What do you call a hot cup of liquid deliciousness when it isn’t hot chocolate? Heaven. Or just plain dessert is fine by me. Today we’re calling it hot Coconut Cream Pie.
This cup of goodness originally started out as an idea for hot chocolate. Then I began tasting ingredients, playing with an idea and holy smokes Batman! This warm and creamy Coconut Cream Pie sensation just about knocked my socks off.
I wanted to create a quick and easy white hot chocolate without taking the time to melt chocolate and heat heavy cream. Sweetened condensed milk makes a great base for sweet and creamy hot drinks. Sweetened condensed milk tastes a little like white chocolate chips in my opinion. Add boiling water, complementary flavors and instant gratification is a heartbeat away. This Coconut Cream Pie is smooth, creamy and decadently delicious.
Dessert just got dangerously delicious!
