salted caramel hot chocolateThis year’s weather has been crazy. So crazy that I have to turn on the television to see the daily forecast to know whether or not it is short weather or heavy coat.  It kinda puts a monkey wrench into my meal planning, too.  Do we want nice hot soup or a refreshing salad?  Fortunately, since I have TruMoo in the fridge, I can pour a nice cold glass of chocolate milk for my son or heat it up for a decadent cup of Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate.

TruMoo

I like TruMoo because it is made with fresh, local milk and has NO artificial growth hormones*, NO high fructose corn syrup, and is delicious.  And as I just mentioned, it’s versatile, too.  It’s great straight from the fridge (nice and cold) or heated up.

I like to use TruMoo to make this decadent Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate For Two to enjoy with my son.  It is so simple to make and is ready in a matter of minutes.
