White-Chocolate Hot Cocoa with Coconut and Rum

Creamy white chocolate steps in for the usual chocolate in this variation of hot cocoa. Coconut milk adds a tropical touch, and rum gives the drink an extra shot of warmth.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 10 mins
  • servings: 2




  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 ounces white chocolate, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon rum

Cook's Note

Look for good white chocolate made with pure cocoa butter (rather than vegetable fat), milk, sugar, and a touch of vanilla.


  1. Step 1

    Warm milk, coconut milk, and cream in a medium saucepan over a medium-low heat. Add chocolate, and whisk until melted and combined. Continue to warm mixture until thick, about 5 minutes. Whisk in rum.
