Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa

Sunday, November 13, 2011

One of the best revelations here recently: boiling sweetened condensed milk turns it into the most DELICIOUS caramel sauce. It's so perfect! All you do is pop an unopened can or two into a pot of water and boil it for 2-2 1/2 hours (make sure it stays underwater the whole time) and then enjoy! An unopened can will last up to 5 months- but I can't resist opening them and eating them immediately! We have had apples + caramel, ice cream with caramel, and homemade salted caramel hot cocoas almost every day! I adapted the recipe from Beautiful Mess to include my new yummy caramel.

Makes 1 serving:

In a small pan, heat 1/2 cup of milk, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, and a pinch or two of sea salt. Whisk until completely melted, then add another 1/2 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of your yummy homemade caramel (or store-bought caramel sauce). Continue heating and stirring until warmed thoroughly then pour into a mug. Top with whipped cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, and sprinkle a bit of sea salt on. 

So good!
