This Christmas spiced orange white hot chocolate is delicious, creamy and full of festive spice. It’s a perfect Winter warmer!
This Christmas spiced white hot chocolate is infused with orange, vanilla, cinnamon and a sprinkling of nutmeg. If you use a hand blender or milk frother to froth the milk up, you’ll end up with a gorgeously creamy, bubbly drink just like you find in coffee shops.
There’s no need to add extra sugar to the hot chocolate – the white chocolate adds plenty sweetness.
The beautiful Christmas straws are from Iced Jems where you’ll also find a big selection of gorgeous baking bits and pieces – you’ll be spoilt for choice! It’s one of my favourite online shops so do check it out 🙂
