 tablespoon of brandy for some extra flavor. Finally, mix in half-a-cup of your prepared white chocolate sauce (keep extra white chocolate sauce aside for garnishing).

Step 3: Assembling your Swiss White Chocolate Coffee

Begin by preparing 4 cups of hot coffee using your favorite method. You can use regular coffee or even espresso if you prefer something stronger.

Add 3/4 cup of your prepared white chocolate sauce and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder into the coffee and stir well. Now, you have chocolate coffee!

Next, add half-and-half or cream to taste, stirring until well combined.

Pour the white chocolate buttercream into a piping bag and pipe a dollop onto each cup of coffee. Next, garnish with some whipped cream, chocolate chips, some more of your prepared white chocolate sauce, and don’t forget the maraschino cherries.

Step 4: Serve and Enjoy

Your hot Swiss white chocolate coffee is now ready to serve. Not in the mood for hot coffee? No worries! Follow this same recipe but substitute the hot coffee for cold brew or iced coffee for a chilled Swiss White Chocolate Coffee. Happy sipping!

Substitutions and Variations

One of the great things about this Swiss White Chocolate Coffee Recipe is its versatility. Here are some substitutions and variations you can try to personalize your coffee to your liking.

– Milk: You can use any milk of your choice, such as soy milk or almond milk, instead of whole milk or half-and-half. Keep in mind that using a thinner milk will result in a less creamy texture.

– Chocolate: Experiment with different types of chocolate to achieve different flavors in your coffee. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips can be used instead of white chocolate chips or try adding chocolate sauce for more depth.

– Sugar-Free: If you’re watching your sugar intake, use sugar-free syrup instead of regular syrup, and instead of whipped cream, try using swiss meringue buttercream which is just as delicious without the extra sugar.

– Boozy: For the adults who like to indulge in their coffee drinks, add 1-2 tablespoons of brandy or other liqueurs like Kahlua to give it an extra kick.

– Toppings: Don’t be afraid to get creative with toppings! Try using caramelized white chocolate, chocolate shavings, maraschino cherries, or whipped cream for a decadent touch.

With these substitution ideas and varying choices, you’ll be able to elevate your Swiss White Chocolate Coffee Recipe to suit your personal preferences and truly make it your own.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

As a busy barista, I know that time is of the essence. That’s why I always recommend making this Swiss White Chocolate Coffee recipe ahead of time whenever possible. It’s easy to make a large batch and store it in the fridge for up to three days.

To make sure your coffee stays fresh and yummy, keep it in an airtight container. When reheating, use the microwave or a pot on the stove to heat things up until they’re steaming hot.

It’s essential to remember that while reheating your coffee, cream and milk can quickly curdle. To avoid this problem, take your coffee out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes before reheating it. This way, you’ll get the same rich and creamy taste as the first time.

Pro tip: For an extra decadent experience, add whipped cream or caramelized white chocolate on top of your reheated Swiss White Chocolate Coffee. It transforms the drink into something truly indulgent.

Overall, making this coffee recipe ahead of time is an excellent solution for those who are short on time but still want to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee without having to rush through their morning routine. Whether you’re sharing with friends or keeping it all for yourself, you can now enjoy your Swiss White Chocolate Coffee any day of the week without sacrificing any of its qualities.

Now that you’ve got the basic recipe down, I’m here to share a few tips to help you perfect this delicious drink.

1. Use quality ingredients: To achieve the best taste, it’s important to use high-quality ingredients such as Milkboy Swiss White Chocolate or Lindt White Chocolate Bars. The better the quality of your ingredients, the better your drink will taste.

2. Heat the milk properly: When heating milk for the recipe, make sure to heat it on low heat and stir frequently. If you overheat the milk or heat it too quickly, it can become burnt and have a negative impact on the taste of the coffee.

3. Make whipped cream from scratch: Whipped cream is an important part of any coffee drink, and making it from scratch is easy and far more delicious than store-bought whipped cream. For extra flavor, add 1 teaspoon of espresso powder to your whipped cream mixture.

4. Don’t skimp on the chocolate chips: The recipe calls for white chocolate chips, and while you may be tempted to skimp on them, don’t! They add richness and depth to the drink that are essential for getting that perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness.

5. Top with maraschino cherries: Maraschino cherries are a fun addition to this recipe that make it stand out from other coffee drinks. Don’t skip them! They add a tasty burst of sweetness and a pop of color when placed on top of your whipped cream.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to make a swiss white chocolate coffee recipe that tastes just like it came from your favorite café. So go ahead and give it a try – I promise you won’t be disappointed!


Now that you know how to make an amazing Swiss White Chocolate Coffee, it’s time to address some frequently asked questions. This section will address any queries and concerns you might have concerning the ingredients or the brewing process. So, take a look at these FAQs for more tips and insights on this recipe.

What goes well with white chocolate in a coffee?

When it comes to coffee flavors, nutty notes with hints of cocoa go well with dark chocolate that has a strong taste. On the other hand, fruity, floral and berry-like coffee flavors mesh well with milk or white chocolates that are less intense as they have lower cocoa content.

Does white chocolate taste good in coffee?

If you’re a fan of white chocolate, you’ll want to pair it with Colombian, Costa Rican, or Yemeni coffees. These types of coffee have fruity and floral tones that complement the sweeter, milder flavor of white chocolate. For a more balanced taste, it’s recommended to use light or milk chocolate that contains less than 55% cocoa content. The pairing of these chocolates with the right coffee can be a delightful experience for your taste buds.

What is in white chocolate mocha?

Indulge in our top-notch white chocolate creation made with our signature espresso, creamy white chocolate sauce, and velvety steamed milk topped with a generous swirl of sweetened whipped cream.

Can you add a shot of espresso to a white chocolate mocha?

For those who prefer their coffee on the bolder side with a reduced sweetness level, there’s an easy way to customize the recipe. By tweaking the amount of milk and white chocolate sauce, you can create a less creamy and less sweet beverage that caters to your liking. In my personal experience, I’ve found that adding extra shots of espresso, reducing the amount of milk and white chocolate sauce, could further enhance the overall flavor profile.
