For Salted Caramel Sauce – Heat 1/2 lb. butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 tsp. sea salt. Allow to cool.

For Hot Chocolate – Heat 2 quarts whole milk in another saucepan over medium heat; whisk in 12 oz. chopped bittersweet chocolate and stir until smooth.

Squeeze 2 tbsp. salted caramel sauce into a mug. Fill with prepared hot chocolate. Top with whipped cream, a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Serves 8-10.
