White Hot Chocolate

White Hot Chocolate Recipe
 We had guests arrive by surprise a couple of days ago, but it was much to their surprise that we had our roof replaced during their stay.  I wish we had known that they were coming, then we could have changed the repair date.  Can you imagine the chaos that was going on at our house, mostly outdoors?
Oh it was musical with the bang, bang here, and the cong, cong there, magical I tell ya,
I thought that the ceiling was going to fall on our heads.

Our guests were staying over for two nights, so I tried to make their stay as comfortable as possible.  I managed to make everything comfy & cozy to make them feel at home.  I also decided to make a decadent drink for us all and since we all love chocolate, I made it extra special. I decided to make my hot chocolate "white chocolate"  instead of dark chocolate and boy was it ever good.   
If something in this big wide world can be referred to as 'perfection in a glass', then it must be this white hot chocolate drink.

Oh the thoughts of a crackling fire on a cool breezy night holding this warm and delicious delight.
Oh cool air come soon!

Ingredients:
3 cups half & half or light cream
2/3 cup white baking pieces or chopped white chocolate baking squares.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Ground cinnamon (optional)
Whipped cream (optional)

This drink is so easy to make, but I must warn you, it is rich.  If you are looking for something that is not as rich, I would add less white chocolate to the recipe and for those who prefer slim and skinny drinks, I would substitute the half & half with fat free half and half or skim milk.  So are you ready?  Here is what you do:

In a medium saucepan combine 1/4 cup of the half and half, the baking pieces of chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Stir over low heat until baking pieces are melted.  Add remaining half & half.  Cook and stir until heated through.  Remove from heat.  Remove and discard cinnamon stick.  Stir in vanilla and almond extract.  If desired add whipped cream and cinnamon to top it off.  Enjoy!
