The holiday season equals a lot of yummy sweets and holiday drinks — we all know about the infamous red cup drinks! But this season I was sent something new that I haven’t tried at home — Torani Flavored Syrups. Torani is the leading brand for flavored syrups and offers over 100 flavors, some of my favorites include Peppermint, Vanilla and of course Chocolate!
I received Sugar Free Salted Caramel and Gingerbread. Honestly, I’m not a fan of Gingerbread but this seems to be a very sweet gingerbread that would be great in baking or adding to your coffee. The Sugar Free Salted Caramel does not seem to be sugar-free, it is still very sweet. Salted Caramel seems to be the new fad flavor this year, so I thought I would try it out in a simple drink we all love, but add a twist — Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate!
It’s pretty simple. All I did was take some instant Hot Chocolate mix (creamy chocolate to be exact), take warm/hot milk and mix together. Then I added 1 tsp. of the Torani Sugar Free Salted Caramel Syrup. I think added a some marshmallows and drizzled with chocolate — because really, what is hot chocolate with out marshmallows?
The final product? Yummy! I would have to say I am impressed that the Sugar Free syrup does not have that sweetener after taste or no flavor — it really is very sweet, I don’t know how much different the regular Salted Caramel could be! I’m looking forward to trying these out in some more baking this holiday season! Do you have any great Salted Caramel recipes to share?
