Though it doesn't look like chocolate, white chocolate is indeed a product of the cocoa bean. Real white chocolate is ivory-colored rather than pure white, because its chief ingredient, cocoa butter, is actually yellow. Cheaper versions of white chocolate substitute some or all of the cocoa butter for vegetable fat, so be sure to read ingredient labels. Browse our collection of desserts starring white chocolate, including cookies, candy, sherbet, cake, frosting, and more.
Are you looking for a dazzling treat that's a snap to make? This familiar favorite is perfect: Just melt, stir and swirl. The salted peanuts provide a simple counterbalance to the sweetness of eddied white and dark chocolates. Get the packaging how-to for the Winter Bark.
