|FOOD|orange hot white chocolate

This weekend The Hubs and I had a stay at home date night.  I’ll be writing about that more in a future post but for now I’m going to share with you a scrumptious hot chocolate that we had.

For this recipe for 2 you will need:
400ml milk
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
2 tsp orange essence (or 2 shots of Cointreau)
Squirty cream
Orange sugar or sprinkles
White chocolate chips (or stars as we’ve used)

This is such a simple recipe which can easily be made in the microwave or made on the hob.

1.    Pour milk and chocolate chips into a plastic jug and microwave on high in bursts of 30 seconds until the milk is hot and the chocolate is nicely melted.  (to cook on the hob, just add the milk, chocolate & orange essence to a pan and heat gently, serve once the chocolate has melted)

2.    Add the orange essence

3.    Pour into suitable cups, top with squirty cream and sprinkles, I used orange sugar, white chocolate stars and a tiny bit of silver edible glitter!

  1. Love the idea of a white hot chocolate drink, I bet it's delicious with the cointreau. Thanks for sharing :-)

  2. Wow what an incredible idea! I bet the orange gives it that burst of Christmas in a cup! Thanks so much for sharing with my holiday recipe linky & for the link x
