White Hot Chocolate
So, I don’t really like chocolate that much.
I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s true I can take chocolate or leave it. It’s not something I need to have or crave. I like it. It’s not like Brussel sprouts or cabbage or anything, but I just don’t care about it very much. I never did. Even as a little kid. But, there was one thing I did like. White chocolate. Every year, my Mom made sure the Easter Bunny brought white chocolate for my basket. Some years, she had to work pretty hard to find it, but it was always there.
And, that’s pretty much still the case. I prefer white chocolate to milk/dark chocolate.
And, I also like a good cup of cocoa on a cool night.
With the cool weather FINALLY taking us over and a late lunch under our belts, Big Daddy and I came home from the store with popcorn and the ingredients to make white hot chocolate. Then, we settled in, snuggled up and had an impromptu movie night!
- 2 c milk
- 2 c fat free half and half
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 oz white chocolate
- whipped cream
- Add milk, half and half, vanilla and chocolate to a saucepan. Slowly warm the drink over medium low heat, being sure to stir to keep the chocolate from sticking to the bottom. Do NOT allow to boil! Warm and stir until you’re happy with the temperature and then serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Instead of the cookie, you could holly jolly up this recipe by serving with a candy cane or peppermint stick!
