Who doesn’t love hot chocolate this time of year? I recently discovered THESE little bits of caramel chocolate heaven and I knew in an instant they would make a perfect new mix-in for our movie night hot chocolate! With the flavors of coconut and caramel, this drink tastes just like a Samoas Girl Scout Cookie! This delicious hot chocolate recipe is sure to become a new favorite.
I know you wish you could lick your screen right now, and trust me – so do I! We love making hot chocolate around the holidays. There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a warm blanket watch Elf, eating popcorn and sipping hot chocolate! I wish I could say that I have a spectacular base recipe for hot chocolate, but I usually use…shhhhh…the packet mix! Promise you won’t share my secret mmkay?
I decided I wanted to try something a little different this time. For this Coconut Caramel Hot Chocolate, I used one part nonfat milk, and one part Coconut Milk. I added Nestle DelightFulls Caramel Filled Morsels and let them melt into the warm milk. That’s it!
Of course you can’t have hot chocolate without whipped cream (we definitely prefer it to marshmallows!). Toasted coconut and a drizzle of caramel sauce top it off to make the most decadent hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted!
If you haven’t tried Nestle DelightFulls, you really should! They are AMAZING in this hot chocolate, and guess what?? I’ve got another hot chocolate recipe that I’ll share with you a little later. If you want to try this recipe, there’s a coupon for 50 cents off a package. (To get the coupon, click the link, then click on PRODUCTS and select any package. The coupon is at the bottom of the page). There are also tons of recipes to try out that are sure to become new family favorites this holiday season.
They are quite tasty in cookies, brownies or just about anything else that you’d put regular chocolate chips in! Have you tried them?
