My husband is allergic to chocolate but he can eat white chocolate, and I wanted to find a recipe for white hot chocolate. I happened to be watching The Food Network the other day and Sandra Lee had a recipe for white hot chocolate on her Semi-Homemade holiday cooking show (semi-homemade is my kind of homemade!).
First thing I did was assemble all my ingredients:
1 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Cup White Chocolate Chips
(Sandra's recipe calls for whisking together on the stovetop one minute, but I put mine in the mircrowave on high for two minutes, whisking after one minute and then again when it was done).
4 Cups Half-and-Half
(I heated that another minute in the microwave)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (I didn't add the peppermint since I was going to be using the Peppermint Schnapps).
Add (to taste)
White Chocolate Liquor (optional)
Peppermint Schnapps (optional)
I used both the White Chocolate Liquor and the Peppermint Schnapps (but first I put aside a cup of non-alcoholic hot chocolate for my grandson!).
Top with vanilla flavored whipped cream, and Sandra's recipe calls for crushed bits of peppermint for garnish on top, but I topped it with cinnamon.
It was a delicious treat on this cold, snowy evening, and along with some wonderful cookies my daughter had received at her job from an Italian Bakery in Manhattan (which she of course shared with us), this really hit the spot!
