Our Favorite Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Recipe














My pajamas (size up)  | My houseshoes | Sleep Mask (exact one sold out) | Pillows | Coffee Mugs | Couch | Fitz PJs via Fabdog | Kitchen Rug  | Grey Cardigan | Flats 

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!

  19. 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.
