    CindiJ's Note:

    My son introduced me to this wonderful treat and the search was on! I had to find a way to make my own as I can't rationalize driving 35 miles one way to my fix. This delicious drink can now be had any time of the day or night! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. *Prep & cook times are estimated. The first few times it took me longer, each time does get easier.

When it turns a deep amber color, add the butter and stir until it is melted. Add the heavy cream and whisk until the caramel is smooth (be careful, it will bubble up when you add the cream). Remove from heat and let cool. Refrigerate extra syrup.

      This turned out great--except for the scorched caramel sauce part. More instructions about how to keep it from scorching would be appreciated, because I'm really not sure what I did wrong. I used 2 pinches of sea salt, and that amount was about perfect. Next time I may add more coffee to cut down the sweetness. But if I can perfect the caramel, it really will taste astonishingly like Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha. I can tell already.
