Tips and Suggestions
- Be sure to stir the mixture continuously as it heats up to prevent the milk from burning.
- Add a pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla extract to highlight the flavor of the white chocolate.
- If you don’t have white chocolate chips, a chopped white chocolate bar will work just as well.
- You can use red food coloring if you can’t find pink. Just be sure to start with a tiny amount and increase very gradually so the color doesn’t turn out too red.

How Do I Store Pink Hot Chocolate?
You can save your leftover hot chocolate in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to serve it, simply pour it back into the saucepan and gradually reheat.
What Kind of Milk Should I Use?
Keep in mind that the higher the fat content of the milk, the creamier the hot chocolate will taste, so I recommend using whole milk. If you prefer a less creamy hot chocolate, you can use 2%, or you can use a non-dairy variety like coconut milk, cashew milk, or almond milk
