Harvest White Hot Chocolate

We just had the yummiest, "Autumniest" treat...
White Hot Chocolate spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg
with some frozen Orange & Candy Corn whipped cream!

The best part? If you are watching your fat/calories, you can substitute fat free half & half and use a tub of fat free cool whip to make this delicious treat guilt free!

1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
4 cups half-and-half (you can also substitute fat-free half and half and it’s good!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground nutmeg

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine white chocolate chips, half and half, and heavy cream (or fat free half and half if you are cutting fat/calories). Stir often until white chocolate chips have completely melted. Stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir occasionally until heated through. Pour into cups and top with a dallop of frozen Harvest Whipped Cream (recipe below).

The fabulous Bridget over at Bakeat350 put it into my head that I could freeze whipping cream for later use....I thought "PERFECT for hot drinks, it won't melt as fast!". Thanks, Bridget!:)
Put heavy cream and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl, beat on high speed for 2 minutes, until fluffy and firm. Add orange zest and a few drops orange food coloring (optional)Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet lined in wax paper. Sprinkle with candy corn and place in freezer.
