It took me a while to figure out what kind of coffee I like at Starbucks and this was during college, however, the moment I tasted my first iced caramel macchiato I knew that this was exactly the kind of coffee I like, and little did I know this would be my go-to order every time I would visit a Starbucks.
In the last few months, since I have not been able to step out to get my favorite coffee, I recreated this recipe at home. I am happy to see that this version that I tried at home is very similar to the iced caramel macchiato served any Starbucks.
My brother who is a coffee fanatic and knows about coffee we more than me also agrees and I think that works as the best testimonial for me.
So, for all your coffee people, try this recipe at home and hope you enjoy it!
Prep Time: 15 mins Total Time: 15 mins
Makes 1/4th cup caramel and serves 1
For homemade caramel:
- ¼ cup brown sugar (I used @greensenseorganic brown sugar)
- 2 tbsp water
- ½ tbsp butter
- ½ tbsp cream
- Salt to taste
Caramel Recipe Method:
- In a pan on medium flame add brown sugar and water, let it cook. Do not stir.
- Once it starts to boil and reaches a dark brown colour, remove it from the heat and quickly add cream and butter.
- Mix and whisk it well until combined then add some salt to taste. Empty it in a glass bowl until it forms its texture and is ready to use.
Iced Caramel Macchiato Method:
You can also use Nutella or chocolate sauce instead of caramel if you don’t have the ingredients available!
