Strawberry White Hot Chocolate

I found a recipe on Pinterest for strawberry hot chocolate and was like, “Oh shit that sounds awesome!” until I went to the website and saw that all they did was take strawberry ice cream and heat it up over an oven. In addition to sounding disgusting I also consider it a total cop-out of an excuse for a recipe. I mean, I’m all about easy recipes that don’t take a long time, but seriously? If the entire thing is one ingredient and the only step is to “heat it up” then it is not worthy of its own space on the internet. It’s like when I try to google “spiced eggnog” and the top three recipes have “eggnog” as an ingredient. And they tell you to add cinnamon to it. Really? Thanks for the tip, douche-canoe.

Sorry, the point that I’m trying to get to is that I still thought strawberry hot chocolate sounded awesome but I was absolutely not going to heat up ice cream on the principle that that is fucking stupid. So, I made this instead. And you know what? It tastes just like warm, creamy, melted strawberry ice cream. Only a lot better. Cause I said so.

Strawberry White Hot Chocolate

Serves 4

4 cups milk

1 cup white chocolate chips

1 cup strawberry puree*

*To make the puree – just heat up some frozen strawberries in a saucepan and puree with a blender once they’ve softened and begun to bubble a bit.

Add the milk to a saucepan and stir over medium high heat until it begins to bubble. Add in the white chocolate chips and whisk until they have dissolved completely. Stir in the strawberry puree and pour into mugs. Serve with marshmallows if desired.
