Chai Hot Chocolate

Winter is coming which calls for all things warm, which is why we’re bringing you this Dark Chocolate Chai. 

 

Growing up, my mom would make hot chocolate by melting 100% pure Dominican chocolate with milk. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some pure chocolate from my friend Ryan’s farm and whisked it in with the milk, chai, and maple syrup. SO comforting and delicious!

The chai adds rich notes of cinnamon and cardamom. You can make your own chai, but wasn’t in the mood to do all that so just steeped a chai tea bag as a shortcut.

Steep 1 bag of chai tea in 1 cup of water for 4-5 minutes. In a small pot, add the milk and chai tea and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the chocolate, sweetener and continue simmering for 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently, until all chocolate is melted. For a smoother consistency, strain into a mug. I skip straining because I enjoy the chocolate bits in there. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, and enjoy!

    Omg yum. I bet DIY pecan milk would be sooo good in this! I’m going to try using tulsi holy basil tea instead of the black tea bec of the caffeine
