White Hot Chocolate

whc1

I’ll be the first to admit, my tastes can be a bit.. eclectic at times.

Friends have described my style as “hipster business casual.”

I like flipping between the top 40 and alternative music stations on my car radio.

I love the show Smash but I hate the main character. (Ew, Karen, you’re such a diva.)

It’s the brink of summer, and I’m craving hot chocolate… but not how heavy Swiss Miss instant can be.

Fortunately, I have this wonderful White Hot Chocolate to satisfy my craving without the heavy feel of milk or dark chocolate! Plus, with the incredibly small yield, I can make this whenever the craving hits without having to worry about storage for extra drinks- and it’s easily multiplied to serve 3 or 4 people. (It’s also a perfect drink for a cozy date night!)

I must be honest, the smaller yield was an oversight- I forgot to check how much milk was needed vs. how much milk we actually had before starting the recipe. Fortunately for me, it turned Moncler outlet out to be a good thing.

White Hot Chocolate

Makes two 6 oz servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 heaping cup of finely chopped white chocolate. (I used 3 squares of Ghirardelli White Chocolate Baking Squares.) 
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup hot water (Not boiling)
  • 1 1/2 cup milk

Process:

  1. Melt chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the sugar and water.
  2. Add the salt and mix with spatula or wooden spoon until everything is mixed together and mixture is slightly foamy. (completely foamy around the edges with a little bit of foam in the middle.)
  3. Whisk in the milk and stir until mixture is at serving temperature. Do not boil; but there may be some bubbles throughout the mixture.
  4. Pour into a pyrex measuring cup through a strainer. This is to make sure there aren’t any clumps in the drink.
  5. Pour into two mugs and serve immediately  Garnish with Whipped cream, white chocolate, or marshmallows.
