Sometimes coffee is a dessert in itself. This is one of my favorite morning treats to make a Monday seem less intimidating. You'll need a battery-powered milk frother or it's just not the same.

I made this in the blender with cold coffee three large ice cubes and whole milk. I also upped the brown sugar to two tablespoons and used Starbucks butter caramel sauce. EDITED: Now that I make this to reflect a healthier lifestyle I use fat free half-n-half or fat free evaporated milk and sugar free caramel. Tastes the same but less issues with my blood sugars and I don't worry so much about calories. Very very good. Subtle sweetness. Great for those hot days when you want an iced coffee but don't want to pay 5 for one from Starbucks. Read More

This was good...I'm just not terribly fond of half & half in my coffee so I didn't like it as much as I hoped I would. Read More

This was so good! I used Splenda Brown Sugar blend and Smuckers sugar free Carmel Sauce (made with Splenda) and I couldn't tell the difference. This will be a weekend staple. Read More

This was absolutely delicious! I used caramel sauce made for coffee (Torani, I think), but since I'm a wimp if coffee flavor is too strong, I added an additional tablespoon of brown sugar. I really enjoyed it, and even with the extra sugar it wasn't too sweet. I prefer to have this over Starbuck's! And I think next time I will use the recommended amount of brown sugar to give it a try.

Wow, this was good! It reminded me of a quick version of a caramel machiato, but even tastier. I am tempted to come up with a lighter version, but this is so good I think I might just save it for a special treat. I never thought to add brown sugar to coffee. Yummy! Read More

I made this latte with 2% milk (a little more than the recipe called for) instead of the half and half and it was delicious with a lesser calorie count. I also sprinkled some brown sugar on the top because I was serving it to guests and was very happy with the visual result. Read More

This tastes wonderful. I like my coffee a little sweet so I added an extra half tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of sugar. Also like I do with all of my coffee drinks...I use ice cream and melt it then use it as creamer. Of course only use these recommendations if you don't mind sugar rushes and crashes. Read More
