Craving a delicious salted caramel mocha but don't want to head to a café? You can easily make this indulgent drink right in your kitchen! Let's dive into how you can create this coffeehouse favorite with a simple, straightforward recipe.

Ingredients You’ll Need

To start, let's gather the ingredients you'll need for this delightful treat. The recipe is quite simple and uses readily available items.

  • Hot Coffee: 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons, brewed strong
  • Chocolate Sauce: 1 tablespoon, plus more for garnish
  • Homemade or Store-Bought Caramel Sauce: 3 tablespoons, divided
  • Milk: To taste (can use any variety, including dairy or non-dairy options)
  • Whipped Cream: For garnish
  • Cocoa Powder: For that extra touch of chocolate in your drink

How to Prepare and Serve the Beverage

The preparation process is quick and easy, perfect for a cozy morning or an afternoon pick-me-up, especially if you're a fan of salted caramel.

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a large coffee mug, mix 2 tablespoons of hot coffee with 1 tablespoon of chocolate sauce and 2 tablespoons of salted caramel sauce. Add milk according to your preference.
  2. Heat the Mixture: Microwave the mixture for 35 to 40 seconds. This heats the ingredients and helps them blend smoothly.
  3. Mix and Garnish: After heating, stir the mixture until well blended. Pour in the remaining hot coffee and mix. Top your salted caramel mocha with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle.

Can I Customize My Caramel Mocha Drink?

One of the joys of making salted caramel mocha at home is the ability to customize it to your liking.

  • Milk Variations: Feel free to use any type of milk you prefer. Almond milk, oat milk, or even coconut milk can add a unique twist to your salted caramel mocha.
  • Sweetness Adjustment: If you like your coffee less sweet, reduce the amount of salted caramel sauce or chocolate sauce. Conversely, for a sweeter drink, feel free to add more caramel sauce.
  • Extra Toppings: For an extra indulgent experience, add more whipped cream or a sprinkle of cocoa powder or chocolate shavings to your salted caramel mocha.

What If I Want an Iced Version?

If you're in the mood for something cold, transforming this recipe into an iced salted caramel mocha is easy.

  1. Cool It Down: Prepare the coffee mixture as instructed, but let it cool down to room temperature.
  2. Add Ice: Fill a glass with ice and pour the cooled coffee mixture over it.
  3. Garnish as Desired: Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle, just like the hot version of salted caramel mocha.
