SALTED CARAMEL HOT CHOCOLATE

I love salted caramel: chocolate, fudge, ice cream-you add salted caramel to it and I'm pretty sure I will like it. So I made some salted caramel hot chocolate. So good! I just used my favorite homemade hot chocolate recipe and added in some caramel and sea salt.

Homemade Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate:
recipe source: {here}

Ingredients:
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup half and half 
2 tbs caramel topping (add more or less to your liking)
1/2 tsp sea salt (add more or less to your liking)
homemade whipped topping

Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla, caramel and sea salt. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature. Top with whipped topping and chocolate shavings or caramel.
