Salted caramel mocha

The fall season fills many coffee lovers’ minds with thoughts of pumpkin spice yumminess. While I am in no means denying the appeal of a perfect pumpkin spice latte, caramel is my autumnal confection of choice. To celebrate the luscious, deep, rich, sugary goodness of caramel, I have concocted this easy to prepare salted caramel mocha. Enjoy!


Ingredients

1 cup of strong coffee. Colombian Campesina is an excellent choice as it will stand up nicely to the density and rich chocolate flavor of this drink

2 1/2 tablespoons salted caramel sauce (you can use your favorite caramel sauce, or follow this simple recipe). Add one-two pinches of salt to the sauce

4 ounces milk

1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon heavy cream

Whipped cream for garnish (*optional)


Directions

1) Combine caramel sauce, cocoa, heavy cream, sugar, and milk into a small saucepan and heat until the ingredients are dissolved.
