Better Than Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Hi! It's Jilly. It's snowing again here which can only mean one thing. Well, it can mean lots of things, but the thing we are going to talk about is HOT CHOCOLATE!

I love hot chocolate. Seriously. I would marry it. No, I wouldn't. That would be just weird. But, I do love it a lot. It's super tasty, and it also reminds me of some of my awesome friends from Arizona, so that makes it even better.

A while back I had my first Starbucks hot chocolate EVER. Yes, shocking I know.

Hi! It's Jilly and Starbucks Hot Chocolate

It was delicious, but I thought to myself, "I could make this better and cheaper at home." So, I did. And now you can, too.

  1. Nice! Starbucks is seriously so expensive. When I was in (med) school, it was the only coffee option, so I had to pony up. Now? Sooo much cheaper to make coffee at home!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe...looks good!

  2. Stopping by from WW blog hop. Thanks for this recipe!! I LOVE salted caramel anything. It's my latest addiction. Have a great day! Stacie xo

  3. I need to try this. I am a Starbucks snob, but this might actually be yummy! I love their salted caramel hot chocolate. You should come and link up to Must Try Monday.

  4. I will have to try this because their salted caramel mocha is my favorite drink ever! I think I actually have all these ingredients in my house right now. I do think the salt and caramel topping is important, but I could figure out how to replicate that part with a little caramel syrup and fancy salt. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Yes, you will definitely have to experiment! I put all kinds of things in my hot chocolate. I love it! Let me know what you come up with for the topping!

  5. OK so I am your newest follower because of this alone.
    I love you.
    I do.
    This is my all time fave hot chocolate.
    So I am indebted to you.

  6. That is my favorite Starbucks drink! Can't wait to try it! Pinning!
