Copycat Starbucks Caramel Macchiato

I am literally obsessed with Starbucks' Caramel Macchiato. I have been getting one every time I go somewhere within range of a Starbucks. I'm telling you! OBSESSED! Then recently when I went grocery shopping, I saw that Coffee-mate had a caramel macchiato flavored creamer!  So, of course I had to get it (I needed creamer anyway).  Then a great idea came to me: make an at home version of my fav caramel macchiato from Starbucks!

This is totally the easiest and best thing ever. You don't need anything fancy like an espresso machine; you only need coffee, creamer, and caramel! This recipe will taste more like the Starbucks version if you use Starbucks brand coffee, so that's what I did.

Please continue to the yummy recipe!!

First, add the caramel and spread all over the glass.

Next add the caramel macchiato creamer.

Then add your Starbucks coffee and ice!!

Maybe add some more ice...

Add whipped cream and more caramel on top, if desired!!!
