I love salted caramel: chocolate, fudge, ice cream-you add salted caramel to it and I’m pretty sure I will like it. So I made some salted caramel hot chocolate. So good! I just used my favorite homemade hot chocolate recipe and added in some caramel and sea salt.

Homemade Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate:

recipe source: {





1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup white sugar

1 pinch salt

1/3 cup boiling water

3 1/2 cups milk

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup half and half 

2 tbs caramel topping (add more or less to your liking)

1/2 tsp sea salt (add more or less to your liking)

homemade whipped topping

Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla, caramel and sea salt. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature. Top with whipped topping and chocolate shavings or caramel.
