Caramel Coffee Recipe

Dulce de Leche makes this coffee recipe irresistible.

Marko Goodwin
The recipe combines two South American and Mexican favorites, cafe (coffee) and dulce de leche (soft caramel, also known as manjar, manjar blanco or arequipe) into one sweet, creamy caramel-coffee drink.

Traditionally, dulce de leche is served alongside coffee on a piece of toast in parts of South America. You can make this recipe with homemade or store-bought dulce de leche, or with soft caramel candies.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes

Yield: One serving


  • 1 cup hot coffee
  • Dulce de Leche (purchased from a Hispanic market or made with this easy caramel recipe) to taste, or a few pieces of soft caramel candy


Stir well while the coffee is very hot. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
