White Hot Chocolate 

There's something so luxurious about a classic white chocolate drink, with a subtle hint of sweetness this is the ultimate decadent treat that only takes 1-2 minutes to make and a couple of minutes to decorate. 

You can also completely customise this drink by choosing your own choice of dairy whether that's semi-skimmed milk or a milk alternative. 

For this recipe, we've chosen to use semi-skimmed, however, for a great twist we thoroughly recommend coconut milk or oat milk. 

We've also chosen to top our drinking chocolate with squirty cream and some fantastic decorations.

How To Make Grinch Hot Chocolate 

Grinch Hot Chocolate Style White Chocolate

Step 1: Using a tall latte glass, add the White Chocolate Spread to the bottom of the glass. 

Step 2:  Make your hot milk, this can be done by using a milk frother if you have one to hand, or alternatively you can also warm your milk in a medium saucepan placed on medium heat on the hob. Be cautious not to burn your milk as this will alter the end result taste. 

Step 3: To make your hot chocolate green, we added green food colouring and stirred until combined. 

Step 4: Take your red icing sugar and create droplet effects around your glass 

Step 5: Top with whipped cream, icing eyes & angry eyebrows using black icing.
