The holidays may be over but hot chocolate season is far from over in our home. It’s probably my own dang fault, but my girls are cocoa junkies. I can get them to do just about anything if I follow my request with “….and we’ll have hot chocolate afterwards…”.
So when it’s time to get our mugs out, it’s fun to switch things up a bit and I’m a total sucker for white chocolate. I know some of you have strong feelings against it, and I’m okay with that. But, if you’re one of the blessed souls that shares a love for it like I do, you’re in for a treat. This isn’t a new idea, but this was the first time I made it at home and turned out so good that I wanted to make sure I shared it with you.
All that’s needed for this white hot chocolate is some half and half, white chocolate chips, milk, and vanilla extract.
Heat them up, top with whipped cream and sit back and be satisfied that you didn’t just pay $4 at the coffee shop for it.
- 1 C half and half
- 3/4 C white chocolate chips
- 2 C milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Heat half and half until just below a simmer and stir in white chocolate chips until thoroughly melted. Slowly stir in milk and vanilla and heat to desired temperature. Serve hot topped with whipped cream.
