Brandied White Hot Chocolate

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Lennie

This is a grown-up hot chocolate, although you don't have to use the brandy. A good quality bittersweet dark chocolate can be substituted for the white chocolate if that's your preference.

Top Review by Annacia

This is the best hot chocolate that I have had in quite a while. Richly indulgent, smooth and so so delicious. I need to say that I doubled the milk and cream while leaving all else the same. This delight was throughly enjoyed at the *Comfort Cafe Event, Jan 2010*
