Is there a more classic combo than chocolate and caramel? This iconic pair make delectable recipes, but they’re usually a lot of calories, too. So to save some calories, I like to use caramel extract instead of actual caramel. You’ll get that yummy, chocolate-caramel flavor with less sugar and calories. This hot chocolate is simple, but oh, so delicious! Feel free to change the chocolate to dark, if you prefer.
