Starbucks Style Iced Caramel Macchiato Recipe

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:

  1. In a pan on medium flame add brown sugar and water, let it cook. Do not stir.
  2. Once it starts to boil and reaches a dark brown colour, remove it from the heat and quickly add cream and butter.
  3. 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!
