Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate - Now you know how to make it at home, saving you time, money and no doubt calories too.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Starbucks have nailed it with their Holiday-inspired drinks including crazy combinations that scream the holidays. They are all comfort in a 12oz cup. Whether you partake or not, few can resist these delicious drinks. However, now you can make your own Homemade Starbucks Drinks rather than making a trip to your local store. Let’s not forget the added bonus of knowing what goes into them, and it isn’t squirts of “caramel syrup.”

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is my go-to Starbucks drink. My waistline probably wishes it wasn’t but my eyes and stomach are all about it. With even more Salted Caramel on top, it just pushes this drink over the edge to heaven! Find the recipe here.

I always have a jar of Salted Caramel Sauce in the back of my fridge. Why? Because it transforms plain ice cream into an ice cream sundae, or regular Hot Chocolate into a decadent Hot Chocolate. I urge you to make some of my Salted Caramel Sauce so when friends drop by and you think you don’t have anything for dessert you can whip out your “secret weapon.”

Just amazing and delicious! I made the Biscuits spread cheesecake and the salted caramel sauce to go with, and with the leftover sauce the hot chocolate. Had all 3 this afternoon and they all go so well together! Very yummy, thanks Gemma

Can I use salt and caramel sauce separately in place of salted caramel sauce.
What would be the measurements then?

I usually love Gemma’a recipe, but I found this one to be incredibly bitter and I didn’t even use 72%, only 62%.
