Reluctant Housewife: Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
Updated: Mar 21, 2019
So in L.A. the nights are starting to get colder and the mornings are starting to look misty. It feels like we should all be headed back to school any day now, even if school's only a faint memory.
In fact, it's gotten so cold that the other night at a Dodger game I couldn't help but want that very first warm drink of the season.
I'm taking the month off of caffeine which limits my frothy treats at night. But, then I remembered out of the cobwebs of my mind, something I haven't thought about drinking since I was in school... Hot chocolate.
Wow! Hello old friend! Suddenly I was a kid again and wondering where I could find such a glorious treat. Who needs coffee when you can have CHOCOLATE??!
My ovaries thanked me later.
This Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is what my mind danced around making while watching the Dodgers play that night. It'll take you back in time-- just in time-- to go back to school.
