Who doesn’t love a cup of hot chocolate? Made with real white chocolate chips, this easy to make drink has the ability to lift any mood and fill everyone with a warm feeling of goodness and hope. Typically made with dark or milk chocolate, we bet you never considered making a homemade white hot chocolate. Trust us, it tastes better than Starbucks and it’s certainly healthier as it contains less sugar, more cacao solids, costs a fraction of one made at a coffee shop and can be prepared in 2 minutes flat. Allowing you to curl on the sofa and enjoy another episode of your favourite TV show. Too good to be true?
Our homemade white hot chocolate is made with Food Thoughts Luxury White Chocolate Chips, winners of Great Taste 2022 award. Unlike most white chocolate in the market, our white chocolate chips contain 35% cacao solids. So they are perfectly balanced in sweetness and flavour. Not too sweet, not too chocolatey, just the perfect level of sweetness, chocolate and vanilla aroma. Buy them in bulk here or at get the tubs from Ocado or you local Sainsbury’s.
