Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope you all enjoy a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, peace, love, happiness, smiles, laughter and dessert.
This malted white hot chocolate is one way to bring a little bit of white into your Christmas no matter where you find yourself. I served my white hot chocolate topped with a few mocha marshmallows. Enjoy!
