WINTER WHITE CHOCOLATE DRINK
Think of this as hot chocolate for grown-ups—a rich and warming variation on kids' cocoa. Add a splash of liqueur right before serving, if desired.
Yield: 4 servings
- 4 ounces good-quality white chocolate, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup coffee
- 1-1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Cinnamon sticks or freshly grated nutmeg for garnish
Melt the chocolate in a heavy saucepan (or a double boiler) over low heat, stirring constantly. Add the coffee, milk, and half-and-half and heat until hot (do not boil). Add the vanilla right before serving. Serve garnished with cinnamon sticks or nutmeg.
