I first shared this Salted Caramel Dessert coffee on my friend Amanda’s site, and even though it’s a super simple recipe – it is absolutely delicious and not to be overlooked.

The most important ingredient – after the Kahlua – is large flaked sea salt, like Maldon.

A sprinkle of the flaked sea salt either BEFORE you add the whipped cream or after is absolutely essential to really develop the flavors of this hot winter cocktail.

The salted caramel Kahlua is also delicious if you just want to mix 2oz of it with 2 oz of hot coffee and top with whipped cream, caramel and salt.

Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the Salted Caramel Kahlua needed for this recipe from them.

How to Make a Caramel Dessert Coffee

Prepare your coffee however you’d like. Each cocktail only needs a measured cup.

If a more pronounced salted carmel flavor is desired, stir a teaspoon of caramel sauce into the hot coffee to dissolve.

Spiral on some whipped cream and drizzle caramel sauce overtop.

If desired, sprinkle some large flaked sea salt overtop to really bring out that Salted Caramel flavor.
