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).

With this drink, 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, 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 one serving, although you can double or quadruple the recipe for 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 either my caramel syrup for coffee or microwave caramel sauce.

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 a cup of coffee using your favorite method. While the coffee is brewing, heat some milk and the caramel sauce OR syrup in a small saucepan on the stove, until steaming.

Combine the coffee and the warmed milk in mugs and top with whipped cream and caramel sauce, if you want!

Psst – if you have leftover caramel sauce, make an apple mug cake!
