Blizzard Cocoa

This whiteout cocoa is the perfect drink for a snow day. Swapping dark chocolate for white creates a milky spin on the classic hot cocoa, while all-white garnishes of homemade whipped cream and marshmallows add a pop of colorless fun. Spiked with white rum and a bit of vanilla, it's easy to get lost in the flavor of this whiteout.
