White chocolate milk with spices

White chocolate milk with spices|

Let me start by explaining that over here in the Netherlands tonight is the night we are celebrating ‘Sinterklaas’. Which is not the same as Santa Claus (even though it sounds vaguely familair) but has a lot to do with presents, poems and fun for kids. We haven’t celebrated Sinterklaas in ages because it really is a kids thing, but we do celebrate Christmas with friends every year and than include kind of a few of the Sinterklaas tradition in it (like having a chocolate letter and such) We’ve been doing that for 11 years now and it’s always fun. Love traditions like that! So to celebrate a little bit of Sinterklaas I thought I share this delicious white chocolate milk with you today. Which incidentally goes perfect with Christmas as well.. 😉 White chocolate milk with spices |

It is a white chocolate milk. I made this based on a recipe from the Modern Mrs Cleaver in a slowcooker and o good is this! Due to the long time in the slowcooker the flavors of the spices have really infused well. It is a fairly sweet drink but hey, it’s chocolate milk after all so that is supposed to be sweet. Perfect for a cold winter’s eve or a festive christmas drink. The amount you find below makes a good 5-6 large mugs.

If you have no slowcooker you can ofcourse make this also on the stove. Heat everything very very slowly and let it simmer for a while. Turn of the gas and let the spices infuse in the liquid for a couple of hours. Turn the heat back on and reheat the chocolate milk. Remove the spices and drink!


  • 300 gram white chocolate
  • 3 cups of full fat milk
  • 3 cups of heavy cream
  • 1,5 tbsp of vanilla essence
  • 2 star anise
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 tsp cardemom
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • double cream for garnish
  • cinnamon powder for dusting


  1. Break the white chocolate in smaller parts and place in the bottom of your slowcooker.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients to it except the cream. Cover and cook on low for about 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes or so.
  3. A skin will form on the cocao but that should dissolve again if you stir it. You can keep this warm for several hours.
