Homemade White Hot Chocolate Recipe

I'm like a child when it comes to hot chocolate. I love it rich and creamy and with copious amounts of whipped cream on top. Several years ago I was introduced to sipping chocolate and my mind was blown because for some reason, up until that point in my life I only knew hot chocolate to be Swiss Miss. I had no idea what creamy delicious hot chocolate was when you made it with a packet and some hot water. I started experimenting and trying out new variations of hot chocolate and I found this delicious homemade white hot chocolate recipe I think you will love. It's the perfect creamy addition to your holiday season.
