One look around my kitchen, and you would immediately realize that I’m coffee obsessed. I have a coffee maker, two French presses, a cold brewer, and a stovetop espresso maker. Sometimes I’ll do tea with a cardamom tea latte, but it’s coffee most of the time.

While I normally take my coffee black or with just a splash of milk, every once in awhile I like to make something a little fancier.

And from a look around this blog, you’d know that I’m also caramel obsessed (hello, caramel apple cider mule). Because I still had a small jar of bourbon caramel sauce left over from my Apple & Pecan Tart, I knew some sort of fancy coffeehouse-style-delicious drink was in order.

I was going for something reminiscent of a Starbucks caramel macchiato or caramel latte (similar to the caramel iced coffee I like to make with homemade caramel syrup for coffee, but hot).

No worries if you don’t have homemade caramel – you can use any sort of store-bought caramel sauce for this, too!

About this Caramel Coffee:

Just like my salted caramel cream cold brew, this drink comes together in just minutes. It makes two servings, although you can halve or double the recipe for less or more servings, as needed (or make a big batch, if you’re hosting a brunch buffet).

The recipe is simply a combination of brewed coffee and warmed milk infused with caramel and brown sugar.

Top with whipped cream and extra caramel for that coffeehouse look!

The ingredients for this drink are simple and easy to find:

Sweet latte drink topped with white cream and dessert sauce.

How do you make a Caramel Coffee?:

First, brew two cups of coffee using your favorite method. While the coffee is brewing, heat some milk, caramel sauce and a touch of brown sugar (for that torched sugar efffect) in a small saucepan on the stove, until steaming.

Combine the coffee and the warmed milk in mugs and top with whipped cream and more sauce. You’ll probably have leftover caramel sauce, and that’s OK – make an apple mug cake!

Coffee doesn’t have to be just your morning cup. It’s the perfect flavor to craft cocktails and delicious desserts with, too!
