How To Make salted caramel hot chocolate

  • Caramel poured into a mug.
    Pour 2 tsp of caramel topping into a mug (can use more or less).
  • Heating milk and cocoa.
    Pour 1 cup milk and 3 Tbsp cocoa powder into a saucepan. Stir, then heat until hot and frothy.
  • Adding sugar to cocoa mixture in the mug.
    Pour cocoa mixture into a mug. Add sugar then stir (can use more or less sugar. the amount I've provided will make a slightly bitter hot chocolate).
  • Topping with whipped cream, more caramel, and a pinch of salt.
    Add whip cream then top with about 1/8th tsp of sea salt, and drizzle with more caramel sauce! (Personally, I like to add my salt before my whipped cream so I don't get a mouthful of salt.)
