White Chocolate Caramel Macchiato

So I thought I should fend of the chill in the air with a bit of decadence while I do puzzles and Christmas decorations. The Christmas music plays and the house is quiet. Serena is playing with her rather large horse imagining that she owns a stable full of horses. Sounds idyllic doesn't it?
Well, just for good measure I will also tell you that the living room is an obstacle course of boxes, tulle, and other decorations. I can't find the ornaments that I really want and I really should go shopping for some winter things for Serena but, you know, the crowds... well anyway I will do that eventually.
For now I will finish a cup of this and do a bit of laundry and look again... in all the same places... for the elusive ornaments. S keeps asking what time it is because she has in her mind that she needs saddle soap and the local tack store opens at 10:00, or so I would imagine. She has this vision of cleaning up the barn where her real pony lives. I wouldn't dream of inhibiting that desire! Voluntarily cleaning something is a very good thing, even if it's the barn!
2 cups whole milk
1½ cups strong brewed coffee
10 caramels
2 Tablespoons white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Real Whipped Cream
Caramel Syrup, for drizzling
Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and heat slowly till the caramels and the white chocolate chips are melted. Or melt the caramels in the microwave with a small amount of milk to speed up the process. Serve with Real whipped cream and caramel drizzle.
♥A very blessed Monday to all of you!♥

  1. Wish I lived next door...I'd be over for a mug of that! Yum!

    I'll be dragging out the boxes and making our living room an obstacle course later this week! ha. Hope you find the allusive ornaments!

    Happy Monday! xo

    1. That would be great! :)

      I hope too I do!


    2. Yay!! The lost has been found!

  2. It's funny Martha, I'm having a similar day to you with boxes filling my living room, a tree in the stand, unadorned. The only difference is that I'm without a yummy drink like you have, just plain old coffee. Do you do take out orders?:)

  3. I am SO making this. And I dread the mess of Christmas decorating!

  4. I would love it if you would join me in linking up at my weekly Clever Chicks Blog Hop:

    I hope you can make it!
