Hot White Chocolate

It's the Christmas season again.  This season is my favorite time of the year.  I love baking and drinking hot chocolate with my kids and watching Christmas movies.  This is a recipe I found years ago that I really enjoy making this time of the year.  It is made with white chocolate rather than dark or milk chocolate.

Hot White Chocolate
3 cups whole milk (I use whole or 2% milk)
8 oz. white chocolate chips
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, heat milk over medium-high heat, whisking frequently, for 5 minutes or until heated through.  Pour in chocolate chips.  Whisk until chips are melted.  Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.  Serve with whipped cream, marshmallows, or a candy cane.

My family loves this hot chocolate.  My husband occasionally says it is too sweet for him, but I say, "If it ain't sweet, it ain't southern!"  All joking aside, try the recipe as it is first.  If it is too sweet for you, cut down some on the chocolate chips.  I have also made this recipe with milk chocolate chips.  I think I used 6 oz. of milk chocolate chips instead of 8 oz. 

I hope this season find you snuggled up with a hot cup of chocolate and warmed with the love of family and friends.  God bless you all!
