Easy Creamy Salted Caramel Mocha! If you love mochas then this easy at home version is for you!

The holidays are all about tradition for me.  Every year I can’t wait to trim the tree, hang stockings and spend ample time with friends and family.  The holidays can get a bit busy though and I find that I need to take little breaks to help me relax.  One of my favorite ways to relax is sitting by the fire with a hot cup of coffee.  I find that the busyness of the holiday seems to subside when I take the time to unwind.

One of my favorite coffee flavors has always been caramel.  This Easy Creamy Salted Caramel Mocha is so delicious and it’s a holiday recipe favorite of mine.  Salted Caramel Mochas are something I like to get at a coffeehouse and I knew there had to be a great way to make them at home.  I start out by adding a Tablespoon of Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra Creamer for the creamiest taste.  I love this particular creamer because it’s extra sweet and creamy!  I found my Dunkin’ Donuts  Creamer at Target.  Right now Target Cartwheel has a 5% off coupon on Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Creamer from 12/1/15 – 12/24/2015 which is a sweet deal!  Target has so many great holiday creamers available like International Delight Peppermint Mocha and International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie.  I love having a variety of creamers for my coffee breaks.

For this recipe I add the Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra Coffee Creamer and I also add 2 Tbsp. of caramel candy to the hot coffee.  I let it sit for a minute and then stir.  Some of the caramel will settle to the bottom and this is okay!  I just enjoy an extra sweetness right at the end.  I also like to add a bit more sugar and cocoa powder before adding the coffee.  I top it off with some whipped cream, melted caramel and some finishing salt.  So good and perfect for a little holiday break during the day!

I love easy methods to get the coffeehouse taste that I want and I have made this recipe several times now.  I enjoy taking this little coffee break during the day and it’s a great time to reflect on what the holidays mean to me.  What is your favorite way to take a break during the business of the holidays?
