Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
A Sprinkle of This and That

Ingredients for 2 large mugs:

2 cups 2% milk

3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup sugar

sea salt

4 ounces milk chocolate bar

caramel sauce

1 cup heavy whipping cream


In a saucepan, pour in milk.  Whisk in cocoa powder, sugar, a sprinkle of sea salt, 1 Tbsp caramel sauce and milk chocolate.  Heat over medium heat until hot.  Stir occasionally.  Meanwhile, with an electric mixer, whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.  This will take 10-15 minutes but is soooo worth it! No sugar needed.  Pour salted caramel hot chocolate into two mugs.  Top with whipped cream.  Drizzle on caramel sauce.  Sprinkle just a little sea salt. 

Add chocolate sprinkles if desired.
