Sugar Plum White Chocolate Cocoa made with delicious Ghiradelli white chocolate and topped with a homemade cotton candy whip cream is a dream dessert for a sugar plum fairy!

Making hot cocoa is one of our most favorite way to get creative in the kitchen in the cold winter months. We loved making Red Velvet Hot Cocoa and Cookies and Cream Hot Cocoa. We even made Hot Cocoa Cookies!

The Sugar Plum Fairy is our favorite character from the new Nutcracker movie. She is beautiful and so colorful! If you have a little girl who just adored her like we did, she will love making this fun treat.

How to make Sugar Plum White Chocolate Cocoa

Doesn’t this pretty pink white chocolate cocoa look delicious? Do not let this recipe trick you into thinking it’s hard to make – it isn’t! In fact, it is a simple combination of just four ingredients. I will be willing to bet that you actually have some version of all of them in your kitchen right now!

The cotton candy whipped cream is also super simple: just whip together heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar. To make it look and taste like cotton candy, just add a bit of pink food coloring and cotton candy extract (you can find that at Hobby Lobby or Walmart).

Want to make this without making a trip to the store? Just leave the extract out – it tastes great no matter what!

When you are looking for new recipes to make on a snow day, this one will warm your belly. Hot cocoa can be made in so many ways with so many different flavor options. Our homemade white chocolate cocoa has become one of our top favorites.

If you’re feeling especially creative today you can make a floating marshmallow snowman to put on top or your cocoa. Heck, we like making them even we aren’t having cocoa!

Tell us about your favorite cocoa recipe and let us know if you try this one!
