Salted Caramel Mocha

Did I mention that I am learning to drive these days? Yes, after being in US for more than 3 years I finally decided to learn how to drive. Actually all this while we have been living in downtown where everything is at a walking distance so I didn’t really feel the need. But now that we have bought our own house which isn’t actually in downtown, it finally dawned upon me that I need to learn this.

I used to drive in India but driving in India and US is as different as chalk and cheese. First of all it’s right hand driving and then of course the biggest traffic rule in India is that there are no rules! There is no concept of lanes etc. so all this is very new to me. I drove on the freeway for the 1st time yesterday and I swear I was so so nervous that I wanted to stop the car in the middle of the road which obviously wasn’t possible! Had it been in India, I would have definitely stopped the car and asked hubby to drive but here I had to drive till we reached our destination. I am hoping to get over my fear of driving fast, actually I have never driven at such high speed so I feel like I have no control over the steering whenever the speed goes above 60 miles/hour. Hope to get better and also get my license soon enough.

After my driving adventure yesterday, the first thing that I wanted as soon as I came back home was a cup of coffee and because I had some leftover salted caramel sauce lying in my refrigerator I made this salted caramel mocha. The recipe is super simple and really taste as good as any salted caramel mocha which you would find in a cafe.

Salted Caramel Mocha Recipe-1

You can change the recipe according to how you like your coffee. Some like strong coffee, if you do too increase the amount of coffee to 3/4 cup to even 1 cup. If you like sweeter coffee, increase the amount of salted caramel sauce to 2 tablespoons. This ratio was perfect for me, but hey that’s just me you can change things are per your preference. To make this drink is ridiculously simple. First make some strong coffee and then in a pan mix the coffee with milk, cocoa powder and salted caramel sauce. Heat till it’s warm enough and then transfer to a cup. Top with whipped cream and some more salted caramel sauce and enjoy!

  1. I love a simple but good coffee recipe, I have to try this! looks yummy 🙂

  2. Salted caramel and Mocha in one cup? I’d have 10 of that, please.
    Love your recipes!!! Are you interested in becoming our official recipe partner?

  3. Girl, when you can photograph and cook like that, driving is secondary!
    Gorgeous photos, i’m salivating… not good that I’m seeing this at work.

  4. Before you know it, you will be driving like a pro. I remember when I first started driving, I was scared to drive over 45 mph, it felt so fast, and now I m passing everyone and my hubby tells me to slow down. Haha. Driving automatic is so much easier than driving a stick shift. (I m not sure if that’s what you drove in India, but that’s how it is in Europe) Honestly, i will be terrified to drive in India or any country with no lanes. 😀
    Your Salted Caramel Mocha looks great, gorgeous pictures! I don’t drink Starkbucks often, but when I do, that’s what i order. 🙂

  5. you make the best looking coffee drinks!!!! and learning how to drive?! it’s hard enough learning how to drive but learning to drive in a new country? girl, you can do it!!! you just may need to switch out the coffee drink for something stronger. 🙂 at least you’re not learning to drive in LA .. then, I would say you might not want to! 🙂

    1. Thanks Alice! haha Seattle traffic is crazy enough for me, LA I can’t even imagine driving there. I have seen the rush when I was there! GOD!

  6. I remember feeling super nervous about driving too, and that was starting from a clean slate! I think it’s probably harder to unlearn things you knew from India to then relearn here in the US! It’s a challenge, definitely! It will feel like second nature in no time though! 🙂 I could really go for this Mocha right now! It looks so decadent!

  7. This sounds like just what I need right now!!! Such a yummy sounding drink 🙂

  8. Congrats on learning how to drive! I am a big believer in driving. It provides independence and the ability to escape when needed. 🙂
    This is a great use for your salted caramel sauce!

  9. Looks amazing and fabulous, Manali.. You have an awesome blog.. and driving in india.. that is some hair raising experience for me.. sitting on the backseat even if im not driving drives me crazy

  10. Learning to drive (or re-learning to drive) is always scary. Just take your time and believe in yourself – you’ve got this!
    My Mum is going to LOVE this warm and tasty beverage. She is a huge salted caramel fan and often indulges in a mocha when we have coffee together. Now I can make her a combination of both! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Good luck with driving! You can do it! Thanks for sharing the recipe for this salted caramel mocha. I can never turn down a nice drink like this!

