Starbucks Caramel Brulée Latte

Starbucks caramel brulee latte

The Caramel Brulée Latte is a popular Holiday drink from the so-much-sugar-it-might-as-well-be-a-milkshake-Starbucks menu. In general, I am a coffee purest, meaning that I refuse to even add sugar to my daily latte or cappuccino; but during the holidays, a nice sugary coffee-drink brings out a sense of Christmas spirit for me.

I feel like like I am drinking coffee and more like I am enjoying a caramel and coffee-flavoured hot chocolate or something, which is A-ok with me.

I put this recipe together using both my caramel sauce and the vanilla sauce below, and enjoy them both equally to the point I couldn’t choose, so the choice is up to you! Or add both, I have done that- guilty as charged!

In terms of flavor profile, this coffee based creation tastes like an espresso with caramelized sugar, finished with rich and creamy whipped cream. I would suggest enjoying it with a sweet treat, but you might over-do it in the sugar department, so enjoy on it’s own next to a fire, or if you’re in a condo like I am-the twinkling lights of your Christmas.

If you’re feeling adventurous, I also recommend topping this latte with some white sugar and torching it with a kitchen torch to get that great deep burnt sugar flavor, mmmmm. Enjoy my loves!
