This is a very favorite winter drink of mine. Sometimes, in my family, we will make this in the middle of summer when we're craving something sweet and comforting. It's got a gentle, yet smooth, taste to it and is sure to please anyone who loves white chocolate and orange. For myself, I make a soy milk version of this since I cannot handle dairy and I love it. Serve immediately and top with orange zest, marshmallows, or whipped cream if you wish.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pour milk into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until starting to bubble, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add white chocolate. Cook, stirring continuously, until chocolate is fully melted, about 15 minutes. Add orange extract; cook and stir until incorporated, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.


Cook's Notes:

Feel free to use skim or 2% milk if need be. This also works well with coconut milk or soy milk for those who are lactose intolerant.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can alter the recipe by substituting the orange extract with other extract flavors like cherry, lemon, almond, vanilla, or mint.

I didn't think that this would turn out as delicious as it is. Very easy to make with only 3 ingredients and less than 10 minutes. The only fault I found with this is the timing. My white chocolate melted in less than 5 minutes and the orange extract was incorporated within 1 minute. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
