I’ve been in the mood to experiment with my homemade coffee creamers lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love my old stand-by French Vanilla Creamer that I make, but with the changing seasons I’ve been in the mood for a richer, creamier taste. After a lot of trial and error and experimentation, I came up with this Salted Caramel flavored creamer and ooooh – on a cool autumn morning, with a steaming cup of coffee – this just absolutely hits the spot!
As an added bonus, this recipe is extremely similar to my basic French Vanilla Creamer recipe. So you can easily switch back and forth depending on your mood. Also, because nobody in their right mind is going to go through the hassle of pulling out a double boiler, melting down pieces of caramel, adding some cream to keep it loose, and then combining it with their coffee creamer – I found that just adding a few spoonfuls of the store-bought caramel ice cream topping does the trick just fine!
1/2 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (save the other half in the fridge for your next batch of creamer!)
4 TBSP Caramel Ice Cream Topping
3/4 tsp Salt
12 oz Milk (1 1/2 cup)
1. Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Mix together really well, you don’t want the condensed milk to be a dense sludge on the bottom. Get your whisk out and give yourself a quick workout!
3. Pour it into any sort of container you like and store it in the fridge. It will stay fresh as long as the milk you added hasn’t met its expiration date yet.
