I'm Dreaming of Some White Hot Chocolate

Today (and yesterday, and probably tomorrow) we're getting hit with a big snowstorm.  What a better time for some hot chocolate!  All that watching the Hubs shovel makes me cold ;)  While regular hot chocolate is good, sometimes I prefer a little white hot chocolate.  I'm finicky like that.  

I used a crockpot because I'm lazy like that it's easy.

Crockpot White Hot Chocolate
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup half & half or cream
3/4 cup white chocolate baking pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla
gingerbread marshmallows
sprinkling of nutmeg and/or cinnamon
  1. Add the milk, half & half/cream, white chocolate & vanilla into a small crockpot
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours (my small crockpot only has an On setting - I cooked it for 2 hours and it was perfect)
  3. Use a whisk to incorporate the white chocolate pieces after half of the cooking time has passed (2 hours for low or 1 hour for high)
  4. Ladle into festive mugs and plop in a few gingerbread marshmallows or sprinkle with a bit of nutmeg/cinnamon. 
Then snuggle in and watch the snow fall.  Or the Hubs shovel.

P.S.  This recipe makes about 4 small cups of hot chocolate, but it can easily be doubled or tripled for a larger crowd.

P.S.S.  This is also divine in coffee - white chocolate mocha deliciousness!

I love white chocolate! I haven't seen gingerbread mallows, but they are so cute! If I can find some at the store, I am going to give this a try.
