Pretzel Milk Latte

Pretzel Milk Latte, pretzel milk adapted from recipe featured in the Momofuku Milk Bar book & from this pancake recipe.

makes 2 ~ 16oz lattes

For The Pretzel Milk

3 cups pretzels

1 1/2 cups milk, I used skim

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.  

Spread pretzels on pan in a single layer; bake for 10-15 minutes until darkened in color and fragrant (my oven took 13 minutes to achieve this).  Cool completely.

Transfer cooled pretzels to a bowl; pour milk over pretzels.  If necessary, crush a few times so milk covers pretzels.  Let sit for 10 minutes.  Strain milk, discard soggy pretzels.  

For The Latte

16oz fresh brewed tea or coffee

pretzel milk

sweetener of choice

2-3 chocolate chips per mug, optional

Heat the pretzel milk until scalding, transfer into a quart sized mason jar, cover with lid.  Wrap jar in a towel and shake vigorously to froth milk.  Shake until doubled in volume.    

Pour 8oz of prepared tea or coffee into 2 large mugs, sweeten to your liking if desired.  Top with frothed milk, divide in half between the two mugs.

Double Decker Chocolate Covered Pretzels optional, but totally recommended.
