Salted Honey Hot Chocolate

This Salted Honey Hot Chocolate is a luxurious and intriguing comfort drink. The hot chocolate is made from real chocolate and sweetened with honey for a sublime chocolate taste. Topped with whipped cream flavoured with sea salt and honey for an extra flavour dimension. It’s very mellow and verging on addictive.

Ingredients

For the Honey Hot Chocolate

  • 750 ml/ 3 cups Whole Milk
  • 75 g/ ⅔ cup Dark Chocolate - roughly chopped (I used 65% cocoa)
  • 2 ½ tablespoon Honey
  • Pinch sea salt (optional)

For the Salted Honey Whipped Cream

  • 150 ml/ ½ cup Double (heavy) cream
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Honey

Garnish

  • Chocolate flakes (optional)

Instructions

Make the Hot Chocolate

  • Put the milk, honey & salt (if using) into a saucepan and heat gently until scalding, but not boiling
  • Put the chocolate into a heatproof blender, pour on the milk and blitz until the chocolate is combined and the milk frothy. (Alternatively, drop the chocolate directly into the pan of hot milk and stir until melted - it will not be as smooth, creamy and frothy)

Make the Salted Honey Whipped Cream

  • Grind the salt using a pestle & mortar (it will blend into the cream better).
  • Put the cream into a bowl, add the honey and ¼ teaspoon salt. Whisk briefly to combine the ingredients. Taste - add a little more salt if desired. Continue to whip the cream until it reaches the soft peak stage 

To Serve

  • Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and top with a scoop of the salted honey cream. Sprinkle a few chocolate flakes over the cream (if desired) and serve immediately
