Guest post - Caramel Blended Iced Coffee



Caramel Blended Iced Coffee

Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup cold strong coffee
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups ice
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 tablespoons caramel sauce (recipe below)
  • Whipped cream and extra caramel sauce for the top


Directions:

Mix all of the ingredients in the blender until smooth.

Variation:

To make a chocolate drink use 6 tablespoons of sugar and 6 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (recipe below). Use same amounts of coffee, milk, and ice.


Caramel Sauce


Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoon butter


Directions:

Combine sugar, water, and butter in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat for around 6-10 minutes. Don't let it burn. Slowly add the milk and mix well. Keep cooking until it starts to thicken and looks like caramel. (It will thicken a bit more when it cools.)



Chocolate Sauce


Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • A tiny bit of salt (yes a tiny bit is a measurement)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions:

Stir together. Boil 2-5 minutes, stirring rapidly, until sauce begins to thicken. (It will thicken more when it cools.)
