Salted caramel hot chocolate.

Salted caramel hot chocolate recipe

Seriously, whoever the first person was to combine salt with caramel should give themselves a big pat on the back. It's delicious. I've been looking at salted caramel recipes on Pinterest recently and honestly there are hundreds. Salted caramel cookies, salted caramel brownies, salted caramel pies, cakes, cocktails, ice cream. The list goes on. Anyway I've been dying to try out some of these recipes and thought for my first attempt I'd keep it simple and go for the hot chocolate. I think it's safe to say that it was a success!

All you need to make a batch of this hot chocolate is milk, cream, chocolate (half plain, half caramel), and salt! Plus any extras you might want for the topping. Being the amateur that I am, I didn't use specific quantities or follow a proper recipe for this. Whoops! But I think it's pretty easy to just wing it with this sort of thing anyway.

I used my glasses (well... jars) to measure out the milk and cream. I went half and half. So that's one glass milk another glass cream. To be honest next time I think I'd go without cream and just use milk because it was pretty rich and filling! But if that's how you swing then hey, why not go to whole hog! Skip the milk and just use cream. That's the beauty of my lack of professional recipe, you can do what you want!

Anyway literally all I did was break up the chocolate and put it in a pan with the milk, cream and a pinch of salt, turned up the heat and stirred until it was all melted and combined together. Then I just brought it to the boil so it was hot enough to drink and poured it all back into the glasses (jars). All finished off with some squirty cream, a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of salt! Yum!

If you're still a little bit cautious of the salt and caramel combination then you can always leave the salt out. But I recommend you try it. You might be pleasantly surprised!
