Countdown to Christmas Day 11: White Chocolate Cocoa

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me a recipe for White Chocolate Cocoa!! 

This is just a quick and easy recipe i just made up tonight as i faniced something cosy to drink.
I used to love this when i was younger my mamma always used to buy the powder from Whittards of Chelsea, but since i never had that in the house i just made it up and hoped for the best!! 
I know some of you may think it shouldn't be classed as hot chocolate because it doesn't have any cocoa solids in it but i have to admit it was yummy. 

You couldn't even call it a recipe as it involves just 4 ingredients!! 

First up pour 1 cup of milk (FullFat or SemiSkimmed)  into a saucepan on medium/low heat keeping an eye to make sure it doesn't burn. Meanwhile chop up around 50 grams or less of good quality white chocolate depending on how sweet and chocolately you want it to be.
When you see steam rising from the pan whisk in your white chocolate, 3 teaspoons of horlicks powder and a drop of good quality vanilla extract until the chocolate in melted. 

Pour the cocoa into your favourite mug add marshmallows and pile high with whipped cream!! 
Now its time to snuggle up to read your favourite book or watch some tv.
