How pretty is this drink?!
This is our second snow this winter, which is quite a miracle for this part of Oregon. Snow means, no work, lazy days annnnnnd HOT CHOCOLATE!
Hot chocolate is always better when it's snowing, don't you think? :) So instead of making the same old hot chocolate/white hot chocolate drink we usually make, I wanted to put a spin on it!
I recently got a box of fruity pebbles after I found a recipe on Pinterest that called for it. I didn't turn out as good as I thought it would, and was kind of a dud. Bummer. I'm a big fan of fruity pebbles, so I was trying to figure out ways I could use the rest of the pebbles up, since I'm not much of a cereal fan, or a milk fan. So, why not try a fruity hot chocolate? It has the perfect amount of Fruity Pebbles taste to it and it's such a pretty color! :) Definitely keeping this recipe around!
Fruity Pebbles White Hot Chocolate
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup fruity pebbles, crushed
1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a sauce pan warm your heavy cream and purple chocolate together. Add vanilla, milk and crushed fruity pebbles and bring almost to a boil. Strain the fruity pebbles out of the drink as you pour it in your cup. Top with whip cream and Fruity Pebbles.
