Xylitol Salted Caramel Mocha

Thanks to Statbucks free birthday drinks, I have discovered the joys of salted caramel with espresso and mocha. The craving does not just go away so I decided to come up with my own sugar free version.

I consider recipes suggestions so I started here.

Here is what I did.

Ingredients (more or less!)
5 tbs xylitol
3 tbs butter
2 tbs cacao powder
2 tsp heavy cream
2 long shots reused espresso (grounds already used once)
Sea salt to taste

Heat xylitol over medium/high heat until bored. It was supposed to turn amber but it just seemed to melt. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Add a dash of cream and the cacao powder and salt.

Pour the caramel over the weak espresso and share with someone. Yum!

Chew each bite.
