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!
