This recipe is very good. My family loved it. I served it with homemade marshmallows and it dissappeared quickly!

I love white chocolate and when I saw this recipe I just had to try it. Let me tell you, this is some good hot white chocolate! I didn't garnish with dark chocolate, I used milk chocolate instead and it was a very nice combination of sweet. I'd definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who is a fan of white chocolate and I'll definitely be treating myself to a cup (or 2) of this when I am in the mood for something special. Thanks for posting.

Oooooh what a joy! This was to die for! I followed the recipe exactly (look carefully and the package and make sure you are buying CHOCOLATE and not "flavored" something else..shame!). Rich, decadent, perfect for our girls night in. I also served peppermint schnapps on the side for a little extra kick for those who want to indulge further, although totally unnecessary. Thank you Thank you! Recipe made & reviewed for Comfort Cafe.
