Caramel-Cream Macchiato Coffee

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 1 min

My addition to the perfunctory coffee drinks posted on Recipezaar. From Southern Living. Tip: Don't throw out over-whipped cream; rescue it. Add a few tablespoons of additional whipping cream, then beat on low with an electric mixer until perfect peaks appear.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat whipping cream, caramel topping and vanilla extract with an electric mixer on low speed until soft peaks form.
  2. Divide the caramel-whipped cream into 2 mugs then pour hot brewed coffee over the top.

I made this twice, as the first time I made it, there really wasn't much caramel flavoring, so the next time I made this, I used a 1/2 cup of Hershey's Caramel Topping (which was equivalent to 7 Tablespoons). The caramel flavor came through a lot more. A couple things I also wanted to mention here... 1: Be sure your coffee is really good and 'hot', as the caramel cream mixture will cool down the coffee. 2: Make your coffee a bit on the strong side, so the caramel cream mixture doesn't dilute down the flavor of the coffee. 3: Since I added more caramel, I ended up with a lot more of the caramel cream mixture than the first time I made this. I had enough cream mixture for 4 to 6 cups of coffee; depending on how much you add to your cup of coffee. 4: If using any leftover caramel mixture the next day, whip the mixture for just a few seconds, to bring it back to the soft peak stage. I found this was just as good the next day; just as it was the first time I made it. Gailanng, this was a nice way to enjoy my morning coffee, and I'd like to thank you for posting this recipe!

Such a nice treat... and a great way to use up that caramel topping that has been in the fridge forever! Made for ZWT6.
