I just have to give a small shout out to Starbucks new Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. The boy, knowing of my deep love of sea salt and its even greater power with caramel, told me about it. You all already know what a hot chocolate buff I am, so this seemed like something from heaven.
I finally got to get my own while traveling yesterday and OH MA GAH. Here is how Starbucks describes it and they pretty much nail it on the head:
This delicious sweet and salty combination brings together our rich, indulgent Signature Hot Chocolate and the flavors of buttery caramel and smoked sea salt. It is topped with whipped cream, a swirl of caramel and a sprinkle of our sea salt topping - a combination of artisan sea salt and Turbinado sugar from Hawaii.
