Make sure to use a good quality cocoa for this one. The better the cocoa the better the outcome.

Please don't be tempted to not use the SALT...it enhances the dark depths of the bittersweet chocolate and the sweet golden caramel.

The alcohol in this drink is strictly optional. It is so good both ways, you won't be sorry.