  12. Yum, this looks great. I love salted caramel everything so I might have to treat myself to dessert tonight!

  13. Congrats on learning how to drive in the US, Manali! I absolutely hate driving and sometimes wish I lived in an area when I didn’t have to! I’m pretty sure I’d be run off the road in India. 😉 This mocha is right up my alley! Love all of that caramel goodness! Pinned!

  14. Ahha! That’s great that you are learning driving. Good luck to you my dear! Now I know why did you make salted caramel sauce. This mocha looks so drool worthy. This is an absolute stunner! 🙂

  15. Oh my! This looks like heaven! Is it weird that I want to swim in this salted caramel mocha? Looks delicious!

  16. Wow, driving in India sure sounds like an adventure! I remember how nervous I was when I first started driving—I didn’t even feel comfortable driving above 40mph! All it takes is a little practice and you’ll start to feel more at ease. Good luck! 🙂
    And this mocha?! Holy gorgeousness! I’m drooling over all that caramel goodness—so wishing I had a cup right now!

  17. Good luck on learning how to drive! You’re going to do great 🙂 Love this salted caramel mocha! Such a delicious way of using your salted caramel sauce.

  24. Hahahaha! Manali, I *love* that driving story. Good for you girl – you are all “driving Seattle and you’re all grown up now”. Yikes! Seattle traffic IS scary. 🙂 Besides girly – you NEED to learn to drive so you can plan on coming over to my house. If that Salted Caramel Mocha relaxes you, then have one or two of those, then drive on over so we can eat together. 🙂 p.s. Looks fabulous and I’m pinning for later! xoxo

  25. Congrats! Indian traffic is ridiculous, learning to drive here is a lot easier, I bet! (At least that’s what my mom says)

  26. Hey Manali, congrats on learning how to drive in the US! That can’t be easy. I love this mocha. It goes perfectly with that delicious salted caramel you showed us last week. YUM. Pinned. 🙂

  27. hahah! Yep! Indian drive is super-no-rule driving 🙂 I agree, here on highway, it feels like car will go out of control 🙂 Salted caramel mock looks super yumm, Manali!! big slurp! pinned too 😉

    1. Thanks Savita! Oh totally, you know how it is in India even though Sarvesh says it’s easier to drive here because there are rules and I agree but somehow the speed on the freeway gets to me! :/

  28. Oh my friend, you are hitting me in a very soft spot here! Love salted caramel and love mocha! Drooling!

  29. OMG!!loved loved your recipe dear :)Mouth watering.Beautiful shots as always..
    Even I am learning driving here and I must say its same feeling with me 🙂

    1. Thanks dear! Oh wow you are learning to drive to? Awesome! Good luck, I hope we both get over our fear and get the license soon enough!

  30. Oh this caramel mocha is just calling my name! I love how decadent this looks, Manali! Totally put my regular coffee to shame! 🙂

  31. Girl don’t worry you will be fine! I used to feel the same way when I started to learn driving here but now it’s all cool and makes life so much easier when you don’t have to depend on anyone hehe! This mocha – send me a big cup!!

  32. That salted caramel mocha looks as good as anything I would get at Starbucks! Keep practicing the driving and you’ll do great!

  33. This looks incredible, Manali! With my sweet tooth I couldn’t think of anything better to drink right now. This is all of my favourite flavours in one, yum!

  34. I need this mocha right now! It sounds so much better than my boring coffee. Good luck with your driving! You’re going to do great!

  35. Haha! I totally remember learning how to drive. I had the exact same emotion as you when I got on the highway for the first time. In fact, I think I pulled over to the side of the road and was too scared to get back on. But I did it. And then it just becomes second nature…in fact, I dare say that driving becomes fun. You’ll get there! 🙂 Also, this salted caramel mocha looks insanely delicious…if I had one of these waiting for me at home, I’m not sure I’d want to drive either.

    1. haha glad to hear I’m not the only one then David! I really hope to get over my fear of speed! Thank you!

  36. Good luck and have fun learning driving Manali! I’m sure you’ll be fine, it just takes some practice! Love this caramel mocha! Pinning!

  37. Aahaaa.. Manali actually driving in abroad is much easier than India only of course you know the rules..

    Happy driving dear.. And the coffee aahhhaa.. There is so much to talk over coffee.. Loved it..

    1. I agree Sushma, that’s what hubby says too. Just that I am terrified of the speed, need to get over it. Thanks dear! 🙂
