Craving a salted caramel mocha but don’t want to leave the house?

Here is how you can make a deliciously creamy caramel coffee drink from the comfort of your home.

As you can tell, I love making coffeehouse drinks at home.

Not only does making my own coffee drinks usually save money, but it also allows me to choose the ingredients.

Pinning lots of coffee drink recipes is a great idea for party planning, too.

Perhaps you want to create a coffee bar for your next gathering.

Review all your pins to line your bar with the necessary ingredients.

Salted Caramel Mocha Drink Recipe

This salted caramel coffee drink is not overly sweet.

If you like drinks like this sweeter, add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar or sweetener with the milk and cocoa.

What makes this recipe extra delicious is the salt and sugar on the top!

That salty-sweet crunch on top of the whipped cream makes this drink extra scrumptious!
