~Orange Hot Chocolate~
- 12 oz. premium white chocolate
- 8 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- orange food color
- whipped cream & chocolate nonpareils (for garnish)
Coarsely chop the premium white chocolate, transfer to a medium-size heatproof bowl and set aside. Heat milk in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, until bubbles begin to form at edge of surface, about 4 minutes.
Immediately pour milk over chocolate.
When chocolate begins to melt, stir until combined. Whisk in vanilla extract and 2 drops orange food color; whisk until a light foam forms on surface. Pour into 10 mugs, garnish with whipped cream and chocolate nonpareils, and serve immediately.
