When you remove the cocoa liquor from milk chocolate, you end up with white chocolate, which has a creamy, rich taste.
Who would have known? Melt white chocolate with a little shortening to keep it from separating. In a microwave-safe glass bowl, add 1 teaspoon shortening to 1 cup white chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds. If the chips are not soft, try again for 15 seconds. (Once chips are soft, stop heating and stir until smooth.)
Ideal wine pairings:
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc
Double Peppermint Crunch Cookies
