- 0.25 teaspoon Sea Salt

Tis’ the season for a cozy mug of hot chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon and a shot of espresso!
However, if it’s the middle of summer and you are craving that decadent chocolate drink, I will not judge you!
I love all kinds of hot cocoa. Add some marshmallows on top, make it spicy, extra frosty milk, any thing goes.
The only hot chocolate no no is using a pre-made packets!
Making a hot cocoa at home is so easy and you can customize it.
This drink is dirty because it has a bit of cinnamon and a shot of espresso.
If you are thinking that this drink is just like a mocha you are not incorrect!
I am using two different chocolate elements with the dark chocolate and cocoa powder. This keeps the drink chocolate forward rather than being a coffee beverage.
Using a high quality dark chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder is key.
Just a bit of salt will enhance the flavor and sweetness. Don’t skip this step!
I am keeping it dairy free by using a non-dairy milk beverage. Homemade almond milk and oat milk are my favorite!
