This makes a fabulous and inexpensive gift to give, along with some pretty mugs, stirring spoons, and napkins in a pretty gift basket. Any mix makes a wonderful gift. Pair this with other drink or beverage mixes for a really good present!

White chocolate has a low melting point; in fact, it softens at body temperature, around 98 °F. That is why it has such a luxurious mouth feel. This recipe is really decadent and delicious.

To grate the chocolate, you can freeze it, then grate it on the fine side of a grater. Or cut the chocolate into fairly small pieces and grind in a blender or food processor. Freezing the chocolate will help it from turning into a puree, since white chocolate has such a low melting point. You can store the mix for future use in an airtight container in a cool dark place.

What You'll Need

  • 6 cups grated white chocolate
  • 3 (3-ounce) package white chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla powder
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons dried orange peel (finely ground, if desired)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, combine the white chocolate, pudding mix, vanilla powder, and orange peel. 
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk until bubbles form around the edges and steam rises from the surface. Don't let the milk simmer or boil.
  3. Add the White Hot Chocolate Mix and whisk until the chocolate is melted and beverage is blended. Serve immediately.
