Needless to say, he is so excited about this cold front and the prospects of snow. We're all snuggled up around a rip-roaring fire, drinking a family favorite, white hot chocolate!
In preparation for this cold weather, I'll share a couple recipes to get us through the winter.
WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE:
2 cups whipping cream
6 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 - 12 oz. bag white chocolate chips
Heat in crockpot on low for 3-4 hours. Serves 6.
8 cups of clean snow
1/2 c. sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Milk or Half & Half for consistency (depending on the fluffiness of your snow)
Mix well and enjoy!
...and for when we are trying to be a little more health conscious.....
SUGAR FREE HOT CHOCOLATE:
1 c. milk or almond milk
1 Tbsp. Truvia
