Post by Michelle of Avery & Augustine
The moment Avery met Fern, it was love at first sight. We spent the morning “welcoming” Fern to our home and getting her settled in: decorating her doll teepee (just her size!) with a garland, reading her a book and making a pretend latte for her.
Avery got to have her own caramel latte, which was super easy and fast to make! (By the way, there’s no coffee or caffeine in this drink, so it’s a perfect treat for kids.) Here’s how we made it. We warmed up approximately 3/4 cup of milk (which you can do over low heat on the stove or in the microwave). Next, we mixed in 1 tablespoon of caramel (we used Fat Toad Farm’s goat’s milk caramel) and used a milk frother to make the top layer of the drink foamy. If you don’t have an electric milk frother, this post on The Kitchn tells you how to froth your milk. Lastly, we topped off the latte with a sprinkle of grated unsweetened chocolate.
Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending us the items for this post.
