White Chocolate Hot Cocoa with Minty Shamrock Marshmallows

Pin It

Legend has it that finding a four-leaf clover will bring you good luck.  I would consider any day lucky if someone made me this white chocolate cocoa!  Generally speaking, my family is not a huge fan of plain white chocolate, but this  cocoa changes all the rules.  {Warning, this hot chocolate  is  totally indulgent- you may not want to share.}

Adding the shamrock marshmallows is a fun idea for St. Patrick’s day!  We have a basic marshmallow recipe here.  And if you don’t have time to make the shamrock marshmallows, you could always just add a little green food color to the cocoa for a spot of green on the day!

P.S.   It’s not required to wait until March 17 to try this  hot cocoa . . .  however, to truly appreciate the cocoa goodness, I do recommend you make sure to find a few minutes to relax and savor every drop!


White Chocolate Hot Cocoa

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Heat milk, cream and vanilla until it is about to boil (on the stove top or in the microwave).  Add the white chocolate chips and allow to set for one minute, then stir until chocolate is completely melted.  Now put your feet up and enjoy!

Makes 2 servings {or maybe just one large one . . .}


Minty Shamrock Marshmallows
