Starbuck's Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate
Jenny introduced me to this drink - I don't even care that much for hot chocolate, but I find myself craving this one. As Jenny says, order a "short", which leaves you wanting for more - a regular is just too much.
and I just love the internet; I found this recipe:
Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Copycat Recipe
2/3 cup whole milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
3 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar crystals
1/4 cup whipped cream
2 tablespoons caramel syrup, divided
Bring the milk and cream to a simmer. Keep it just under a boil and stir in the chocolate until melted completely.
Add one tablespoon of the caramel syrup to a warm mug and swish it to coat the inside of the mug.
Carefully pour in the chocolate. Top with whipped cream, add a drizzle of caramel, a sprinkle of the salt and a dusting of the turbinado crystals.
Enjoy the fact that while Starbucks *may* stop making this delicacy you never have to!
