Caramel Swirl Hot Chocolate

5 (3 ounce) bars milk chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup plus 1 cup chilled whipping cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
3 tablespoons prepared caramel sauce

Bring 5 cups water and chocolate to simmer in medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve chocolate. Mix in 1/4 cup cream. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to simmer, stirring frequently, before continuing.)

Whip 1 cup cream and powdered sugar in medium bowl until peaks form. Drizzle caramel over and swirl together, forming streaks (do not over-mix).

Divide hot chocolate among 6 mugs. Top with generous amount of caramel whipped cream and serve.
