COPYCAT STARBUCKS CARAMEL MACCHIATO
Try this homemade version of the most popular Starbucks drink – Caramel Macchiato! Lightly sweetened vanilla milk mixed with smoky (homemade!) espresso and topped with buttery caramel sauce!
Servings: 1 cup
Prepare the espresso using a macchinetta or espresso machine. (You may use a very strong regular coffee, but you'll need to double the amount: use 4 oz instead of 2).
While the espresso is being made, warm up the milk. Froth the milk using milk frother. If you don’t have milk frother, you can use a regular whisk instead. (Just whisk the milk until foam forms).
Pour the espresso into a measuring cup.
Add vanilla and milk to the cup. Then, pour the espresso on top of the frothy milk creating a “mark” on the foam. (Macchiato means “marked” in Italian).
And the last step is to drizzle the caramel on top. At Starbucks, we make two circles around the edges of the cup and then we make a grate pattern in the middle.
