I'm back with another holiday hot beverage. I seriously cannot get enough of warm beverages when it's cold outside. It's one of the only ways that I'm able to warm myself up and I have a lot of fun experimenting with different flavors in order to get a delicious beverage.
This time I started with Torani Salted Caramel syrup. At first I thought I about making a salted caramel hot chocolate but I've had a lot of hot chocolate lately and I really wanted something with coffee in it. After playing around with a few different flavor ideas I came up with the Salted Caramel Mocha.
This is a super easy beverage to make and you can adjust the ratios to make as little as one or as many as you want. There are only a few ingredients and it takes just 5 minutes to make a warm and flavorful beverage that is perfect for winter. I used Torani Salted Caramel syrup, cocoa powder, strong coffee, and milk. That's all that's in the base of this drink.
Of course you know I couldn't jut stop there. I had to go and top it off with Cabot Whipped Cream, caramel sauce, and mini chocolate chips. Not only did it taste amazing but it looked really fun too! Especially when I poured it into my funky Caleo Insulated Espresso Cup from JoyJolt.
Even if you aren't a huge coffee fan this is a great cold weather beverage. It's silky smooth with sweetness from the caramel syrup and a richness from the cocoa powder. The whipped cream just adds an additional creaminess which is the perfect compliment to this beverage.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make yourself a cup of Salted Caramel Mocha.
