So, as it turns out, butterscotch hot cocoa is pretty goddamn amazing, especially as the nights here are just starting to turn towards fall. Put this on the stove, get it boiling and then leave it on low throughout the evening and just enjoy the smell (but be sure to watch it when it boils, it can spill over real quick).
- 3 c milk
- 1 c heavy whipping cream
- .75 c butterscotch chips
- .25 c butterscotch sauce
- 3 T cocoa powder (honestly I just used what was left of my Godiva milk hot chocolate mix)
- 1 T vanilla extract
- 1 t butter flavor (optional)
If you so choose, warm your milk and cream. If not, just put everything in a pot, and stir frequently as you bring it to a light boil medium high heat, so that everything melts together. Be sure you watch it closely; I stepped away for a few moments, and it boiled over. (Still tasted great, just something to be aware of.) As soon as you’ve got it to that light boil, remove from heat, and pour out your cups. If you’re like me and you’re splitting it with your boyfriend, keep it on low heat to keep it warm throughout the evening and also make the place smell real nice.
