Salted Caramel Mocha ready in minutes without having to leave home! Quick and simple, no more expensive coffee house trips for your salted caramel mocha cravings!
It never fails. Whenever I’m in a city that has a coffee house, drive-thru or otherwise, I have to visit. With the weather getting cooler while I visited with my friend this past weekend in the mountains, we just had to stop by so I could buy a salted caramel mocha each afternoon as a little pick me up. Then, I decided I better start making these little drinks at home since they were rather pricey. That expense could get out of hand really quickly! Thankfully, the couldn’t be much easier to make! We love mocha at my house, it is one of those coffee drinks that I love to keep all of the ingredients ready for use at a moment’s notice.
I made my salted caramel mocha recipe for one large cup or a single serving recipe. You can easily multiply the recipe for the number of servings that you need for guests or because you know that you can’t have just one! Ha!
My recipe also calls for homemade salted caramel, since I like to keep caramel sauce on hand in my refrigerator throughout the fall, it makes it really easy for me to use it quickly in this recipe. However, you can easily use the already made caramel sauce that you can buy at the grocery store, if you like. Either would work just fine. Likewise, it calls for homemade whipped cream, but use whatever whipped cream or topping you prefer.
Here’s my Salted Caramel Mocha Recipe. I know you are going to just love it!
