Easy Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa

Is there anything better on a cold and wintery day than holding a warm beverage in your hands? The warmth instantly travels beyond your hands to deep within your core, especially after that very first sip.

I’m a life-long Michigan resident, so cold winters are something I’m very familiar with. Think about it, our state is shaped like a winter mitten, cold and winter just come with the territory.

Stepping out of a blustery winter day and into the cozy feeling of home is just the best feeling. But why stop there? I’m here today to add a delicious element to that cozy feeling. 

Today I’m tempting you with a warm “cup of cozy” in the form of Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa. I don’t care what age you are, there’s a certain comfort that comes from a mug of hot cocoa, wouldn’t you agree?

Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa is crazy easy to prepare, let me tell you about it. First, it begins with an envelope of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Flavor Hot Cocoa Mix
