Caramel Macchiato on a Budget

My hubby’s favorite drink at Starbucks is a Caramel Macchiato. According to the Starbucks website, it includes a “creamy vanilla-flavored syrup, freshly steamed milk with a topping of velvety-rich foam, an intense hit of our Espresso Roast, a finishing of buttery caramel drizzle”.

My husband has found an alternative to this pricy drink, that provides him with the same caramel taste but for a fraction of the cost. Caramel Macchiato on a Budget / from Life of Momma B

Begin by brewing a pot of coffee. Before you pour your coffee add one Cadbury Caramel egg to the bottom of a large cup. Top off the cup with coffee and stir until the egg is dissolved.

In full disclosure – I have not tried this recipe. I personally cannot stand coffee, but my hubby loves it and this will be the third year that he has enjoyed this.
