  • “This recipe is very good.My family loved it.I served it with homemade marshmallows and it dissappeared quickly!”

  • “I love white chocolate and when I saw this recipe I just had to try it. Let me tell you, this is some good hot white chocolate! I didn’t garnish with dark chocolate, I used milk chocolate instead and it was a very nice combination of sweet. I’d definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who is a fan of white chocolate and I’ll definitely be treating myself to a cup (or 2) of this when I am in the mood for something special. Thanks for posting.”

  • “Oooooh what a joy!This was to die for!I followed the recipe exactly (look carefully and the package and make sure you are buying CHOCOLATE and not “flavored” something else..shame!).Rich, decadent, perfect for our girls night in.I also served peppermint schnapps on the side for a little extra kick for those who want to indulge further, although totally unnecessary.Thank you Thank you! Recipe made & reviewed for Comfort Cafe.”

  • “You have totally made my night!This recipe will save me from many expensive trips to Starbucks for their Peppermint White Hot Chocolate this season.:)It was EXACTLY what I was looking for!I cut it in half for 3 servings (and they were a bit small, but sufficient) and used Nestle white morsels.Skipped the dark chocolate shavings for whipped cream with peppermint sprinkles, and it was absolutely perfect.Thanks again for sharing!!!”

  • “Pure heaven.”

  • “This was a big hit.I served it during a winter get-together and everyone wanted the recipe.I also put it in a double boiler (on med-low heat)after fixing it to keep it warm while everyone mingled.I used Lint(Lindor)and it was absolutely sinful.”

  • “Very very good!I had also seen the Oprah show when this was made and thought at the time, Im going to try this one day, so was real happy when I saw someone on Zaar had the recipe.I used Nestles Milky Bar chocolate.Thanks for posting.”
