There’s just something about my favorite fall drink, the Salted Caramel Mocha from Starbucks, that brings out the big-spending baller in me.
I won’t buy a shirt from a garage sale if it is more than $2. I have a hard time spending money on décor that is more than $5. But show me a drive thru and I will think nothing of forking over almost $5 for a stupid drink that is bad for me and will be gone in a few short seconds. Why?!
You don’t need to answer that.
I know I have a problem. That’s the first step, right? Admitting it? Okay. We’re there. The second step is buying a bottle of Toffee Nut syrup of your very own. I posted this picture on instagram.
Go to your Starbucks, ask for it (or any syrup), and they’ll sell it to you for $7.95. Cheaper than two drinks. That sentence makes me kind of embarrassed. Moving on...
Here’s a quick, I’m-not-a-barista-or-from-Seattle-and-don’t-have-time-to-make-coffee-with-15-steps version. It’s not the same as the real deal, but it tastes pretty darn close!
for hot coffee: hot coffee
for iced: leftover coffee and ice, or cold brewed coffee from this recipe
half and half
Toffee Nut Syrup (get it from Starbucks, $7.95 in the drive-thru)
raw sugar (crunchy and rock like)
1.) pour your coffee into a cup, add ice.
2.) add half and half, Toffee Nut syrup, and chocolate syrup as desired.
3.) add a pinch or two each of sea salt and raw sugar.
this is so simple. I know bloggers always say that and then list 5 bazillion ingredients and 341 steps, BUT seriously. This is so simple. And it saves you money if you are prone to spending ridiculous amounts of money on coffee. WIN!
What’s your favorite drink?
