  8. Add sugar, cinnamon and salt in it and mix it well.
  9. Add vanilla essence and white chocolate in the saucepan and remove it from the heat. Stir it properly till the chocolate melts.
  10. Pour in a cup and enjoy. You can sprinkle some spices on top and mix it away with a cinnamon stick too.

When it will rest for sometime, it will automatically thicken.
