Ingredients you need

  • Strong Coffee: Use your favorite beans and brewing method to make a bold brew with caramel sweetness!
  • Homemade Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer: I love everything homemade, including my favorite Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer! My recipe makes crafting this creamy mix a breeze, but if you want an even richer and creamier take on this cafe classic, try it with my homemade caramel milk.
  • Whipped Cream: Soft, airy whipped cream is the perfect way to finish off this decadent treat. Top it with a homemade or store-bought whip, and if you need a little less dairy, feel free to trade it for a non-dairy whipped cream or omit this finishing touch.
