Homemade Salted Caramel Mocha, My Way

Salted Caramel Mocha

A special treat for the first snowy day of the season. I've never had one of these at Starbucks, because it seemed like one of those good concepts that could easily be ruined in the hands of an outfit known for liberality with multiple artificially-flavored syrups. Plus, I'm picky so whenever I go there I end up being one of those jerks who orders like this. Lesson: make your own. It's kind of a production in our house, though, given that we only have a Bialetti stovetop espresso maker and no milk steamer, just an aerolatte which was regifted to us by my friend Emily, whose family keeps buying them for her. The aerolatte, while nifty and effective, doesn't heat the milk, which means another dirty pot. ANYWAY.

So, I started with a batch of Salted Caramel Sauce (which is REALLY buttery) from David Lebovitz's Perfect Scoop. It was still warm, which is why the topping isn't so pretty. I now have a pint of salted caramel sauce. Want some?

Okay. So then. I made some espresso (probably about 3 ounces) and stirred in a heaping tablespoon of hot cocoa mix and (gasp) a tablespoon of caramel. Next time I would probably cut the caramel by half or so, but I am not complaining too loudly because that stuff is delicious. Topped with steamed unsweetened soy milk or regular milk (or heated then aerolatte'd, in my case), with a bit more caramel drizzled on top.

If you're into recipes, I used this one as a guide. This is probably less work if you have a real espresso machine. But if you can only have one of these on rare occasions (like me, wah) it's probably a good thing that it takes some effort.

I quite enjoyed watching the first snow of the season come down with this in hand. It's kind of like the non-boozing chocolate lover's equivalent of hot buttered rum, if you use a buttery sauce like David's.

Yum!! This looks like the most delicious thing ever.

Try the aeroccino (sp?), also by Nespresso. It foams AND heats the milk! A little more pricey but totally worth it for coffee treats at home :)
