Someone told us today was White Chocolate Day. Not that we need an excuse to eat chocolate, but we did need some inspiration on how we could have it for every meal, because really, why not?! White chocolate is the sweeter, creamier, lighter cousin of milk chocolate. Ok, so it may be an opinion that it’s sweeter and creamier, but we can guarantee it’s lighter.
In honour of the day, why not mix a bit into your coffee? Dish up a delicious white chocolate dessert? Or fit in into breakfast or dinner?
If you’re anything like me, you don’t even want to speak to anyone until you’ve had your cup of coffee. Fitting with the white chocolate theme, this Peppermint White Chocolate Latte will not only wake you up, but have you feeling Christmasy even in September.

Now, I can’t deliver a white chocolate lunch or dinner without really just serving dessert for both meals. But, what I can do is give you a few ideas for white chocolate snacks that you can pack or serve as a dessert nibble after lunch and then give you a brilliant white chocolate dessert to serve after tea.
This White Chocolate Bark recipe from Food Network is the perfect mix of healthy and not so healthy.

Perfect treats for kids, just be aware they melt quite quickly and could be a mess with little ones.
