I'm not about to share a recipe for raspberry marshmallows, and then not give you something boozy and delicious to float them in!
I made white hot chocolate the other day, because I've always loved the white stuff more than the dark stuff. I made a few cups of it, and then finally reached for some booze to jazz it up. My first grab was peppermint schnapps, which was fun--- stir it with a candy cane, and you're basically drinking peppermint bark. But my next reach was Chambord. I love the black raspberry liquor from France called Chambord. It's pretty delicious in almost anything. Especially in white hot cocoa. Especially when that white hot chocolate has raspberry marshmallows floating on top.
Raspberries and white chocolate were made for each other. This reminds me of my mini mason jar tarts with white chocolate and raspberry jam swirls. But, I may even like this more because: booze.
I'm going to leave it up to you to decide just how much raspberry liquor to add. The only thing is--you must add it at right before serving, or it will curdle. So, do a little sip sip, pour, sip sip, pour until you get it juuuuuuuust right.
I'm dreaming of a way to get this into a hot chocolate bomb form. Wouldn't it be so fun to give boozy hot cocoa gifts?
My final plea is to use real white chocolate. Not the chips. Chocolate chips are designed not to melt, so buy a bar of your favorite white stuff (mine is Lindt), and let it slowly melt into the milk.
Stay toasty, my friends!
Raspberry White Hot Cocoa
Move over hot cocoa, white hot chocolate is even better!
- 3.5 ounce bar of real white chocolate, chopped
- 1 ¾ cup half and half (or whole milk)
- 2 shots Chambord (raspberry liquor)
- raspberry marshmallows for garnish
- Chop the white chocolate into ½" pieces.
- Warm the half and half over medium heat in a small saucepan. Let a few bubbles form along the edges, but do not let it boil.
- Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the chopped chocolate.
- Cover, and let sit for a few minutes to melt the chocolate.
- Remove the lid and stir.
- Divide the mixture between two glasses, add a shot of Chambord to each, and serve with raspberry marshmallows.

Wowzers! I just love this! So decadent with Chambord and the addition of the homemade raspberry marshmallows- my kind of hot cocoa! ;)
I have ruined my fair share of white chocolate chips trying to melt them hahaa :)

Firstly, I totally forgot how much I enjoy Chambord until I read this post! I need to get my hands on a bottle, and a bar (or two) of Lindt (it's my favourite white chocolate too :) ) and then get the hot cocoa party started! The only thing that could make it better would be snow (it's about 95F here in Australia today) and perhaps a cocoa date with you and Camille :)
This sounds amazing! I am so wanting to go home and make it right this minute. Now you should create a white chocolate truffle with chambord...if that's possible. Just saying... :)

I'm so into that idea! :)
It has been ages since I had Chambord, please remind me what it taste like. When we have another day of deep south winter I will make white chocolate, too!! Thanks everyone for sharing!!

You'll love it! It's black raspberry liquor :)

Oh my...looks so fabulous. I am dying for those marshmallows!
I need this. It is not only delicious-looking, but it matches my outfit today. #mustbeasign
