Salted Caramel Macchiato

What a week it has been.  Trips to the doctor with sick kids, tackling the laundry and paperwork in between trying to make the kids feel better. Plus every night I wake up at 3:00 and think it’s time to get up.  Who gets up at 3 in the morning?  Certainly not me!

I made myself a little treat yesterday afternoon as a little pick-me-up to keep going, a nice Salted Caramel Macchiato.  I couldn’t exactly run down to the Starbuck’s on the corner, since it’s an hour and a half away.  Plus I had my favorite dulce de leche just sitting on the counter staring at me.

I had never made a Salted Caramel Mocchiato before, so I googled a few recipes, of course I didn’t have espresso, or caramel syrup or any fancy pants stuff like that.  I concocted my own version out of coffee, milk and dulce de leche.

I was really craving a slice of Caramel Mocchiato Ice Cream Pie and that’s what gave me the inspiration for this coffee.  So I sat down for 5 minutes with my Salted Caramel Mocchiato and did a little internet research on ways to stop a constant cough.  I didn’t find anything new but I was getting desperate.

I got my reluctant  little guy into a steamy shower and it did help.   Have I mentioned that I can’t wait for Spring?  I think when the weather dips down to 6 degrees one day and peaks at 58 the next, it doesn’t help our head and chest colds at all!

I’m pretty sure I am coming down with this crud that the children have, so I will be making this again today.  For sure.

I would love for you to enter my giveaways if you haven’t already! Country Outfitter Gift Card, Le Creuset French Oven, and the Petit Jean Easter Ham.  Thanks Y’all!

Love. Salted caramel is my weakness, and macchiatos are my favorite.
