How to Make a Caramel Brûlée Latte

When I first heard about the Starbucks Caramel Brûlée Latte (quite often incorrectly called a Crème Brûlée Latte, especially by my husband), I headed to the nearest Starbucks. As expected, my kids wanted a Skittles Frappuccino and, feeling a little adventurous, I tried the Caramel Brûlée Latte.

Side note: If you haven’t heard of Skittles Frappuccino at Starbucks before, it’s part of their secret menu so you won’t normally see it on a menu, you have to ask for it. And if you want to save some cash, my Skittles Frappuccino recipe does a pretty good job of mimicking the Starbucks version.

Anyway, while I was enjoying my drink, I realized I now have a new favorite next to the classic Vanilla Latte. To my dismay, these two favorites are seasonal so I can only have them from November until January.

The only good solution is making my own. Luckily, it’s fast, easy, and inexpensive.

It’s a clear win for me since this is another recipe I can add to my ever-growing list caramel recipes.

How to Make Caramel for Coffee

Anything you can make at home is always the best, in my opinion. It gives you the chance to make it for family and friends on any occasion, anytime you want. Be it food or beverages, my stance is always the same – it’s best when it’s homemade.

Even my coffee isn’t exempt. No, I don’t make the coffee beans or the cream at home, but I do make some sweet syrups in my kitchen.

Do you remember I mentioned a while back how I go to Starbucks with the kids on lazy Saturdays? The moment it became more frequent, the homemaker in me calculates in my head how much I can save if I just make them their Skittles frappuccino at home.

The secret drink is not a secret to them anymore and they’d order it at Starbucks every chance they can get. Being able to hack that recipe makes me save so much, I just have to make sure I have enough berry and vanilla syrup in the pantry.

But you see, while I’ve gotten the kid’s drinks out of the way, I still find myself sneaking a cup of caramel macchiato once in a while. And when I say once in a while, that also means any chance I can get. It doesn’t matter if it’s Starbucks or any other coffee shop as long as I have a dose of caramel in my coffee.
