1 teaspoon maple syrup or maple syrup granules
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg powder
pinch of saffron
2 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a small pan, combine milk, maple syrup, spices, and baking chocolate pieces. Warm over very low heat until chocolate is melted. (Don’t allow it to scald.) Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Warm again over low heat, then serve immediately.
Vary the taste and scent of this heavenly white hot chocolate by substituting almond extract for the vanilla now and then.
