This is my favorite way to drink a hot cocoa
there simply is nothing better.
Of course I stole the idea from starbucks
in the hey days of Tastebuds…
this was a best seller
and every saturday night…
I would make literally 100′s of them.
I miss those days behind the counter….
But tonight after a day of being snowed in
stuck inside playing endless rounds of “doll” & “kitchen”
as I tried to read a new book in-between eating my ”chicken with eggs” & feeding my “baby”
all I crave is a quiet Saturday night
catching up on all the writing that I have pushed off last week…
curled up in front of my computer …
with a Huge cup of this Salted Carmel Mocha with extra extra whip!
The other day I found this at target….
it is good – but not as good as my recipe LOL
Here is to a Productive Saturday Night!
Salted Caramel Mocha
2-oz hot espresso
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp caramel sauce
8-oz hot milk
additional caramel sauce and loads of fresh whip cream, for topping
coarse sea salt, for topping
In a large mug, whisk together espresso, cocoa powder, sugar and caramel sauce until all of the sugar has dissolved. Top with steamed milk.
Add heaping mound of whip cream to the top, drizzle with caramel sauce and add a big pinch of salt A as garnish..
*Note: Or you can heat up some milk, place a little of your favorite chocolate at the bottom of your cup. drizzle some caramel and pour in the hot milk and hot espresso. Mix and combine the melting chocolate with the milk and espresso well. Throw in a pinch of salt and top with whip cream, more caramel drizzle and salt – YUM!
