Caramel Hot Chocolate

Divine, warming Caramel Hot Chocolate ~ this is to die for delicious !

Happy Halloween everybody ! Seeing as Halloween is not that big in South-Africa, I thought I would at least have a recipe ready for you all out celebrating, to enjoy after trick-or-treating.

This Caramel Hot Chocolate will definitely warm you up and is perfect for the kids. Adults - you might consider adding a shot {or two!} of English Toffee Liqueur to this hot beverage as well ;-)

To me, Hot Chocolate is definitely not a seasonal drink, I enjoy a mug every now and then, throughout the year and almost always at bedtime. So comforting and I do believe it makes me sleep better {now don't go smash that idea with any myths and facts!}

I absolutely love it when I add the whipped cream and the bubbles form around the sides, pushing their way up and a little over the edges of the cream.

As I am typing up this post, I feel the definite craving for a mug of this Caramel Hot Chocolate as we are experiencing some rainy days right now, and the evenings are much chillier than normal for this time of year in South-Africa - even though it is rain season, it's not the usual rain with warm weather. Strange things going on with the weather ...

I hope you will enjoy this delicious Hot Chocolate drink as much as we do !


6 Servings


1/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/3 cup Water
4 cups Milk
2 cups Fresh Cream
6 TB Caramel Sauce {Ice-cream sauce works well}
Whipped Cream, to top
Cocoa Powder, to sprinkle
Extra Caramel Sauce, to serve


1.) Place the Sugar, Cocoa and Water in a medium saucepan - bring to the boil while stirring continuously until the Sugar has dissolved.
2.) Add the Milk - bring back to boiling point - add the Cream and the Caramel Sauce - heat through {keep stirring}
3.) Pour into serving mugs - top with whipped cream, sprinkle with Cocoa and drizzle with extra Caramel Sauce.

  1. I never thought of stirring ice cream caramel into hot chocolate, but it sounds delicious. It is pretty chilly up here tonight, so might give this a try for any chilly trick-or-treaters!

  2. Yum! I can't wait to try this combination. Happy Halloween!

  3. I could definitely enjoy this after our busy night

  4. I do LOVE homemade hot chocolate! I might try this for our next youth group girls night! Hot chocolate goes well with Christmas movies and "spa night" right? Can I make it without the fresh cream?

    1. Nathana, you can use ordinary milk, but the hot chocolate won't be as rich or thick as when you use fresh cream {double cream/whipping cream}. - replying here, as your e-mail is not attached to your comment :-)

  5. Yum, hot chocolate's big in this house, can't wait to impress the kids with this recipe at some point! Popping by from Creative Mondays.

  6. I'm with you. I don't need any excuse to tuck into a hot chocolate. This twist looks delicious.

  8. Sometimes I add caramel ice cream topping to my coffee. I can't explain why I've never thought to add it to hot chocolate. We've had some cold temps the past few nights. A warm mug would hit the spot.

  9. This looks amazing and the perfect treat for a cold winter day! Thanks for sharing!
