When To Serve This White Hot Chocolate

Morning, noon, or night! There is no wrong time to whip up this super simple hot chocolate. 

What you can do is sit the chocolate and sprinkles by your elf with a recipe card so it looks like he wants you to make it. 

Then make it for breakfast or after school or for a movie night that evening. It would be a fun staged idea. 

How Long Does It Take To Make This White Hot Chocolate

It takes just a few minutes to make. The biggest thing is getting the milk warm and the chocolate melted, once that happens you assemble and serve.

To speed up the process shave your chocolate or use smaller pieces so it melts a lot faster. 

The key is to heat on lower heat so it doesn’t scorch the milk or burn chocolate. You need to stir continuously to prevent burning or clumping. 

Can I Change The Color Of Elf Hot Chocolate

You bet! Reach for any food coloring you have or want and drop it in. Then stir to incorporate the color and pour in a cup or mug. 

I love using clear so the kids could see the color of the hot chocolate. It made it funnier to drink for them!

If you have leftover hot chocolate pour into an airtight container and store in the fridge. You can store your chocolate drink for 3-5 days.
