Salted Caramel Mocha Latte - an easy copycat of the fabulous fall drink
Hi, my name is Jocelyn…and I am in love with the Salted Caramel Mocha Latte.

From my very first sip a few years ago, I have been totally and completely in love with this drink.  I look forward each fall to indulging in many of them.  Who else thinks they should carry this drink all year long?

There is only one problem with this love of mine…my wallet doesn’t like to part with $5 each time I stop.

A few weeks ago, I stopped at my favorite coffee shop (again), and had yet another Salted Caramel Mocha Latte.   Sadly that meant the balance on my card was now at $0.  My options were to refill the card again, or drink coffee from home.

It got me thinking how I could recreate this wonderful drink in my kitchen and save myself some mulah!

I decided to use this Salted Caramel Pumpkin Latte as my starting point.  Obviously I left out the pumpkin this time though ;-)  There were some hot chocolate packets in our cupboard.  Hot chocolate and coffee is another one of my favorite winter drinks, so I knew this was what I wanted to use for the enhanced chocolate flavor.  (I have made a few more of these since then, and chocolate syrup also works great.)

Now what sets this drink apart is the sea salt sprinkle that goes on top.    The store bought ones have something else to them…so I did some google research and found out that the coffee shops use a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt.  I now have a large box of the sugar and a new sea salt grinder in my baking cupboard.    They are getting good use because I am loving the chance to make one of these yummy drinks whenever I want.

Guess who will be drinking these all year long now?

Salted Caramel Mocha Latte

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 latte

Salted Caramel Mocha Latte

Caramel and sea salt add a punch of flavor to a home brewed coffee.

Ingredients

1 cup milk (I usually use skim)
2 Tablespoons caramel ice cream topping + extra
2 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix
pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup strong coffee
Cool Whip
1 teaspoon turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Mix together the turbinado sugar and sea salt. Set aside.
  2. Heat the milk, 2 Tbsp. caramel, hot chocolate mix, and sea salt until it comes to a boil. Pour into a blender and pulse until frothy. Pour into a cup. Slowly pour the hot coffee into one side of the frothed milk. Top with Cool Whip. Drizzle with extra caramel topping. Sprinkle with the sugar/sea salt mixture. Makes 1 large cup.

Notes

*I used the Swiss Miss Dark Hot Chocolate for an even more intense chocolate flavor. *You can also substitute chocolate syrup in place of the hot chocolate mix.

    I look forward to the Salted Caramel Mocha coming back more than I do the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I’m going to try this out–I hate spending $5 every time I want one too!

    Hi All :) although I’m not sure what this drink tastes like, I do have to note that as someone who works at Starbucks herself, you are missing one important ingredient…toffee nut! Toffee nut and mocha are the base flavors for the Starbucks style. This drink does look amazing in itself though :)
