Coconut Caramel Hot Chocolate

I know you wish you could lick your screen right now, and trust me – so do I! We love making this delicious drink 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 cocoa, 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 and go for a homemade hot cocoa recipe.

  1. To make this recipe, you will start by heating milk in a saucepan over low heat. Let it come almost to a simmer where little bubbles are starting to form around the edges. Do not let the milk boil as it will scorch and won’t be any good.
  2. For this drink, I used one part nonfat milk and one part coconut Milk, then I added milk chocolate chips and caramel sauce and let them melt into the warm milk while you whisk it to keep it from scorching. If you don’t like coconut milk you could use regular milk for the whole thing.
  3. 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!
