White Hot Chocolate

White Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Vodka

A great way to warm up during the holiday season, this White Hot Chocolate hits the spot.



In thinking about Christmas, I always think of snow, but if this year’s weather is any indicator we won’t be having any! But, in the spirit of the holiday, I thought I would try out a White Hot Chocolate for a change of pace. Beautifully white and with just a hint of crushed candy cane on the top, this cup is festive and beautiful.  It was also very quick to make, with only heating the water being the prep time.

White Hot Chocolate



This is a perfect drink for those cold winter evenings. This is a great way to warm up during the holiday and Christmas season!






Our kids liked the virgin version, while the adults all enjoyed the boozy version. One thing to note, this drink can happen because of the low melting point of white chocolate which is the lowest melting point of all the chocolates.  Darker chocolates will not melt completely, likely leaving residues and an unevenly melted chocolate that wouldn’t mix like the white chocolate.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
