Lavender Honey White Hot Chocolate

This lavender honey white hot chocolate was inspired by a lavender honey latte I had at a coffee shop in South Carolina a few weeks ago. I already love growing and using lavender (I added 4 plants outside this year!), and this combination of floral, warm, sweet and creamy was literal perfection.

I’m honestly not a huge fan of white chocolate, and prefer dark chocolate. However, for this recipe I thought it’d be best. And wow was it ever! Also, I am such a honey snob because I only like to use Greek honey. You can find some here, and I used it in this pear tart recipe, too. Once you have it you will thank me! It has this unique herbal flavor that is just divine and like nothing you’ve ever tasted.

And this is how you take blog pictures with a 2 year old. He is like a magnet to the chocolate, I swear! So, just like in my peach lavender wine slushie (recipe here), I made an infused simple syrup. The only difference is this time it’s made with honey instead of sugar.

What’s great about simple syrups is you can infuse them with whatever flavor you desire. Then you have them easily on hand to use in whatever you like. Personally, I prefer a simply syrup in my drinks because it is a one time simmer/strain vs. having to do those steps each time you make a hot drink or other recipe. If you need culinary lavender you can find it here.
