Brûlée Caramel Coffee

I love coffee, but I’m not always a consistent coffee drinker. I used to keep a pitcher of iced coffee in my refrigerator at all times, but one day I just stopped making it. No particular reason, although maybe I was bored with the same thing every morning. Who knows? But I’ve had coffee on my mind lately, and I decided I’d give hot coffee a try for a change. This Brûlée Caramel Coffee recipe caught my eye because I just happened to have some extra homemade caramel sauce from the Baby Chai Caramel Fudgey Brownie Cakes I recently made. I can’t let that yummy sauce go to waste, and this recipe sounds like a great way to use it up.

The Ingredients

As I mentioned, I had homemade salted caramel sauce leftover from a recent recipe. Don’t let the salted part put you off! Adding a bit of salt is a trick to neutralize the bitterness.

I also had brown sugar, coffee, and whipped cream (leftover from the Pumpkin Caramel Milkshake I recently made) on hand. All I had to buy was the milk, and you know how much I love those short grocery lists!

The Process

I started this recipe by warming the caramel sauce in my microwave. It was too thick to pour straight out of the refrigerator. A 30-second burst and a good stir took care of that.

Next up was brewing the coffee. I decided not to time it since hot coffee was an ingredient and making it wasn’t part of the recipe. I’d guess it took me 8-10 minutes using a French press.

Once I had my ingredients ready, I got to cooking. The milk, brown sugar, and caramel mixture heated up fairly quickly, and it was as easy to make as it sounds. Just add everything to a saucepan and stir.

I had two big mugs of caramel coffee made and topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce in just 7 minutes.

This brûlée caramel coffee really does taste like something you would get in a coffeehouse. It's not too sweet, just the right amount of creamy, and has a toffee-like flavor from the caramel sauce. I'd say it's a perfect combination of flavors! It's also quick and easy to make, and I had mine done in just 7 minutes. This caramel coffee is a nice weekend treat for you and that special someone. Or just you if you're not a morning person like me 🙂
