When I’m in the mood for a decadent hot beverage as the days get chillier, this is will be it. I don’t know how I came across this recipe, I wasn’t looking for hot beverage recipes, but I’m so glad I did!
There is not much to it, just brew coffee as you normally would. While that’s happening, set a small pot on the stove to melt butterscotch chips together with your milk. Mix and enjoy this creamy caramel flavored coffee.
If you can’t find butterscotch chips (I haven’t seen them in Guatemala), you can substitute for white chocolate chips and add a few drops of caramel flavor (you can find it at Blossom in Zone 10, Guatemala). I’m not making this up, I searched for butterscotch chip substitutes and this is the best alternative I could find, since butterscotch chips are actually a white chocolate compound base with butterscotch flavoring.
