Adjust the ingredients amounts to your taste. The vanilla is not essential, but I prefer it with it. I have also tried infusing the milk with a handful of fresh mint leaves (remove just before pouring over the chocolate). I recommend it!
- 200 ml Milk (any kind)
- 20 g White chocolate (good quality)
- ¼ tsp Vanilla paste or vanilla extract (optional)
- Pour the milk into a saucepan and add the vanilla, if using. Warm the milk until hot, but just before it boils.
- Meanwhile, break the chocolate into small pieces (chop with a sharp knife if they are large chunks that are difficult to break) and put them into a mug or the tall plastic container that comes with a stick blender, if you have one.
- Pour the hot milk and stir well, using a milk frother if you have one, or blitz with the stick blender.
