Today is English Toffee Day. I'm a toffee-holic. I judge Toffee at the San Francisco and International Chocolate Salons. English Toffee is the very best of toffee as far as I'm concerned. It's rich and buttery with a crisp texture and covered with a thick coating of dark chocolate and a sprinkling of nuts.

Toffee is great by itself, but sometimes it's great to pair with Hot Chocolate! And, today is the perfect day for it! It's cold outside, so here are two ways to keep warm inside: Two recipes for English Toffee Hot Chocolate.

Although you can make your own Toffee, you can just use your favorite store-bought English toffee in these recipes! Just be sure to chop it up!

1. English Toffee Hot Chocolate

4 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
8 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacao), chopped
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup English toffee, crushed
Whipped cream
Unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine milk, water, and sugar in saucepan and stir over medium heat until just boiling.
Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate and vanilla.

Pour hot chocolate into 2 big mugs.
Top with whipped cream and crushed English toffee. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
