Half-and-half is half cream half milk. ( you don't actually mix it, it's sold like that)

Made this for the 1st time on New Years Eve for my husband and our one year old daughter. We were all three snuggled on the couch, watching the ball drop, in our jammies & enjoying this amazing hot chocolate. Two adults using mugs & the baby drinking from her bottle. It was too cute!! Thanks Paula for giving our family a new tradition!

One of the best ever! There is almost nothing better than white chocolate - unless it's hot chocolate made with condensed milk.
