Pat treated us to Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate
Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Copycat Recipe
2/3 cup whole milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
3 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar crystals
1/4 cup whipped cream
2 tablespoons caramel syrup, divided
Bring the milk and cream to a simmer. Keep it just under a boil and stir in the chocolate until melted completely.
Add one tablespoon of the caramel syrup to a warm mug and swish it to coat the inside of the mug.
Carefully pour in the chocolate.
Top with whipped cream, add a drizzle of caramel, a sprinkle of the salt and a dusting of the turbinado crystals.
Enjoy the fact that while Starbucks *may* stop making this delicacy ... you never have to!
