Vanilla Cocoa
  The pleasure of this warming drink comes as much from it's creamy, smooth texture as its sweet, vanilla flavor. Use the highest quality while chocolate you can find.  
Makes eight 6oz drinks

  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 12oz white chocolate, chopped into small pieces, plus some for garnish

  • 4oz Godiva White Chocolate Liquer

  • 4oz licor 43

  • additional-vanilla vodka syrup, or vanila syrup, or simple syrup

  • Cocoa powder for garnish

  • milk 24 oz

  • Mugs

  • pinch of salt

  • Whipped cream or marshmallow fluff

Shave the white chocolate with a vegetable peeler, set the shavings aside. Place the milk, syrup, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring regularly, until the mixture is hot, about 5 minutes. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape out the seeds, and add them to the pot. Save the leftover bean for another use. Add the white chocolate and cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted completely. Stir in the liquors, if desired, and ladle into mugs. Top with whipped cream, sprinkle with cocoa powder, and serve
