Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate



Well, this is the final post in my holiday hot chocolate series. I am not going to lie, I’ve kind of gotten used to my daily afternoon dose of homemade hot chocolate.  I have had so much fun making these delicious recipes- each time serving up just enough for each member of my family that was home at the time.

Something about a warm drink in the winter exudes a sense of comfort and safety.  You can wrap your fingers around that mug and feel some of the day’s stresses slip away.

I’m a firm believer in chasing what brings you joy, in slowing down for the little things that matter, and in taking at least a minute for yourself. I hope these recipes give you a sense of enjoyment, a chance to try something new, and a little bit of that comfort and safety that we all long for- especially around the holidays.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, from my rented kitchen to yours!

  1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat.

  3. Finally, stir in the Hershey kisses just until melted, and remove from heat.
