To make this recipe you’re gonna need:

  • 2 cups of ice;
  • 1 cup of coffee (you can use espresso shots);
  • 1 cup of milk (you can use any milk to your liking);
  • 1 cup of heavy cream (for whipped cream);
  • 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar;

  • 1/2 cup of butter;

  • flour (optional).

Let’s start with a whipped cream. Add 1 cup of heavy cream and powdered sugar in a bowl and mix them thoroughly, then add a vanilla extract. Continue to blend the mixture until it thickens. To make a caramel sauce you need to mix butter, brown sugar and the rest of heavy cream in a pan. Whisk it together on low heat, and add flour if you want to thicken the sauce. When it’s ready pour it into a container and put it in the refrigerator to cool down.

Now, add coffee, caramel sauce, ice, and milk, and blend it all together in a blender. Drizzle some caramel sauce in your cup to decorate it, then pour the blended mixture, add whipped cream and more caramel sauce on top, and enjoy your drink!
