Hot Chocolate on a Cold Day

White Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Whipped Cream

It’s been so cold lately that I’ve been loving warming myself up with steaming cups of this White Hot Chocolate while lounging around in my fleece pajamas. This is such a ridiculously easy recipe, it’s not really a recipe at all. Just three ingredients into a pot on the stove, heat, and you’re good to go!

Of course this also means life is a little less bright & cheery without your whipped cream and cherry on top!

    Hello, thanks for posting this lovely picture and recipe! I made this last night and it was way too sweet for us. I used Trader Joes white chips, so I am hoping it will work with 1/2 the bag =) going to try it again. Also I went shopping for the masonjars like this and the ones I found at Joanns all said “Not for hot products” where did you get yours please?
