Homemade Orange & Cinnamon White Hot Chocolate!

Finally, exams are over! With so much exam stress and now reaching Christmas, keeping up with my blog has been difficult. But today, I’m going to share a festive treat with you that is quick, easy and cheap to make! Here is the recipe for Do-It-Yourself Orange & Cinnamon White Hot Chocolate!

To make this Christmassy drink, all you need is:

  • 3/4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1% but you can use whatever you like)
  • approx. 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

To start, add the chocolate chips into a large bowl and set aside.

Add milk, cinnamon and orange zest into a small pot over medium heat, stirring regularly.

When the milk starts to bubble, remove from heat and pour through a strainer into the bowl with the chocolate. This removes the orange zest from the drink.

When the hot mixture is poured onto the chocolate, add the vanilla and wisk to melt the chocolate.

If you prefer milk chocolate rather than white, you could substitute the white chocolate chips for regular ones!

Once the hot chocolate is smooth, pour into a Christmas mug and top with whipped cream, orange zest and cinnamon!

Enjoy!
