Dulce de Leche Hot Chocolate
Part of me wishes I'd thought a little more about the fact that I'd be doing a Whole30 when we put together our Winter Bucket List. The kids added plenty of sugary and off-limits treats to make and this dulce de leche hot chocolate looked a heck of a lot better than my carrots and guacamole snack. But if you are looking for an "easy-yet-fancy" hot chocolate recipe, this one appeared to hit the mark.
To whip it up, you'll need (per serving):
- 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup dulce de leche (reserve a tablespoon to drizzle over top)
- whipped cream
Combine cocoa powder and sugar in a bowl. Place milk in a saucepan and start on low heat. Add cocoa powder/sugar mix and stir until dissolved. Then add dulce de leche. Stir on and off for a few minutes until the mixture is well combined and it's your desired temperature. Top with whipped cream and reserved dulce de leche.
