White Hot Chocolate

If you’re looking for dessert in drink form, look no further. This is an ultra-sweet ultra-delicious white hot chocolate. It’s actually very simple to make – I found it when I was looking online for a recipe that I could make with ingredients I had on hand. Most recipes I found included heavy cream, which I’m sure is delicious and thick and wonderful. But I didn’t have any. And the thought of splitting 3 cups of cream (not to mention the white chocolate) between 4 people as the recipes suggested seemed like a bit much. So I used skim milk. Nothing like trying to lighten up a decadent drink. The end result wasn’t incredibly thick, but it sure did taste great. Almost too sweet, and if you know me, that’s not something I say often. I couldn’t even drink a whole glass of this, but what I did have was amazing. So my advice to you is to make this. It will turn a cold snowy evening into something wonderful. But serve small portions.


White Hot Chocolate


1 1/2 cups milk
a little less than 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate *(the better quality chocolate, the better the drink will be. I used cheap white chocolate chips and it was still good)
1 tsp vanilla


Heat milk over medium heat, stirring to prevent burning. Place the rest of the ingredients in a blender. When the milk is hot, pour it in the blender and mix until smooth and frothy. Serves 3, depending on portion sizes.

  7. I've never thought of making white hot chocolate before, but this sounds good! I just bought a few bars of white chocolate because I thought I'd make some peppermint bark, but I never did, so I'll make this instead. 🙂

  8. Oh goodness, I have a serious weakness for this stuff (made with vegan white chocolate, of course.) It's especially good with a tiny drop of peppermint extract, too!
