Homemade Hot Chocolate with Orange Zest!

🍫 Since the day I tried this particular HOT CHOCOLATE @fallnleavesto, I fell in love β™₯
.
I have been craving it since but never had all the necessary ingredients to recreate it at home. Sometimes, there would be no milk, and sometimes no whipping cream.
.
During the holidays I was blessed to be able to spend some time in Montreal with my sister and that’s where I noticed she had all the ingredients available to make that perfect cup of HOT CHOCO with ORANGE zest and everything!
.
I just had to make this and man it turned out so amazing, I was actually proud of myself 😊
.
Here is what I did:

🍫 I found big Chunky pieces of Salted Caramel chocolates in her pantry. I’m sure she got those from the Bulk Barn.
🍫 I took a sauce pan, heated a cup of milk on low. I’m sure you can use Oat Milk or Soy if you are lactose-intolerant.
🍫 I added around three big chunks of the salted caramel chocolates to the saucepan. Make sure you are using low heat as chocolate burns very quickly.
🍫 I then took an orange and added some zest to the milk and Choco mixture. The amount of zest depends on how Orange-gy do you want your Hot Choco to taste. I added a small teaspoon-ish.
🍫 Once all mixed, melted and nicely, I pour out the mixture into a nice glass mug.
🍫 I added whipping cream on top.
🍫 I sprinkled some more orange zest on top of the cold whipping cream
🍫 I then added a few shavings of chocolate on top of that and VOILA!
I swear it was better than any pre-mixed Hot Chocolate you would EVER have so try it at home. These chilly winter days seriously call for a good mug-a HOT CHOCO!
