Hot Chocolate - white, chocolate, french vanilla

yes i did photograph this :)
With the cold weather finally kicking into Florida, I find myself reaching for tea bags and hot cocoa pouches. I just love the cold here in Florida, because it doesn't last long.
When I used to live in Minnesota, i'd order White Hot Chocolate from Carribou Coffee and it was one of the best things I had ever tasted. Sweet vanilla white chocolate that was not too heavy. OOh yeah.
So to make up for it, I found a recipe that is close enough to it.
White Hot Chocolate (serving for 1)
1/2 cup or 27 pieces of white chocolate chips
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 cup of skim milk (or your choice)
whipped cream (optional)
In a pot, pour in the heavy whipping cream and stir in the white chocolate chips. Keep stirring until the white chocolate chips are melted. Pour in the milk and keep stirring until hot and smooth. Pour into your favorite cup and top it off with some whipped cream and cinnamon (if desired).

My next pick for hot cocoa that I recently just tried would be Nestle's Chocolate Caramel. It isso GOOD. That's all I can say. In my honest opinion I can say this really doesn't have that "fake" chocolate flavor. It's rich and a little creamy. It's worth trying for 110 calories only!

I'm not a fan of Swiss Miss but their French Vanilla version is good. This too is 110 calories of goodness.
