Mochas are already a combination of two delightful ingredients, coffee and chocolate. That’s one good combo right there. Now, a caramel mocha coffee brings in a third crowd-pleasing flavor — caramel.
So, chocolate, coffee and caramel, my favorite c-words. Now, let’s make a cold drink out of them! Here’s a recipe for an authentic iced caramel mocha coffee, a drink that goes over the top with your favorite flavors.
Although this drink has many layers of flavor, you only need seven ingredients, including the ice, so it’s really not at all hard to put together. You’ll need an ounce of freshly brewed espresso, another one of chocolate syrup, and a third ounce of caramel sauce or syrup. Milk will help bring all the flavors together.
At this point, the drink is already reasonably good, but let’s take it to the next level with a thick vanilla ice cream layer and whipped cream. Save some caramel sauce, to drizzle over the whole thing — this drink is fit for royalty!
To make this drink, brew a strong espresso and combine it with the other three flavoring agents, the chocolate syrup and the caramel sauce. Now, we want this drink nicely layered, so pour the coffee mixture into a glass and top it with ice, vanilla and whipped cream.
Unlike other creamy coffee drinks, this one comes together in the serving glass, so you don’t have to blend anything; just build the drink one element at a time.
This flavorful coffee specialty is basically dessert, so serve it after a hearty meal. Of course, you can treat yourself to one of these any time of the day, especially if you’re planning to spend the day in your pajamas in front of the TV. Let’s check out the recipe and make ourselves the most decadent mocha coffee ever! I hope you’re in for a treat!
Brew the espresso and combine it with the chocolate syrup and caramel sauce. Set aside.
Fill your serving cup with the whole milk and add the coffee mixture. Stir until dissolved.
Add the ice into the glass with the milk mixture and gently float the vanilla ice cream.
Garnish with whipped cream and drizzled caramel sauce.
