Valentine's White Hot Chocolate

My sweet Devilish Dish Assistant Emily came over for dinner the other night.  She is your typical 13 year-old girl.  She loves anything cute, pink, heart-shaped or sweet.  You know with whipped cream and sprinkles on top?  So we had a "Make Your Own Calzone Bar" with all of the traditional pizza toppings.  Only to be cheesy, girly, Valentine-y and nontraditional, we made them heart-shaped.  There was only about a tablespoon of filling in each one, and the pizza dough wasn't really made for the heart-shaped pie maker, and we didn't get enough to eat.  But we won't go there.  We'll talk about how fun and cute and heart-themed our meal was.  Thankfully since we were still hungry, we made Valentine's White Hot Chocolate for dessert.  It was rich.  Super rich.  Like serve in a demi-tasse cup and not a jumbo mug rich.  I told Emily's mom the menu and she replied, "You are going to be her hero."  And I was.  We had so much fun making and CONSUMING our Valentine's Hot Chocolate.  And YES, we topped it with whipped cream, pink sprinkles and pink heart-shaped marshmallows because we're cool like that.  OH yeah.  And a few cookies on the side.
What's better than a mug of warm white hot chocolate?
