Caramel Macchiato with a Dark Twist

Caramel Macchiato with a Dark Twist

11th Aug 2020 - Crazy Cups

Who doesn’t love a classic caramel macchiato? A tried-and-true flavor to be sure, it’s hard to imagine it could get any better.

Well, you better brace yourself, because it just did!

We at the Flavor Nation have decided that it’s time to stop limiting ourselves to what we already expect things to taste like. Who says that caramel, cream, and sometimes vanilla are the only acceptable components in a macchiato? We’ve spent our whole lives discovering all of the wonderful tastes there are to be enjoyed, and it’s time we start using that love of flavor to keep thinking outside of the box.

It is from this creative spirit that we have forged a recipe for the next generation of the macchiato and those who love it. Today we are delivering that recipe to you. Here it is! The Caramel Macchiato with a Dark Twist!

No longer will delicious flavors remain prohibited from certain drinks just because that’s how we’ve always made them. We’re taking back flavor and we’re taking back our morning cup. We are taking back our caramel macchiato, and we’re making it chocolatey.

Can you handle it? Welcome to the future of coffee.

While building this drink is very reminiscent of some classic caramel macchiato ingredients, it starts off with one radical difference. Instead of a regular cup of coffee or espresso shot, it begins with our decadent Crazy Cups Death By Chocolate Flavored Coffee. Once brewed, prep another cup with ice, milk, and a touch of vanilla syrup. Then slowly pour your cup of coffee in (not too fast so you avoid disturbing the delicate layer between the two liquids) and top it with whipped cream and some caramel drizzle.

If you’re enjoying this delicious treat as a dessert later in the day, be sure to check out our Crazy Cups Decaf Death by Chocolate to avoid late-night insomnia. You can also get crazy with the toppings! Why not take it the rest of the way and make yourself a mocha macchiato with chocolate drizzle or even some chocolate shavings? Remember, we’ve shattered the rules for you so that you can enjoy your favorite beverage the way you want to.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram after you make it and let us know what you thought. Share your new, one-of-a-kind Caramel Macchiato with a Dark Twist with us by tagging us in your post. We are looking forward to drooling over your creation!

Love it

Death by Chocolate is my favorite Crazy Cup flavor. Without adding any additional calories with sugar / cream this coffee has the smoothest chocolate flavor as it is brewed. I offer all my friends and family this flavor when visiting. I order this over and over to ensure I don't run out of this tasty joyful item.
