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.
