Rich fall drink, without a lot of work: Homemade Salted Caramel Mocha.
For this coffee drink, you can use a number of brewing methods: classic drip, espresso, manual method or Keurig machine. I make this salted caramel mocha regularly and I love it. Enjoy!
SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA MADE WITH REGULAR COFFEE
Combine 1 tsp cocoa with 2 tablespoons hot water and stir to get a smooth paste. Prepare coffee using your favorite technique and heat the milk. Add coffee, 2 rich tablespoons caramel sauce and a pinch of sea salt. Next, slowly add the milk, while stirring. Taste and add more caramel and sea salt to adjust to your taste. I don’t need sugar, but you can definitely add some if you like your coffee really sweet. Top with whipped cream, a tiny pinch of sea salt and drizzle with caramel sauce.
SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA MADE WITH ESPRESSO COFFEE
2 oz espresso (1 double shot/ 1 espresso pod)
1 tsp cocoa powder or 2 tbsp chocolate chips
2 tbsp salted caramel sauce
a pinch of sea salt
6 oz steamed milk
whipped cream (optional)
Combine cocoa with 2 tablespoons hot water and stir to get a smooth paste. Brew espresso into the cup. Add 2 rich tablespoons caramel sauce and a pinch of sea salt. Next, pour milk into a steaming pitcher and heat the milk using a steam wand. Add steamed milk to your espresso while stirring. Add caramel/ sea salt to adjust to your taste. Top with whipped cream, a tiny pinch of sea salt and drizzle with caramel sauce.
