Make mornings worth getting up for with a delicious Dark Chocolate Caramel Latte!
I am about as far from being a morning person as it gets. When I was a teenager, my parents struggled to get me out of bed in the morning. Then when I went away to college, I refused to take any classes that started before 10 o’clock. Eventually I became a teacher and didn’t have a choice. I thought I’d eventually get used to those early mornings but it never happened and that’s when coffee became my best friend!
I’m no longer teaching but I still get up early to get my girls off to school, then launch into my workday. Thank goodness I have Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend to get my day started!
One of the things that I love about this Medium-Dark roast is that it tastes great even before I add anything to it. It starts out smooth but finishes with a bold, distinct taste. I find mine at Publix, where you can often find a great BOGO deal.
While I used to make my coffee in a French press, now I use my new coffee maker. I can brew it the traditional way but I can also do a cold brew or brew it over ice. Most days I don’t do anything fancy and I just drink my coffee with a splash of cream and sweetener.
Every once in awhile, I decide to treat myself. One of my favorite ways to do this is by starting my day with a Dark Chocolate Caramel Latte. How can you possible go wrong with anything that has chocolate and caramel as ingredients?! I really love how easy it is because I don’t usually have much extra time in the morning.
Want to try it for yourself? First, use your Folgers Coffeehouse Blend to make a regular cup, or pot, of coffee.
Pour 2/3 cup of coffee into a glass or mug, then measure out 1/3 cup of milk.
Microwave the milk for 30 seconds. If you have a frother, you can use that, too.
Add one tablespoon of dark chocolate syrup to the coffee.
Next, add a tablespoon of caramel and stir until well blended.
Add your milk.
Top with whipped cream and drizzle with a little more chocolate and caramel. It’s almost too pretty to drink…but that’s never stopped me!
It doesn’t matter if it’s a fancy drink or just a traditional cup of coffee, I can’t live without my Folgers Coffeehouse Blend in the morning!
