As we get closer to the end of October, I get super excited!

Why may you ask? It’s close to one of my favorite holidays, Christmas! With Christmas comes the winter weather, like snow. Although I’m not a HUGE fan of snow, it can have its benefits. One of the advantages I like about winter is the beautiful snow falling on the ground making it look like a winter wonderland. And, it gives you a cozy feeling; which leads you to the kitchen to make a cup of hot chocolate. The boys love when we come up with a new homemade hot chocolate recipe.

On our recent trip to San Francisco, we stopped at the Ghirardelli store and picked up several bars of chocolate. I mean, they were having a buy four, get two for free sale! {who can pass up a deal like this, especially on Ghirardelli chocolate!!}

Back home I knew I needed to make something epic with these chocolate bars. Using the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel bar, I knew this specific chocolate would make a bangin’ cup of homemade hot chocolate.

With salted caramel sauce, a little milk, vanilla, dark fudge, whip cream and a little imagination, I put together this easy homemade hot chocolate recipe.

The boys love having their hot chocolate with a bowl of popcorn as they watch movies. This past weekend, Zayd’n started his annual tradition of watching all of his favorite Christmas movies. With a cup of dark chocolate sea salt caramel hot chocolate and a bowl of popcorn, he settled in to watch Elf!
