Does it keep?
(or store-bought // use full-fat for creamier hot chocolate, or sub other dairy-free milk)
chopped cocoa butter
(or stevia to taste)
each ground cinnamon + nutmeg
(for natural sweetness and warmth)
(for honeycomb / caramel flavor (optional))
To a small saucepan, add coconut milk and cocoa butter and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for a few minutes, whisking occasionally.
Once melted and completely combined, remove from heat and add maple syrup, coconut butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt. Optional: Add maca for a caramely flavor and hormone-balancing benefits.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more maple syrup for sweetness, coconut butter for buttery coconut flavor, or cocoa butter for richer chocolate flavor (heat over stovetop as needed to melt). Add vanilla last and whisk to combine.
Divide between 2-3 serving glasses and top with desired garnishes, such as coconut whipped cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Best when fresh. Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 5 days or in the freezer up to 1 month.
