Gingerbread White Hot Chocolate
I can’t believe I had never thought to combine gingerbread and white chocolate before! The idea crossed my mind after making my peppermint white hot chocolate a few weeks back. When I went to grab my peppermint simple syrup, I saw my jar of gingerbread simple syrup and I had the great idea to make the same recipe, but with the gingerbread syrup! I am so happy that I did that because this is such an amazing drink. The gingerbread flavor just makes it feel like Christmas in a cup and it is just so perfect!

It sure is! While you could make it a cold drink or even a blended drink, I think it tastes much better warm.
Can I add alcohol to a gingerbread hot chocolate?
Of course! Some of the best to choose would be spiced rum, amaretto, brandy, or bourbon.
What is white hot chocolate made of?
White hot chocolate is so easy to make! My version is made from milk, white chocolate chips, and vanilla extract. The biggest difference between versions is whether people use milk, half-and-half, or heavy whipping cream as the liquid. I prefer milk because I think the white chocolate melted down thickens the drink up enough but you can really use any of those options or a mix of them.

White chocolate contains all of the same ingredients except for cocoa so while it is similar in texture, it tastes nothing like chocolate.
What different varieties can I make of white hot chocolate?
