Homemade White Hot Chocolate

Nov 7, 2021 | Drinks, Food

Homemade Hot White Chocolate!  Happy Monday everyone!  Are you a hot chocolate lover?  I love a large mug of hot chocolate when fall season hits.  I’ve been holding on to this Homemade Hot White Chocolate recipe for a while, bought these adorable mugs at Home Goods and now I can let you all in on my recipe.  This extra sweet hot drink is a combination of whole milk, vanilla, and white chocolate whisked over medium heat until hot and ready to pour.  
Warning:  This recipe is very sweet!  If you prefer a less sweeter version, reduce the amount of white chocolate and vanilla. This is yours to recreate and I would love to hear if you have tried it.  Don’t forget to comment below and give the recipe a rating.  Google sees these ratings which helps show the blog is legitimate and worthy of a higher ranking within Google.

Can you see it now?  You…sitting under a super soft blanket watching the leaves fall or maybe it’s Christmas and your tree is decorated, the lights are blinking, fire place burning, with a Christmas Hallmark movie on and you’ve got your favorite mug in hand full of this homemade hot white chocolate!

You can use whatever milk you like, white chocolate chips, white candy melts like I used, or name brand chocolate like Sarris, Andy’s Candies, or Lindt, real vanilla extract, and enhanced your drink with a dash of salt, or colored sugar sprinkles.  Make it fun by adding peppermint extract, crushed peppermint candies, or a candy cane for stirring in place of a spoon.  Another fun idea would be to a swirl of caramel or chocolate sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.  A fun gift would be to create a recipe card, provide the white chocolate in a decorative container, and give as a gift with a decorative mug.  Or in place of a recipe card, provide the exact blogger website and recipe you found so your loved one can enjoy more recipes from their website.
Looking to put a gift together?  Two Adorable Labs has some adorable post cards, 3 cookbooks and candles to go along with this recipe if you should choose to use or make it.

This recipe takes no more than 15 minutes to make.  With it being so easy and fast to make, you could always have this as a dessert after your meal.  You all know I love salty and sweet and I love having sweets after dinner.  I wouldn’t mind having the kitchen clean, a full belly, and a hot white chocolate to enjoy after dinner on a cold evening.  How about you?

Author: Two Adorable Labs


  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups white chocolate candy melts (round shape)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Combine milk, white chocolate, and vanilla
  • Whisk over medium heat until chocolate is melted
  • Keep stirring so chocolate does not burn. Do not let boil


You can use a dash of salt if you prefer.  I chose not to use salt.  
I topped with green and gold sprinkles to match my mug and to make it festive.  
I added whipped cream and miniature marshmallows.  
Other toppings could be white chocolate chips, 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract, or a splash of Hazelnut extract in place of or in combination with the pure vanilla extract.  Add shavings of milk, dark, or white chocolate on top

I love hearing from all of you and do my best to respond to each and every one of you.  I always enjoy your comments, feedback, and suggestions so keep them coming!  If I’ve posted a recipe (for our human and our furry friends) and you try it, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @twoadorablelabs and use #twoadorablelabs​.
