Dulce de Leche Hot Chocolate

The winds of winter are still blowing here in the South. Not that I mind as it is just the beginning of February and we have a long way to go until Spring. I love hot chocolate and am always looking for a new recipe. Last month I noticed a few recipes in Southern Living magazine that I thought I might try this scrumptious Dulce de Leche hot chocolate is one of them, it is easy and so delicious. You should make a cup or two over you long winter weekends.

Dulce de Leche Hot Chocolate
Recipe from Southern Living 


4 cups 1/2 & 1/2
1/2 cup canned or jared Dulce de Leche
8 oz. dark chocolate chopped
1/3 cup Drambuie optional
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Whisk together 4 cups of half and half and 1/2 cup canned or jared dulce de leche in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium, stirring constantly until heated through, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in 8 ounces of chopped dark chocolate, (optional 1/3 cup of Drambuie), 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt until the mixture is smooth. Next, beat 1 cup of cold heavy cream in a cold bowl with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Pour hot chocolate mixture into 4 serving cups. Top each with whipped cream, a drizzle of dulche de leche and shaved or chopped chocolate.

Serve and enjoy.
