Brûlée Caramel Coffee
Make this Caramel Brûlée Coffee coffeehouse-style drink at home in minutes! Coffee, milk, caramel sauce and brown sugar come together for this sweet 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. 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.
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:
- caramel sauce (like my homemade microwave caramel sauce, or store-bought)
- brown sugar
- whipped cream
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!
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup Microwave Caramel Sauce, plus additional for drizzling
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 2 cups (16 ounces) hot coffee
- Whipped cream
