With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I have been making all kinds of pink treats like strawberry cookies, cherry truffles, strawberries and cream frappuccinos, etc.  One of the very best things I made was this strawberry white hot chocolate.  Now it may sound weird to put fresh fruit in a hot chocolate but trust me, it works.  I first tried it a few years back when I made a raspberry white hot chocolate that tasted absolutely delicious.  This is almost the same recipe but with strawberries instead.

Now the thing that you need to do to make this perfect is to use a blender or immersion blender to get the drink to be smooth.  This is crucial! Additionally, you can pour it through a strainer if you want to make sure it is as smooth as possible but I didn’t find that necessary.  Totally up to you.

Common Questions About Making Strawberry White Hot Chocolate

What is strawberry white hot chocolate made of?

White hot chocolate is so easy to make! My version is made from milk, white chocolate chips, and strawberries.  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.

Is white chocolate really chocolate?

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?

There are so many different options for how to jazz up a white hot chocolate, here are a few favorites –

What kind of strawberries can I use?

You can either use fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries.  For pictures, I used the fresh strawberries but either will turn out.

What can I top my strawberry white hot chocolate with?

I like to top it with some combination of mini marshmallows, homemade whipped cream, white chocolate sauce, and fresh strawberries.
