Rich fall drink, without a lot of work: Homemade Salted Caramel Mocha.
We are entering what I consider peak salted caramel mocha season. Caramel makes everything better and it’s certainly the case with this salted caramel mocha. I love making them! They taste AMAZING, and like all other recipes on the blog, they are super easy to make.
You start by making the coffee using any available brewing method – the French press, drip or your Keurig machine, and adding some caramel sauce. Meanwhile, you heat the milk and stir in some cocoa powder. Then, you just need to assemble the drink. Here’s how to do it:
SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA (MADE WITH REGULAR COFFEE)
1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee or 1 k-cup brewed at 4 oz setting
1 tsp cocoa powder or 2 tbsp chocolate chips
2 tbsp caramel sauce
a pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup milk
Heat the milk until steaming and stir in cocoa powder/chocolate chips until well blended. Prepare the coffee and add 2 rich tablespoons caramel sauce, and a pinch of sea salt. Slowly add milk mixture to the coffee, while stirring. Taste and add more caramel and sea salt to adjust to your taste. I don’t need sugar, but you can add some if you like your coffee really sweet. Top with whipped cream, a tiny pinch of sea salt and drizzle with caramel sauce.
