White Hot Cocoa

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for treat beverages.  Hot beverages, cold beverages, adult beverages – if you want to win me over, share a drink with me. :)

White Hot Cocoa Mix

I have a twist on traditional cocoa today after seeing a white chocolate pudding mix.  On a whim, I wondered if I could use it to make a hot drink mix – and it’s both simple and delicious!

White Hot Cocoa Recipe:

  • 1 c. nonfat dry milk
  • 1 – 3.3 oz. package white chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 c. (4 oz.) grated or ground white chocolate

You can use either white chocolate chips or baking chocolate for this recipe.  To grind it up to dissolve easily, I ran white chocolate baking squares through my coffee mill.  (Just take care that your motor doesn’t start to get warm – otherwise you could end up with a melty mess.  Mine only started to get warm at the end, but that could have been quite a hassle to clean up if it had gotten any warmer.)

Stir your ingredients together and store in an airtight jar until ready to use.  Mix 2-3 tsp. for each 1 c. hot water.  For a normal-sized mug, that will be about 2 Tbsp. of mix.  Stir well to be sure the chocolate melts.  Then enjoy!  You can optionally garnish it with a candy cane or peppermint stick.

As with nearly every mix, this packages up to gift nicely – just be sure to include instructions!

    My lil sister was wanting some white chocolate cocoa… couldn’t find it in the stores so I looked hoping to find a recipe and this came up. I made a batch and now I need to go back to the store and get more ingredients so I can make myself my own batch :)

    After drinking half of my cup, i decided to add a little bit of peppermint Torani syrup. SOOO DELICIOUS, With or without the syrup, it’s awesome.
