Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate

me on my couch.

Sup dudes!

It's that time of year when I get to sit outside in the FAAAAA-REEZING cold to watch field hockey. My bones are CALLING for warm drinks. Although I don't generally like to drink my calories, I really wanted a hot chocolate and although Dunk-a-chinos are good, I had all the ingredients so I made the real deal.

Ya need:

3/4ish cup sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa
3ish cups milk

Immersion blender.

1. melt butter in pot.
2. whisk in sugar and salt until that ish carmelizes. mine started to get clumpy a little- so I quick threw in the vanilla- stuff sizzled like fajita plates at the Ground Round! 
3. dump in cocoa. This turned it into almost candy...to try and salvage the chocolate soup, I poured in the milk and hit it all with my immersion blender. it frothed right up.
4. pour into cups.
