Salted Caramel Mocha

If I'm being completely honest, this time of year my true love is the pumpkin spice latte....but, this salted caramel mocha is a pretty close second.  The best part about it - you can make it yourself at home.  No need to spend $5 a pop, when that could buy you the ingredients to make as many as you would like.  I use the same method as I do for my other homemade lattes with a stove-top espresso maker.  Such a special treat, without having to change out of your pajamas.

Salted Caramel Mocha 
  • espresso
  • milk
  • caramel syrup
  • hot chocolate mix (we like the dark mix in this little hive)
  • 1 T turbinado sugar
  • 1 T sea salt
  • whip cream, if desired
  • Mix sugar and sea salt and set aside. (I store in a mason jar.)
  • Make espresso (or you can use really strong coffee, but I promise it's better with espresso).
  • While espresso is brewing pour milk into mason jar.  Cover and shake until milk has doubled in size.  Remove lid and heat in microwave for one minute.
  • In bottom of coffee mug add caramel sauce and hot chocolate mix.  We prefer 2 T of caramel and 1 T of hot chocolate mix, but use according to your personal taste.
  • Pour hot espresso into mug.  Stir to combine and dissolve the caramel sauce and hot chocolate mix.  
  • Add heated milk, top with froth.
  • Garnish with whip cream and sugar and salt mixture.
  • Enjoy!
Happy Cooking!
