Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

I must say that I am very happy with the presents I got for my family this year.  Last year, I had zero inspiration and pretty much got everyone gift cards.

Nothing against gift cards, I actually love to receive gift cards, but this year I was able to find presents for everyone without breaking the bank.

It has been nice to be finished with my shopping so early this year and to be able to sit back, relax and drink some hot chocolate.  
This is exactly what you need to warm up your whole body, especially on a snowy day like today. 

The flavor is incredible.

You will love it.

This is my last post before Christmas and I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday surrounded by Family and Friends.  
Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)

1 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. light brown sugar
4 oz. chocolate and caramel squares
1/4 tsp. salt
4 c. milk

Optional Toppings
mini marshmallows
caramel sauce
whipped cream

Heat heavy cream, light brown sugar, chocolate squares and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently.  Once chocolate is melted and sugar is dissolved, add the milk.  Continue to heat over medium-low heat until warmed through.  Divide between 3-4 cups and garnish with desired toppings.

Jenn's Notes: I used a 4 oz. bar of Cadbury Caramel and Chocolate squares and the flavor was incredible.  You can use your favorite brand or you could even use different flavors (mint, orange, raspberry) or types of chocolate (milk, dark, white) to switch up the flavor.
