I got this recipe from my sweet friend april, who got it at a women’s christmas event. the original recipe calls for white chocolate. i, for one, do not even think the stuff exists, but that is my own personal opinion I tried it with the ‘white chocolate’ and it was SO, WAY, WAAAAAY too sweet for us! So, I did some experimenting….and we found a recipe that has, in the 2 or 3 years we have had it, become a tradition and special treat and expectation during the fall/winter/spring and rainy summer days. Don’t be fooled by the ingredients….the water added to it dilutes it enough that it is just perfect! You can always add more water, or less chocolate or whatever I will write the recipe as given and then ‘my’ recipe…with some of the variations we do….get ready for those cold nights and have these supplies on hand….you WON’T be disappointed!!!

Heat sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate pieces over medium heat. Stir in vanilla, cream, and water while stirring constantly. Heat through. Pour into individual cups. Serve with whipped cream and topping of choice (grated chocolate, crushed peppermint, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.)
Chocolate hot chocolate
1 Can Eagle Brand
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
4 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
Follow the directions above…..NOW, sometimes we only have cocoa powder, so what I do then is the equivalent of 2 squares, which I think is 4 Tablespoons. I add that in with the milk and stir until it is dissolved and the proceed with the rest of the recipe.
Let me know if you like it!!! We have become kinda famous around here for this hot chocolate and for a while I contemplated keeping it a secret….but was convicted that it really wasn’t mine to begin with 😀 ENJOY!!!!
