Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Melt white vanilla baking chips carefully. They burn easily, so be sure to cook over low heat, and stir constantly.
  • tip 2
    Use 1/3 cup peppermint schnapps for the 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract in the hot chocolate to make a delicious adult drink.
