All it took was exam stress to create this. Tastes like starbucks, but much cheaper! To be honest, all the ingredient sizes are approximate...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. combine the coffee granules and hot cocoa mix in a mug.
  2. Add the hot water and stir to dissolve.
  3. Stir in the Dulce De Leche or Caramel Sauce. Make sure it fully dissolves into the coffee!
  4. Top with skim milk, stir once again, and drink.
  5. You can chill it I guess, but I never do, it just goes straight down.
  6. For aesthetics sake I guess you can strain out any undissolved bits, but I'm way too lazy :P.

WOW oh WOW is this good! I am addicted to Starbucks iced coffees - but they sure add up quickly! I decided to try this and am honestly blown away. It's the closest replacement I found. I also love that you don't have to get out a blender! I took Mikekey's advice and added 2 ice cubes. THIS is a keeper! Thank you so (so!) much for sharing this one.

Tastes like the real thing! I also like that I didn't have to haul out the blender and try to blend ice cubes with it, although I added 2 ice cubes to the drink to chill it more. I used decaf coffee granules, since I like these types of drinks in the afternoon, but don't want the caffeine. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.

This was pretty good. I used a 25 cal pkg of hot chocolate and sugar free carmel all for around 150 calories and no added sugar. I also added a full cup of skim milk instead of the 3/4c. It was a good pick me up for that mid. afternoon drag.
