4 Ways to Use Caramel Syrup for Coffee

Caramel, the secret behind many classic desserts, adds a delicious and unique flavour to all sweets. It is sugar that is heated to 340 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius) until the molecules break down, creating a dark golden brown colour. 

You can make caramel using two methods: dry and wet. The dry method calls for heating the sugar in a pan until it liquifies and browns. The wet method involves melting the sugar in a pan with a little water, allowing more complex flavours to develop. 

With a buttery, nutty, sour, and malty flavour and aroma, caramel can be used in a variety of ways. It can be eaten alone as a candy, used in desserts or beverages, or used to make caramel syrup for coffee.  

1. Caramel Syrup in Coffee

Caramel syrup is a fabulous way to add delicious comfort to your morning or afternoon cup of coffee. You can make coffee syrup ice cubes to add to your iced lattes or iced macchiatos to give your coffee a rich and sweet flavour. Another way to elevate your coffee is by adding a few pumps of caramel syrup for coffee directly into your cup. 


For extra caramel flavouring, use Nespresso caramel pods, caramel coffee beans, or caramel ground coffee to create the perfect cup of coffee filled with caramel goodness. 

2. Caramel & Chocolate Cake

An easy way to enhance your dessert is to create a tasty dessert sauce. Mix together caramel coffee syrup and chocolate sauce to pour over a delightful chocolate cake. Or create your own cake icing by replacing the vanilla extract in buttercream with 1 teaspoon of caramel syrup. 

3. Protein Shake Before the Gym

Spice up your protein shake with some flavour and fun to enjoy before or after your workout. Add a few pumps of caramel coffee syrup to a vanilla or chocolate protein shake for a little extra flavour and sweetness. 

4. Ice Cream Topping

Elevate your dessert by drizzling caramel syrup for coffee over your favourite ice cream. Caramel syrup goes great with coffee ice cream, classic vanilla bean ice cream, rich chocolate ice cream, and so much more. 

Or add your own twist to an ice cream float by adding a few pumps of caramel syrup into the glass first. Then, add carbonated water and scoops of vanilla ice cream for a delicious caramel treat.
