Hot chocolate taken to a whole new level! Hot chocolate is combined with dulce de leche and a hint of salt to make a decadent treat that will warm you up.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate | Taste and Tell

I normally enjoy the writing part of blogging.  I’m not a writer by any means, and there are some bloggers out there who are amazing at telling stories, but I really do normally like the writing part.  Sharing parts of my life, my history – and of course, talking about food.  I often need this outlet to talk about food, because I’m quite sure that my husband starts to tune me out as soon as I start talking about a recipe I tried, or an idea for something that I want to make.  And that’s ok – because that’s what this is for!  But every once in awhile, the writing part is the hardest part about blogging.  Sure, it takes some time to make the recipes, and it takes time and some creativity to photograph them.  But sometimes I run into a day where I have absolutely nothing on my mind that feels right to write about.  Usually, though, it’s gone after a day.  I get up the next day, and what to write for the next day’s post comes to me.  But I am suffering from a week-long bout of writer’s block right now.  I seriously opened up this post, uploaded photos and then wasted some time on Pinterest.  Then typed up the recipe, then wasted some time on Facebook.  I have been avoiding actually writing anything, because really – nothing is coming to me.  And I’m hoping that this block will leave me soon!!

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate | Taste and Tell

One thing that needs very little words, though, is this hot chocolate.  Really – caramel, chocolate, and a bit of salt – can you go wrong with that combination?  I absolutely love hot chocolate, and this has been one of the best that I’ve had.  Honestly.  And it comes together so quickly – who says you need a mix??

    I was craving the Salted Caramel Mocha today too when I remembered seeing your post on Foodgawker. I didn’t have any dulce de leche so I improved with a caramel topping and posted it in my blog with a link back to your page! Thank you 🙂

    I made this and wrote about it here. I dont know what happened, but this turned out super salty! I’m fairly certain that I measured the salt correctly. Maybe we’ve just omitted so much salt from our diet that our palates are weird!
