Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
I love hot chocolate. Whether it is a classic white hot chocolate, amaretto hot chocolate, Kahlua hot chocolate, etc, I will drink it. Now I have got to say, the classic salted caramel hot chocolate is a favorite of mine that I loved ordering from coffee shops when I was a hid because it was just the perfect combination of flavors. As an adult, I definitely still gravitate towards it when making hot chocolates at home because it is just so yummy!
Now the great thing about this recipe is that it is super customizable. You can add a bit of your favorite alcohol or even double or triple the recipe depending on how many people you are serving.
