A FEW TIPS….
Very Important……be sure to stir the mixture as it heats up to prevent the milk from burning.
Add just a pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla extract to give more flavor to the white chocolate.
No white chocolate chips then just use a chopped white chocolate bar.
Use some red food coloring if you cannot find pink. Use just a little bit at first until you get the right color or pink you want.
