Hawaiian Hot Chocolate

Recipe by  

"I created this drink from the memories of a trip to Hawaii, where I met my (now) husband. Surprisingly, it does get chilly in Hawaii, especially at night and in cold, rainy regions. This is a different take on the usual cold and frozen Hawaiian libations."

Directions

  1. Whisk half-and-half, milk, sugar, and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium-high heat until cocoa and sugar dissolve. Remove from heat when mixture begins to steam, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk vanilla extract, coconut extract, and salt into cocoa mixture. Pour into glasses and top each with whipped cream and toasted coconut.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Can substitute coconut emulsion for coconut extract. Coconut emulsion pairs well with cocoa better than coconut extracts that I have tried. Likely due to less alcohol in the emulsion. The emulsion I use has a strong flavor, and recipes may need to be adjusted based on flavor and your preference.
  • Add 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut rum to each mug before serving to make an adult version of this hot chocolate.

This is tasty, but wickedly rich and sweet, as well. For my taste, I will probably replace some of the half-and-half a bit with the milk, as well as reducing the sugar a little. There is a bit of an aftertaste that I can't quite put my finger on. The coconut extract is a quite nice addition to this drink and sets it apart from other hot chocolates.
