A sweet coffee that’s so simple to make, perfect midday treat!
Coffee, there’s nothing like it! The smell, the comfort, the taste, all of the components come together in one glorious cup. For me coffee is part of my morning routine, just as much as showering and getting dressed. An appearance by this beloved drink gets my day started, happily. I normally drink a couple of cups of coffee each day, one as previously mentioned practically fresh out of bed. The other will happen sometime mid-morning. This is normally when my day starts to get hectic.
Hectic in the sense that I work from home and this is the time of day I’m in “work mode”. I’m plugging away at the computer, checking things off my to-do list and getting as much accomplished as I can before my kids start rolling in after school. Mid-day is when I get work things done, I don’t have time to stop and drive to a fancy coffee shop for a coffee. That would take precious time away from me getting work done and break up my productivity. This is when I grab my canister of Folgers instant coffee and whip up a little something special like an Easy Caramel Coffee in roughly 2 minutes.
Easy Caramel Coffee is easy because I’m using Folgers Instant coffee , it takes only a couple of minutes to make myself a sweet treat that will get me through that mid-day hump. I easily heat some water, add 1 teaspoon of Folgers instant coffee and the basis of this at home fancy coffee is done. I always have a squeeze bottle of caramel in the refrigerator, we use it on ice cream frequently. So why not add a little squeeze into my coffee? Along with some 1/2 and 1/2 and you could be done.
I decided to take it up another notch and it takes literally 30 seconds to add a frothy layer. I have a battery-operated handheld frother that I bought at a big box store for just a couple of dollars. Simply pour a small amount of cold milk in a measuring cup and get frothing. So simple! Now spoon that frothy layer onto of your coffee. You could be done with this step and enjoy your fancy at home coffee, but why stop when you can add just a smidgen of whipped cream and a final drizzle of caramel. VOILA! In less than the time it takes to get in your car you have a delicious Easy Caramel Coffee at home. And back to work I go, I only walked as far as my kitchen, spent just a couple of minutes and I’m back at my computer with a delicious coffee treat courtesy of Folgers instant coffee.
