Packaged in a festive tin or cellophane bag, this is a colourful, sweet gift. Check the ingredient list when buying white chocolate. It should include cocoa butter, sugar, dry milk solids and vanilla. Avoid less-expensive white chocolate, which is usually whiter than good-quality cream-colour white chocolate, because vegetable fats have replaced some or all of the cocoa butter.
