White Hot Chocolate Recipe

It has been so warm here in Alabama this past week…like in the 70′s! As I was leaving work tonight, I finally felt a little chill in the air. I was so excited to get home, turn on all the Christmas lights, and make myself a hot drink! I didn’t feel like stopping at the store so I knew I had to find a recipe that required minimal ingredients and those I already had in the house. I found this recipe on Food Network and changed a few of the ingredients so I would be able to make it (I didn’t have the half & half, vanilla whipped topping, or mint). My version turned out delicious! If you like hot and sweet drinks, give this one a try!

White Hot Chocolate Recipe


  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups milk (I used 1% because that's what I had in the house)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream
  • Rolled chocolate hazelnut wafer, for garnish


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine white chocolate chips and heavy cream. Stir continuously until white chocolate chips have completely melted.
  2. Stir in the milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Stir until heated through. Tip: Stir often so the milk doesn't burn.
  4. Pour into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with a rolled wafer.

Wafers can be purchased here. Mug can be purchased here.

This recipe makes enough to fill 2-4 mugs, depending on how big they are. For added holiday flair, try using peppermint extract in place of the vanilla extract and garnish with crushed up candy canes! Such a perfect drink for a cold night in front of the fire!

XO, Louisa
