Make this coffeehouse-style Brûlée Caramel Coffee at home in just minutes! Coffee, milk, caramel sauce and a touch of brown sugar come together to make a sweet caramel coffee treat!
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. 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.
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 caramel-coffee-delicious drink was in order. I was going for something reminiscent of a Starbucks caramel macchiato or caramel latte. No worries if you don’t have homemade caramel – you can use any sort of store-bought caramel sauce for this, too!
