Whiteout Cocoa


This post will be short and sweet since I'm going out of town for a few days, but I couldn't let another day pass without sharing this recipe!

This is an absolutely delicious white chocolate cocoa, and it couldn't be easier to make.  The original recipe uses full-fat ingredients, but I've lightened it up a bit.  So feel free to go crazy with copious amounts of whipped cream or even giant oven-toasted marshmallows.

I won't tell.

Whiteout Cocoa
8-10 servings                                                                                                       [click for printable version]

6 cups skim milk
2 cups fat-free half and half
12 oz. package white chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli)
1 tablespoon vanilla
Whipped cream and nonpareils for topping

1. Place skim milk, half and half, vanilla and white chocolate chips in a large pot, and place over medium heat.  Stir occasionally until chocolate chips begin to melt, then reduce heat to medium-low.

2. Cook, stirring occasionally until mixture is very hot and chips are melted.  Divide mixture between mugs and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.  Serve immediately.

Note: If the mixture is left for very long at room temperature, the fat from the white chocolate will rise to the surface.  Be sure to gently re-heat the mixture a give it a good stir before serving!

  20. I definitely need to load this with whipped cream to balance it out! Of course your photo is perfect:-)

  21. This sounds fabulous, and I love that it uses lighter ingredients, unlike most hot cocoa recipes. I may have a way to use up some of my leftover white chocolate from truffles I made for my cousin's wedding.

  22. I don't eat/drink white chocolate, but dang does this look good. :)

    Have fun on your trip out of town :)

  29. ooh a local place has white hot chocolate with lavender, and I've never been able to find white cocoa mix (dunno whyit didn't occur to me to make it)... so I think I may have to try this over the weekend! :)

  41. Just found your blog via Pinterest. So glad I did. Your food looks delish and your pictures are awesome. Good job!

  42. I regrettably admit that I've never had a white hot chocolate...it's always been the traditional version or Mexican hot chocolate. Your recipe looks delicious and I like that you use the Ghirardeli white chocolate chips - I'm addicted to those things, and I always have a bag of them here! For Christmas, my friend got a milk frother (literally the sole purpose of this thing is to make milk foamy...at first I was skeptical but it's actually quite brilliant). If you have never used one of these bad boys, I highly suggest it - they make lattes and hot chocolate absolutely satisfying. Thanks for the adorable whiteout chocolate recipe ;)

  43. This looks fabulous!!!! I don't think I've ever had a white chocolate, and I've never had a hot chocolate that looks this good! I love the sprinkles on top!

  44. excuse me, I'm italian and I don't understand very well the english.
    what do you mean "2 cups fat-free half and half"? what is fat- free?
    your blog is wonderful :D

  49. love the picture! i love how no one really thinks about making hot cocoa with white chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  50. OK, I am a dark/milk chocolate girl but this looks too delicious to pass up! And of course I just love the sprinkles on top :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I will have to surprise my husband with this! He makes himself some cocoa practically every night, and this would be a fun alternative to the dark version! Thanks Heather! It looks so pretty too:)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yippie!!! It is hard to ever find a white hot chocolate..this looks DIVINE! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a beautiful and brilliant idea! My daughter would love this!

    ReplyDelete
  54. YUM! This looks much tastier than the white hot chocolate version I've been using in the past. It was mostly milk and sugar. The addition of white chocolate is a much better idea! I bet my family would love this! I think it's supposed to snow tomorrow, maybe we'll find out what they think.

  55. This is awesome I have to try!
