This time of year, I am freezing pretty much all the time! My husband can definitely attest to this, as I am always begging him to warm up my ice cold fingers and toes. My very favorite way to warm up is with a big mug of something delicious, and this white hot chocolate is the perfect warm treat for a cold night.

How to make White Hot Chocolate

White Hot Chocolate is rich and smooth and sweet, and so incredibly easy to make! I love that it has just a few simple ingredients and takes only about twenty minutes from start to finish. This is definitely going to be a staple around our house all winter long, and I’m sure your family will love it as much as we do!

All you need to make this decadent treat is some white chocolate chips, milk, heavy cream, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Melt the chocolate down in a medium saucepan with the milk and cream and make sure it is warm all through and you’ve got yourself a deliciously perfect mug of white hot chocolate. Top it with some whipped cream or marshmallows (my personal favorite) and some festive sprinkles for a holiday drink that definitely get you on Santa’s good list!
