As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a roll lately trying out different hot chocolate recipes. As the evenings get cooler, I’m finding more and more reasons to curl up on the couch with a hot beverage.
I finally perfected my White Hot Chocolate recipe so I decided to take it up a notch. What could I add to my favorite hot chocolate recipes to make them even better? I started thinking about my favorite flavor combinations and came up with an idea – white hot chocolate with almond flavoring!
This Almond Hot Chocolate recipe was born and has been made regularly in my house ever since.
This hot chocolate recipe is made with white hot chocolate, not traditional homemade hot chocolate. What’s the difference between white chocolate and regular chocolate? White chocolate technically isn’t chocolate at all!
Personally, I prefer white chocolate to milk or dark chocolate in my hot chocolate recipes because the taste is sweet and smooth but not as strong as traditional chocolate. I find it’s much more adaptive to any other ingredients I might add.
So how did I turn my White Hot Chocolate into Almond Hot Chocolate? I simply added almond extract to my white hot chocolate recipe. If you don’t add any toppings, you only need 3 ingredients to make this delicious drink!
As with my other hot chocolate recipes, I like to serve Almond Hot Chocolate with my homemade hot chocolate stir sticks.
