How’s everyone doing with their holiday shopping? Are you in the homestretch or haven’t even started yet? I’m probably about 70% of the way done, so I would say I’m doing okay! When I have it all done, I’ll feel EVEN better. That’s when I’ll be able to just sit down in the living room in front of the fireplace, relax and have a big mug of this completely delicious Snowball Hot Chocolate.
I first shared this wonderful recipe over at Smart School House. Today, I’m overjoyed to be bringing it over to Bitz & Giggles to share with all of you!
So, here’s what you’re in store for. . .rich and creamy white chocolate topped off with a scoop of ice cream and garnished with chocolate, fudge syrup, marshmallows or whatever your little heart desires.
Then, comes the most heavenly part of all. . .add a scoop of ice cream. Any kind, really. I chose Vanilla Fudge Swirl. Oh. my. goodness. My kids aren’t normally hot chocolate drinkers. You know why? Because it’s always too hot and they don’t have the patience to wait for it to cool off. THIS hot chocolate, however, they will drink.
Why? Well, because it’s hot chocolate taken to a whole ‘nother level, AND the ice cream cools it off and makes it the perfect temperature to drink right away. There’s no reason for your family members to burn the skin off their tongues every time they take a sip of hot chocolate, and if someone spills this hot chocolate on themselves, they’re not going to scald themselves the way they would with coffee or hot chocolate right off the stove.
After you put the scoop of ice cream in the hot chocolate it just melts gradually, leaving behind the creamiest, dreamiest hot chocolate I promise you’ve ever tasted. This white hot chocolate DOES NOT disappoint. Once it hits your lips, it’s over. End of story. What a treat. . .certainly one your family and holiday guests will never forget. Enjoy!
