Is it just me or are single serving desserts taking over Pinterest? While I love the idea of having a small sweet treat after dinner, sometimes a mug of cake or cookie doesn’t seem practical. Or maybe it’s that I realize, 1 cookie won’t do it for me and I know eating an entire pan of cookies is not a wise idea. To satisfy my sweet tooth, I’ve created this White Hot Chocolate Recipe. It could not be easier to make and is the perfect treat while watching TV or reading once the kids are in bed. We’ve been experiencing cold and gloomy weather in our neck of the woods so I’ve been indulging in this delicious drink regularly.
I typically use 2% milk but if you are looking for an even richer treat you could use heavy cream. It’s also delicious topped with a large dollop of homemade whipped cream. As you can see, I love whipped cream on almost everything! You could easily substitute dark chocolate chips or mint chips to change the flavor of the hot chocolate. There are endless possibilities. This recipe makes one cup but could easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate a bigger crowd.
