white chocolate hot cocoa

Spoil yourself and your guests this holiday season with a mug ~ filled to the brim ~ of luxurious, white hot cocoa.

Think rich and robust when making white hot cocoa. 

Use the finest, richest ingredients you can find . . .
Ghirardelli chocolate, heavy cream, and vanilla beans.

4 to 6 ounces Ghirardelli white chocolate, grated or chips
1 split vanilla bean
1 to 2 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
1 teaspoon white granulated sugar, optional
1 cup real dairy whipped topping
¾ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon hazelnut flavored dairy creamer

Warm the milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the vanilla bean. 
Dissolve the sugar in the milk and then slowly add the white chocolate. 
When the chocolate has melted, add the heavy cream. 
Add one ice cream scoop very slowly, making sure it's completely melted before adding the second. 
When all of the ingredients are melted, pour the hot drink into a glass mug and top with additional whipped topping, mini marshmallows, or even peppermint pieces.

A little note . . . 
If the ice cream changes the texture of the white hot chocolate and you don't care for that quality, omit the ice cream and add a full cup of milk.

Bon Appetit!
