EASY Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Recipe at Home!
Now that we’re in the cooler months of the year, I love nothing more that a hot, delicious coffee. I love tea, coffee, espresso – pretty much anything that warms me up when there is a chill in the air.
I love treating myself to a Starbucks drink, however, as we all know, at $5+ a drink, it adds up FAST!! So, I’ve come up with a way to enjoy a delicious Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha right at home with just a few ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry and fridge.
What you’ll need to make this Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha recipe:
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Granulated Sugar
- Caramel bits (found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips)
- Milk – your preference
- Strong brewed coffee – you can also use a freshly brewed shot of espresso.
- Whipped Cream
- Caramel Sauce
For exact ingredient amounts and full instructions, be sure to scroll down to the recipe below at the bottom of this post.
How do I make a Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha?
I start with adding chocolate chips, sugar, caramel bits, and salt to the bottom of a sauce pan. You’ll then add milk and strong brewed coffee, and heat these on medium low heat.
Continually whisk the liquid, and as the chocolate and caramel melt. Pour into mugs and top with your preference of toppings like whipped cream, caramel sauce and chocolate shavings.
Once all the chocolate and caramel melt into the milk and coffee, you’ll have a hot, steaming drink perfect for topping with whipped cream, caramel sauce and chocolate shavings!
This is definitely a decadent drink and perfect for those mornings when you just want to relax in your pajamas, and cover up with a cozy blanket.
Want to make both coffee AND espresso at home? This is the machine I use and LOVE. The fresh espresso is amazing and the brewed coffee tastes equally fantastic. I highly recommend!
When do I serve a salted caramel mocha?
This drink is perfect to enjoy on a lazy weekend, when you want to treat guests to a delicious coffee drink, or even serve on a special day like Christmas morning!
It’s wonderful to have when you have overnight guests and want to treat them to a special drink with breakfast. Any way you have it, you’ll definitely be in for a treat!
