Raspberry White Hot Chocolate Recipe
12 oz. raspberries, fresh or defrosted from frozen
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
6 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped*
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sprinkle the sugar on the raspberries and toss to combine. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, until they start to soften and release their juices.
Blend the raspberries in a blender. Then pour the puree through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the seeds. You should be left with about 3/4 cup of raspberry puree. If you have more, save it for another use.
Combine the milk and cream in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer— but don’t bring it to a full boil. Remove from the heat. Add the white chocolate. Whisk until the chocolate is melted. Add the berry puree, vanilla extract, and salt.
Serve immediately with whipped cream and fresh berries on top. It can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for up to a week. Reheat it in the microwave or on the stove top.
*For the best taste and texture, do not substitute white chips for the chopped white chocolate bar. White chocolate chips tend to be hard to melt.
