Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

I recently shared the Homemade Chai Latte mix that I’m gifting this year, and today I have another holiday drink mix for you. The Salted Caramel Mocha is my favourite seasonal indulgence from Starbucks, and now I can enjoy it at home for a fraction of the cost. I have been enjoying a hot mug of this Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate nearly every evening. It’s so smooth and creamy with just the right hit of salt and caramel.

I used this recipe from Seeded at the Table, and it was really easy. I made the caramel, let it harden overnight and stuck it in the freezer for a couple hours before breaking it up and pulverizing in the food processor. I read that some people ran into issues with the caramel warming up and getting sticky, so I froze it first to ensure that I’d end up with a nice dry powder. It worked out perfectly. I like to use 2 tablespoons of the mix (instead of 3)  in a big mug of hot water (instead of a cup of milk) for a wonderfully rich, but not overly sweet or salty drink.

Along with the Homemade Chai Latte mix, this Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate would make a great Christmas gift, especially done up in a mason jar along with marshmallows and a little bottle of Baileys!

Homemade Chai Latte Mix

We’re really into the holiday season now! Days are short, but nights are long and busy with shopping, visiting, making, cooking, baking, eating, drinking.

I had bought these little bottles for something a few months ago, but didn’t end up using them, so I filled them up with a delicious homemade Chai Latte mix for gift add-ons.


I used this Chai Latte mix recipe from Show Me the Yummy. Simply grind, assemble and stir.

I think this is wonderfully creamy made with water. But use milk or add a splash of booze for a sweet and perfectly spicy Chai Latte.
