It's been feeling like summer weather here lately, so when I do drink coffee these days I prefer it to be iced. But there's been a few rainy days here and there that made me crave a warm cup of coffee--and I turned to this homemade salted caramel mocha. I have to say that I prefer the homemade version to Starbuck's; I thought the Starbuck's one had a funny aftertaste that I didn't quite care for. This one is easy to make and a perfect addition to any rainy afternoon.
Salted Caramel Mocha
2 Tbsp caramel sauce (I used this)
1 Tbsp chocolate syrup
small pinch fleur de sel
2/3 cup strong brewed hot coffee
1/3 cup milk, warmed
whipped cream, for serving
additional caramel sauce, for serving
Add the caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, and salt to a mug. Pour the hot coffee into the mug and stir well until the caramel and chocolate are mixed in. Stir in the milk. Adjust flavorings to taste. Top with whipped cream and additional drizzle of caramel sauce, if desired.
