Love a warm steaming mug of drinking chocolate? Then you must try today’s Drinking Caramel Recipe, a silky caramelized dessert in a mug!
If you’ve ever tried thick luxurious drinking chocolate, (As in, the cousin of hot chocolate, but much more intense.) you are going to want to kiss my face when you taste my Drinking Caramel Recipe.
That’s right. Rich creamy caramel… That you sip.
The next time you entertain, instead of slaving over appetizers, dinner, and an elaborate dessert, why not focus on the savory stuff.
Then make a quick batch of Drinking Caramel to pour into espresso cups for a lavish liquid dessert that takes only 10 minutes to make!
This Drinking Caramel Recipe is thick and creamy with a touch of salt, yet not as dense as caramel sauce, so you can sip away.
It’s satisfying, even in small shot-sized portions. That way you won’t break your calorie bank, so to speak.
You can also add a nip of your favorite liquor for kicks and giggles. (I would go with bourbon.)
Or swirl it with homemade drinking chocolate for a steaming chocolate-caramel sensation!
To make this Drinking Caramel Recipe, start with Wholesome!™ Organic Light Brown Sugar and a little water. Boil the sugar to dissolve the crystals and develop a deep caramel flavor.
I love using Wholesome!™ sweeteners in desserts. They allow me to feel good about serving clean chemical-free non-gmo recipes to my friends and family, even in treat form!
Once the boiling liquified sugar has deep toasted aroma, whisk in cream, sea salt, and vanilla extract.
Simmer another couple minutes to thicken and… Viola!
Silky, indulgent, liquid caramel that you just cannot get enough of.
Consider making it for Valentine’s Day this year. Imagine you and your sweetie sitting by the fire with little mugs of Drinking Caramel in hand.
