I use the recipe found here at Mom Advice for a salted caramel mocha latte. Only I make my own caramel syrup and caramel sauce using the recipes found here. Once I have a batch of each made up, it lasts in the fridge for several weeks. Jim and I often have our lattes on Friday nights for our in-home "dates" while we watch a movie after the kids go to bed (I use decaf when we're having them at night :)). This has become a special little tradition for us, and a very yummy one too. I keep canned whipped cream on hand just for these. The freshly ground salt adds the perfect finishing touch!
