White Hot Chocolate
On a chilly night, there is nothing I want more than a warm cup of hot chocolate. I love traditional Homemade Hot Chocolate, but that gets dull day after day. That is where this White Hot Chocolate Recipe comes into play!
This White Hot Chocolate is a nice change in taste from regular hot cocoa and is total comfort in a mug. The creamy melt in your mouth drink is beyond easy to make with only a few ingredients.
Cozy up by the fire, turn on a Hallmark movie, blast the Christmas music, cuddle up with your loved ones, or make it after coming in from sledding. This would be fun to host a Hot Chocolate Bar with fun add-ins like peppermint sticks, cinnamon sticks, sprinkles, whipped cream, marshmallows, etc.
Whatever the occasion, this will warm up your soul while drinking it.
What is white hot chocolate made of?
This recipe has just a few ingredients that you may already have on hand! This recipe calls for milk, white chocolate, cornstarch, and vanilla extract. That is all it takes to make this delicious drink.
How can you tell if white chocolate has gone bad?
The quickest way to tell if white chocolate has gone bad by merely looking at it and smelling it. If it produces an off odor, then discard it. If it is off-color or in appearance, then don’t use it.
How to make White Hot Chocolate:
STEP ONE: First, place the milk, white chocolate, vanilla, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Whisk often over medium-low heat.
STEP TWO: Warm gently until the chocolate is completely melted. Make sure the mixture doesn’t come to a boil, because you don’t want to curdle the milk!
