Let’s be real — the filling is the best part of an Oreo! We’ve taken that rich Oreo creme filling and created a luscious White Hot Chocolate that’s guaranteed to warm you up on a cold winter day!
Oreo Creme Hot Chocolate
I’m always amazed that when offered a choice between chocolate or vanilla (ice cream, cupcakes, etc.), my youngest daughter always chooses vanilla. I’m a chocoholic, so I always go for the “good stuff” — chocolate!!
With one exception…
Oreo creme hot cocoa….our version of white hot cocoa.
This white hot cocoa is soooooo much richer than regular hot chocolate! That’s because it’s made from a decadent combination of creamy whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, and melted white chocolate.
But what really makes this the BEST white hot chocolate are the Oreos. That’s right — we mixed Oreo creme filling into our already delicious cocoa for a drink that is absolutely heavenly! Seriously…I think it’s even better than Starbucks white hot chocolate!
Fellow chocoholics, take note: this stuff is legit!!!

How to Make White Chocolate Hot Cocoa
- Add liquid ingredients to a saucepan over medium heat.
- Remove the creme from your Oreos (save the cookie part…we’ll use them later) and add the creme to pan of liquid ingredients, along with white chocolate chips.
- Whisk your white hot cocoa as it heats up, you want the chocolate chips to melt, but remove from heat before it starts to boil.
- Pour into a mug and finish with whipped cream and crumbled Oreo cookies.
Make it dairy free!
If you’re lactose intolerant like me, try this adaption:
- Sub your favorite non-dairy milk for whole milk (I love cashew milk!)
- Sub condensed coconut milk (try this recipe I use for non-dairy Vietnamese coffee) for regular condensed milk.
- Use non-dairy whipped topping in place of whipped cream. (I use Cool Whip, because it is lactose-freel; however there are dairy-derived ingredients, so skip if you have a dairy allergy).
- Look for vegan/non-dairy white chocolate and chocolate chips.
Did You Know? Believe it or not, there’s no dairy in the creme filling of Oreos! They’re dairy free and vegan!
