Caramel Mocha Latte Love Potion

What I love about cooking is that you really can reach a person’s heart through his/her stomach. I know because I’ve done it. And not only that but you can find your own heart, too. Adding a splash of this or taking away a dash of that, you can find out how much passion you have, how much you’re willing to risk, what really matters to you. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll also get ideas for other things (& not just recipes either), this idea sparking that idea flashing into another idea. Like anything creative, too, it’s about connecting with people and making them feel something. And this crock-pot recipe for a love potion* (a.k.a. caramel mocha lattes) will make you & them feel joy.

Prep. time: 5 minutes. Cost: Less than $5. Serves: 6.

YOU’LL NEED:

  • 2 8-ounce cups strong brewed coffee (I used Starbucks Espresso grounds or you can just double the amount of coffee grounds you normally would use to brew coffee)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup liquid caramel** (I used Hershey’s Caramel Topping for ice cream ~ comes in a glass jar)
  • 1/2 cup liquid chocolate** (I used Hershey’s Hot Fudge Topping for ice cream ~ comes in a glass jar. Follow the label directions & microwave with the cap off for a minute before pouring)
  • Whipped-cream and chocolate shavings (optional but highly recommended)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add all of the above except whipped-cream & chocolate shavings into the crock-pot.
  2. Stir.
  3. Cover & cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
  4. Stir then ladle into mugs (refrigerate any leftover).
  5. Top with whipped-cream and chocolate shavings (optional).
  6. Be careful, it’ll be very hot.
  7. Enjoy!

*Love potion results not guaranteed.

**You can play around with this, use less or more depending on how sweet you like your mocha lattes.

    Oh Shelli,
    You are my hero! An amazing writer and now…a recipe for delectable mocha lattes in a crock pot! Thank you! LOVE your blog. :D Have an incredible week!

  2. Sadly I don’t drink coffee, but that looks really good. I almost want to start :)

    • Hi Mike! Wow, you don’t drink coffee? Really? Sorry, I LOVE coffee so it’s hard to believe that other people don’t drink it. :) That recipe really is good, though.

      • Yeah, for some reason I just never developed a taste for it. It might be because my dad always drank it black, which didn’t look that appealing, so I probably never thought of it as something I might like.

        But it looks like they sure do creative things with coffee nowadays.

  3. Yum, yum and YUM! :)
