You can't make these with coffee, you need to use espresso in order to make them taste like they should. Not saying this won't taste good, but it won't taste like Starbucks. Substitute the 6oz of coffee in this recipe with 2 shots of espresso and then you have have a treat!
Mine turned out absolutely disgusting. I used hershey's caramel syrup, so I think that was the problem, but I don't know. Either way it didn't turn out tasting anything like Starbucks.
This version is great. I love the Starbucks version and had to try it. Now I make it almost every morning myself. Without having to spend tons of money.
We tried this and it really does taste like Starbucks....but much cheaper :) I added extra caramel to mine. Thanks for the recipe. We will definitely make it again!
Any possibility of a 10-Star rating? Because this delightful coffee beverage deserves much more than just 5 stars. It is so good. I made it for the "I Recommend" tag game. It is Mmmmmm good, and just as tasty (maybe even better) than a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato.
This is my DD's favorite drink at Starbucks so I made this for her. I did not add the sugar, doubled the caramel syrup, and used Folgers 1/2 caffeine coffee that I doubled when adding it to my coffee maker. She said it was very good and tasted just like the original coffee drink at Starbucks......5 stars! Will be making this for her again soon. Thank you chef FiFi for posting your recipe. Made and reviewed for Comfort Cafe 2009.
My daughter wanted to try this since she got "addicted" to them while at college. We made it with French Roast coffee, but used a rounded tablespoon of ground coffee for every 6 oz. cup. We used Hershey's caramel syrup to mix into the coffee/milk mixture and used Smucker's caramel to drizzle on top as it's thicker. We used a little extra caramel syrup in the coffee instead of adding sugar for sweetness. We all really enjoyed this, even my younger teenage daughters, but personally I would like the coffee taste to come through a little more, so I would make the coffee even stronger next time. Thanks for posting. I know we'll be making this frequently and plan on also trying it iced.
I just found this posted today, and since I was trying to find something for breakfast, I tried it.. Yummy! I had some coffee cream called "Dulce de leche", I had just bought, so I used it instead of milk. Yum, yum! I will leave out the extra sugar next time tho, as it made it a little sweet, with the 'dulce de leche'.
