Hot chocolate is an always-popular winter favourite. What’s not to love about warming up with a steaming, hot cup of rich, luscious hot chocolate, topped with a luxurious swirl of whipped cream after a long, chilly day? This season, I tried a new version: White Hot Chocolate, made with rich white chocolate. My daughter was skeptical at first but quickly came to love this recipe in a matter of sips. It may be our new favourite warm winter drink!
