Caramel Hot Chocolate

Doesn't this look delicious? I could sure cuddle up with a mug of this. I got this recipe from Cooking Classy. To see the entire tutorial and read the story behind the recipe, click on the link to visit Jaclyn's blog.

In the meantime, here is the recipe:

Yield: 2 Servings (recipe can easily be doubled)
  • 2 cups milk, preferably whole
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I recommend Ghirardelli)*
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce, recipe link follows
  • Sweetened whipped cream or vanilla marshmallows
  • Grated chocolate for garnish, optional
  • Caramel Sauce, recipe and step by step tutorial HERE (just leave the salt out if you don't want salted)
  • Prepare caramel sauce according to directions listed and allow to cool slightly. Heat milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once milk is warm, stir in chocolate chips and caramel, and cook whisking constantly until chocolate has melted. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm topped, topped with sweetened whipped cream or miniature marshmallows, drizzle each serving with 1 Tbsp caramel sauce and garnish with grated chocolate if desired.
  • *For a richer hot chocolate, you can use up to 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips and mix in more caramel sauce as well if desired.
