this holiday season will go down in history as the one I perfected my hot cocoa recipe. let it be known, I believe FULLY in powdered hot cocoa mixes. I say it’s all about the toppings! once your hot cocoa mix is perfectly stirred, that’s when the fun begins.
marshmallows are a staple. caramel drizzle is decadent. whipped cream is a treat, but rarely on hand – until this season. we are keeping a tub in the freezer for spur of the moment hot cocoa cravings. like tonight, when we get home from our six hour road trip. while we are unpacking suitcases + doing laundry. a large cup of this scrumptious hot cocoa will make the post-holiday chores a bit more bearable.
4 steps to the best hot cocoa:
add a healthy scoop of whipped topping
toss in a handful of mini marshmallows
drizzle with caramel sauce
add a dash of sea salt
the chocolate chips + festive sprinkles are for fun. they’re not essential. the ingredients you don’t want to skip are: whipped topping, marshmallows, caramel sauce + sea salt. this will be the perfect salted caramel hot cocoa right in the comfort of your own home. cozy up in front of the fireplace, under a warm blanket + indulge in a large cup of hot cocoa. after all, it’s wintertime!
