{ A Recipe }

Caramel Macchiato

I just love Caramel Macchiatos!  Here is my “base” recipe…change it up to taste – you can’t go wrong!

4 Tablespoons Caramel Sauce (Recipe Follows)
1/2 Cup Freshly Brewed Coffee
1 Cup Very Warm Whole Milk

Stir together the Caramel and Coffee in a Large Mug.  Pour the Hot Milk over Caramel Mixture.

Caramel Sauce:
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 tablespoon water

In a 3-quart, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the cream, butter, sugar, and water. Stir over medium heat until the mixture is smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers 240 degrees F, about 5 to 7 minutes. Let the mixture cool for 30 seconds.

Hope yall enjoy this!
