Make-Ahead Magic

The martini glasses can be rimmed with the melted white chocolate and refrigerated up to 4 hours ahead of time.

Festive Touch

Before the white chocolate has a chance to set, dip the glass rims into a small shallow bowl of grated white chocolate mixed with white sanding sugar, holiday sprinkles or crushed peppermint candies.
