I’ve wanted to create a White Hot Chocolate recipe for just about as long as I can remember. When bought at a coffee shop or elsewhere, White Hot Chocolate is generally one of those uber sweet drinks made with far more sugar than my system can handle.
After creating a bunch of Paleo Christmas Cookie recipes this past month I’m all baked out and I’m ready for easy dessert recipes that are also not quite as sweet. When I make White Hot Chocolate for myself I omit the honey from the recipe; for the boys I leave it, as they want their treats sweet. Making homemade hot chocolate is so easy that even my boys have been doing it for years; another one of our favorite recipes is for Mexican Hot Chocolate –it will seriously warm you up with its spicy goodness.
White Hot Chocolate
- In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients
- Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer

- Serve frothy whipped White Hot Chocolate in mugs
Makes 2 servings
Lately I’ve also been working on a white chocolate recipe sweetened with stevia alone. I’ve made it several times and it’s turned out just ok –nothing post worthy yet.
