  • Milk
  • Handheld milk frother

  • Caramel sauce
  • Large 12 oz. coffee mug

Make your own specialty coffee at home and start saving the money you have been spending on your daily coffee shop visits. You can put together a white chocolate caramel cappuccino right in your own kitchen without an espresso maker. The next time you need a sweet treat to warm up in cold weather, enjoy this fancy drink that is surprisingly easy to make.

Step 1

Brew a small pot of very strong coffee using an electric coffee maker. You will only need about 2 oz., but it may be easier to make more if using a large machine. To do this, use double the amount of coffee grains as you would normally use for a cup of drip coffee.

Step 2

Heat 4 to 6 oz. of milk on the stovetop or in the microwave, without letting it come to a boil.

Step 3

Melt about 1 tbsp. of white chocolate chips in the microwave using a microwave-safe bowl.

Step 4

Pour hot milk into a sturdy mug and use a handheld milk frother to froth the milk and create plenty of foam.

Step 5

Place some melted white chocolate into the bottom of your serving mug and top with about a tablespoon of caramel sauce. Pour in about 2 oz. of hot, strong coffee. Stir if desired.

Step 6

Top with about 4 oz. of milk and then fill the mug to the top with milk foam. Drizzle with additional caramel sauce if desired.


  • Use less white chocolate and caramel for a less sweet drink. Use a darker roast coffee for a more robust flavor that will mimic the taste of strong espresso.


  • This is a high sugar, high calorie drink, so enjoy it in moderation.
