Oh So Delicious

Every once in awhile, a recipe comes along that changes your life. You're happily going about your business, and wham, you get smacked in the taste buds with something so outrageously good that you can't help but spread the word. Well, be prepared because this delightful caramel beverage is one you'll never forget. Unless, of course, you don't like caramel. In this case, I recommend trying something else.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 mug milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together the butter and the brown sugar.
  2. Once melted, add in the milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat.
  4. Pour the mixture into a mug, and enjoy!

Please Sir, May I Have Some More?

The first time you make this buttery, caramel drink, you'll wish you had thought to double the recipe. It's rich and creamy and will surely leave you wanting more. Fair warning, though, two mugs of this in a row can easily leave you with a mean stomach ache. It's up to you if you want to risk it or not.

If you do decide to double it, make sure you have a large enough saucepan. It's also wise to keep a close eye on the mixture when you're bringing it to a boil because it goes from "just fine" to "huge mess on the stove" in a very short amount of time. Beyond that, this recipe presents very little to worry about.

Depending on your personal preferences, there are a couple of adjustments or additions you could make. One would be to add a lovely layer of whipped cream on the top. If you choose to do this, you could sprinkle the cinnamon over the whipped cream instead of adding it to the drink itself. You could also substitute pumpkin pie spice if you're not a big fan of cinnamon. This recipe is fairly simple, so you have a good amount of wiggle room.

So Sweet You'll Melt

It's already been mentioned once, but it deserves to be said again - this caramel drink is life changing. While it might not be the healthiest thing for you, it's certainly one of the yummiest. Plus, unlike lattes, it contains no caffeine, which means it's acceptable to drink it at night when you're curled up under a blanket. This hot caramel drink will warm you to the core on those chilly, fall nights. Drink up!
