Sunday indulgence? Nigella’s salted caramel hot chocolate is the BEST

On a cold Sunday evening, there is nothing better than cuddling up to watch your favourite shows and indulging in a steamy hot chocolate.

Well, Nigella Lawson has TOTALLY upped the hot cocoa game as she adds a little caramel twist to the sweet drink.

Here's the recipe that will make you never want to go back to plain hot chocolate again:


  • salted caramel sauce
  • 250ml full fat milk
  • 50g finely chopped dark chocolate


To make a mugful, put 250ml full fat milk into a small saucepan with 50g finely chopped dark chocolate, and 3 x 15ml tablespoons of salted caramel sauce.

Cook, stirring over medium heat, until chocolate is melted and you have a rich hot liquid to pour into a waiting mug.

If you want you could dollop whipped cream over the top, followed by some drizzled salted caramel sauce.
