How about some white chocolate coffee to serve your guests at Christmas? This is best made fresh but you can stir the ingredients together ahead of time and wait until serving time to steam it. Experiment with this versatile dessert drink by adding Hershey Kisses or peppermint chips to the coffee. Use your imagination and see what flavors you can come up with.
