Yes you read that correctly. What a combination right?
From one hot coco lover to another I love the basic hot chocolate but every now and then you want to spice it up right?
One of my favorite flavors of ice cream is butter pecan. Its rich creamy and perfect for the winter days we all been having for the past few weeks here in Pittsburgh can you believe it’s been an average feel of -10? Brutal.
Since we all are having our share of mother nature I thought I share this warming hot chocolate.
If your not a fan of butter pecan ice cream, that’s perfectly okay substitute with your favorite flavor!
Try pistachio, with white hot chocolate mix. Or chocolate chip cookie dough. To be honest, the options are unlimted.
Now onto the recipe:
1 large scoop of butter pecan ice cream
1/2 cup of water or enough to fill your mug
2 1/2 of your favorite brand of hot chocolate mix
1 tiny pinch of salt.
1 tablespoon of finely chopped pecans.
Start by adding your ice cream.
Add enough water to fill but not over flow remember the ice cream will melt and make more liquid.
Place into a microwave or you can simmer the mixture in a pot until its steaming hot!
*Microwave time 3mins
Pour your hot chocolate mix in and stir. For this brand and for the amount of water I added in put 1 and a half packs.
Add the tiniest pinch of sea salt.
*The salt is optional I love the taste of sea salt and chocolate together. It will also bring out the butteriness of the ice cream.
Chop one tablespoon worth of pecans. Toasting is not necessary.
*Make sure the pecans are chopped really finely.
Add your marshmallows, and a extra scoop of ice cream along with a sprinkle of your chopped pecans.
