1 Line bottom and sides of 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging 2 opposite sides of pan; grease foil with butter.
2 In 2-quart nonstick saucepan, mix 3/4 cup of the milk and the espresso powder. Stir in white baking chips. Heat over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Spread in pan.
