John doesn’t drink coffee at all but loves hot chocolate so last month we tried some different hot chocolate recipes. Its the season for festive, hot drinks and I wanted to have some fun drink ideas for family gatherings. Anyway, we ended up loving this salted caramel hot chocolate recipe. What’s great is that you can refrigerate it and warm it up later! We I didn’t follow the exact directions (I hate directions) so I just bought all of the products and then winged it haha! It may be even better if you actually follow the exact steps!
 
Here’s what’s needed:
-1.5 Cups Granulated Sugar
-1/4 TSP Lemon Juice
-4 1/2 Cups Milk (We used 1% – it wasn’t quite room temp though..)
-8 oz. milk chocolate (we didn’t finally mill it though..)
-2 oz. dark chocolate 
-Big Pinch of Salt
-Whipped Cream & Caramel Sauce (optional)
 
Let me know if you try it and love it – or comment below with some of your favorite hot drink recipes for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!
 
This weekend we are heading to Arkansas to spend the weekend with family and go to the Razorback game!

  1. Love the post! I know that aerial shot had to be hard.. but it's very unexpected and original! I loved it. About your couch though.. What color did you get it in? I've been looking at that one for quite sometime trying to decide on the color.

  2. Love this post!' So fun and festive!! Really gets you in the holiday mood !! 2 questions, 1st dying to know that nail color… So beautiful!! And 2 I thought you had posted about a rug very close to that from Nordstorm that you were changing out for the holidays?? So I was surprised it was linked to a different site? Can't wait to see more holiday decor, gift guide and looks!! So blessed I found your blog!! Has changed my life and my wallet…???? But ALL WORTH IT!!

  3. I love hot chocolate. I tried making a red wine hot chocolate a week or so ago and it was just AWFUL. It was so thick. It was almost like trying to drink pudding. I'm definitely going to give this recipe a try this weekend.

  4. Hi Emily, I love your kitchen rug and am looking for a neutral rug for my bedroom. I noticed the link you provided isn't your exact rug, is yours no longer available? I would love to find it! Thanks!!

  5. I love your blog, you have great tips. I love your kitchen rug, can you please share the name of it? The link doesn't take you specifically to that rug. Thank you!
