Caramelized White Chocolate Hot Chocolate

This recipe is interesting- you bake white chocolate in the oven until it caramelizes.  It turns dark brown and then is stirred into warm milk.  I think this could have used more milk- it was so sweet. But I still enjoyed it.  Happy Valentine's Day!

Caramelized White Chocolate Hot Chocolate
adapted from the Kitchn
makes 3, 1-cup servings or 4 servings with less

6 ounces white chocolate (about)
3 cups milk
Vanilla extract, a few drops
Salt, to taste

1.  Preheat the oven to 300°F and put the white chocolate in a glass or ceramic baking dish. No need to chop. Toss it in the oven and roast, stirring every 10 minutes or so. The white chocolate will be lumpy and crumbly, but that’s okay. Keep going until it takes on a peanut butter-like color, about 20-30 minutes total.

2.  Meanwhile, bring the milk to a simmer in a small pot.  When the white chocolate comes out of the oven, scrape it into the hot milk-mixture and whisk until smooth. Season with a pinch of salt and the vanilla extract.  Ladle into mugs and enjoy.
