Is there anything that screams “Happy Holiday’s” more than a nice creamy cup of hot cocoa? I sure don’t think so. Hot beverages, twinkle lights, and snow falling outside the window makes for the most perfect winter moment. These twists on the traditional season staple are so creamy and delicious you may never want to unsnuggle. So cosy up in front of a fire, with your softest blanket and put on a holiday film because here are three of the most decadent, rich, and velvety smooth hot chocolate recipes I have found yet!

White Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:
3 cups milk
1 cup half and half or heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

whipped cream & holiday sprinkles
Directions:
Add all ingredients to a medium pot over medium heat. Warm, while whisking, until the Ghirardelli Classic White Chocolate have melted and the hot chocolate is smooth. Be careful not to let the chocolate boil. Serve with whip cream and sprinkles. Enjoy!
