Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer

March 1, 2013 • Beverages, Recipes

Dear Alaska from Scratch,

I’ve become totally addicted to your coffee creamers! When you get a minute or two, will you consider creating/sharing some “all seasons” creamers with us? 

Many Thanks in Advance,

Gaelle from France 


Dear Gaelle,

Thank you for your request. I’m so pleased that you enjoy all my DIY coffee creamer recipes – and you are correct – it seems they are all holiday and seasonal flavors. Thank you for inspiring me to remedy this and offer some year round flavors, too. I truly hope you enjoy this Salted Caramel version I’ve created just for you.

Hugs from Alaska,

Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer

Yields: 3 cups creamer

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups half-and-half

To a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water and the sugar. Stir until the mixture heats up and the sugar dissolves, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Measure 1 cup of the mixture, also known as simple syrup (save any remaining for another use or discard). To the 1 cup of simple syrup whisk in the vanilla and salt. Allow the mixture to cool 5-10 minutes and then add it to the 2 cups of half and half. Stir well.

Keep creamer in a sealed container (I use a Mason jar) in the refrigerator. Use as you would store-bought coffee creamer. Shake or stir before each use.
