This hot chocolate is perfect for those wonderful winter nights full of magic and anticipation. Made with real white chocolate and smooth Ontario cream, this whimsical drink will bring a smile to both kids and kids-at-heart.
For an adult version of this festive beverage, substitute the peppermint extract with 3 jiggers of peppermint flavoured liqueur, and maybe hold on the sprinkles... or not.
In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt white chocolate, cream, milk, vanilla and peppermint extract. Whisk continuously until white chocolate is melted and the mixture is hot (do not allow to boil).
Whisk in blue food colouring (if using).
Pour into 4 mugs and garnish with toppings.
