1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract* (optional)
2 tablespoons white hot chocolate cocoa powder
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons caramel sauce
Drizzle caramel sauce around the inside of a heat resistant mug, particularly around the inside of the rim. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a vigorous simmer, over medium heat. Then, reduce the heat and continue to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Let the mixture cool to slightly above room temperature and gently pour into the heat-resistant glass.`
