Our Signature White Hot Chocolate is a quick way to warm up a cold day or prepare for a special holiday treat – this might be just what Santa wants when he stops by your house!
You can use milk or what ever milk substitute you prefer – we love the rich combination of milk and whipping cream (or half-and-half).
Other than the minute or two it takes to measure out the ingredients, White Hot Chocolate requires only that you stir it while it heats. You can even make it in a microwave.
(See also our Hot Chocolate recipe for a more traditional chocolate – hot chocolate.)
