Spiced White Hot Chocolate
It was the best.
I also remember my dad making us hot chocolate, but not the powdered stuff from the packets. The good stuff! From the stove!
Anyway, this spiced white hot chocolate is also 'the good stuff.' Also from the stove. This stuff has white chocolate instead of Hershey's syrup and some seasonal spices to get you pumped for winter and snow!
SPICED WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE (serves 2)
2 c. milk
3/4 c. cream
4 oz. white chocolate
2 cinnamon sticks
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
1 Tbsp. whole cloves
cinnamon stick and ground cinnamon for garnish
1. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cream, chocolate, 2 cinnamon sticks, pepper, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
2. Whisk constantly until the chocolate is melted and it reaches a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Strain into two mugs and garnish with a cinnamon stick and a dash of ground cinnamon.
