Ok, guys. I’m dying. Dying, over today’s recipe.

If you’ve ever tried thick luxurious drinking chocolate, (As in, the cousin of hot chocolate, but much more intense.) you are going to want to kiss my face when you taste my Drinking Caramel Recipe.

That’s right. Rich creamy caramel… That you sip.

The next time you entertain, instead of slaving over appetizers, dinner, and an elaborate dessert, why not focus on the savory stuff.

Then make a quick batch of Drinking Caramel to pour into espresso cups for a lavish liquid dessert that takes only 10 minutes to make!

This Drinking Caramel Recipe is thick and creamy with a touch of salt, yet not as dense as caramel sauce, so you can sip away.

It’s satisfying, even in small shot-sized portions. That way you won’t break your calorie bank, so to speak.

You can also add a nip of your favorite liquor for kicks and giggles. (I would go with bourbon.)

Or swirl it with homemade drinking chocolate for a steaming chocolate-caramel sensation!

Simmer another couple minutes to thicken and… Viola!

Like Drinking Chocolate? You've got to try this rich silky Drinking Caramel Recipe perfect for a after dinner drink, or liquid dessert. Smooth and velvety perfection!
Servings: 12 + mini servings



  • Place the Wholesome!™ Organic Light Brown Sugar in a large deep sauté pan. Add the water and turn the heat on medium. Bring the sugar to a low boil. Allow the sugar to boil until it darkens to a deep brown and smells toasted, 5-7 minutes.
  • Slowly, carefully, whisk in the heavy cream. The sugar will boil up at first, then firm up, but will eventually loosen and blend into the cream.
  • Add the salt and vanilla extract. Stir and simmer another 2-3 minutes to thicken. Ladle into espresso cups and serve warm.

  8. Hi Somer,

    This sounds great and I really want to make it!

    I have a question:
    Does it have to be made fresh or can I prepare it in advance?
    Can I prepare it today and reheat it tomorrow before serving? Will it keep it’s liquid texture?

  9. This is so delicious, I have always wanted a way to drink caramel:)  Your recipes are amazing, and this is my favorite one (caramel is my favorite food though lol)

    • Omg this is a thing! Yesterday I was wishing for a thick, hot drink, on the order of a shake… But hot! This definitely hit the spot. Unsurprising, since sipping chocolate is ALSO one of my favourite drinks. Now I have two under my belt for those indulgent winter days. Thanks!

  12. Made this tonight for company for coffee and ended up drizzling some over the tremisu for a bit more color.  OMG what a treat.  Thank you

  13. Your drinking chocolate and caramel are too dangerous!

  14. MMM drinking caramel with bourbon is my kind of party!

  15. I NEED this after skiing today!!

  16. Where do you purchase the cute little cups?  This looks truly delicious!

  17. You’re killing me with this post! The pics just got more and more tempting as I scrolled down, I’m definitely trying this :)

  18. Just made this, OMG! It is truly delicious. Heaven in a tiny cup.

  20. Love the sound of drinking caramel!  How decadently good!

  21. I’ll gladly take two of these cups! PINNED! 

  22. I love caramel…and this looks fabulous.  However, I’ve recently found out I’m allergic to dairy..,wondering if this would work with the milk alternatives (almond milk, cashew milk, etc.)???  

  23. I love this! I am not a fan of chocolate but do love caramel. Definitely making.

  24. Oh my gosh, delight in the cup. 5 oz of this drinking carmel has 470 kcal. I wish I didn’t know that! But still it’s worth to drink. Now I just need to run for an hour :)
