Cozy up by the fire this Christmas Eve with a cup of hot cocoa!
But not just any old cocoa. Mix things up this holiday with an unexpectedly pleasant combination. One that brings herbal notes and classic cocoa flavors together in your favorite Christmas mug.
If you love white chocolate, you will adore this addictive concoction: Lemongrass and Lavender White Hot Chocolate!
Lemongrass and Lavender White Hot Chocolate
- 12 ounces whole milk
- 1 small stalk lemongrass, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender
- 1/2 teaspoon zest from one small lime
- 3 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
In small saucepan over medium heat, heat milk, lemongrass, lavender, lime leaf, and zest, stirring occasionally, until bubbles form around edges. Remove from heat and let steep 15 minutes.
Strain milk, then return to empty saucepan. Add chocolate and gently heat over medium heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted and mixture is hot. Serve immediately.
Wishing you the warmest of holiday wishes from all of us here at Produce Alliance!
