Easy Cinnamon Dolce Latte


Yesterday I showed you how to make frothy milk with only the microwave and a mason jar.  Today…let’s put that gloriously light and fluffy milk to use.  If you’re anything like me, you love to swing by the local coffee conglomerate shop for a $6 warm coffee beverage.  Maybe it’s a Pumpkin Spiced Latte or some other coffee concoction.  One of my favorites is the Cinnamon Dolce Latte.  It’s the perfect balance of sweet, spice and java.  So of course, I had to give it a shot at home.  Right?  The result is an easy to make, no fancy espresso maker required, Nora Jones free, Cinnamon Dolce Latte.






Start off with water and cinnamon sticks.  Bring to a boil and let those puppies steep for 10 minutes.  The water will be a beautiful reddish orange color and the house will smell like Christmas.


Toss the spent cinnamon sticks and add brown sugar.  Now the house is going to smell even better.  Heat until the brown sugar is dissolved.

Cool.

Kewl.


Store the syrup in a jar in the fridge for a quick and delish edition to your next coffee or read on for an easy latte.


Brew up some strong coffee or use a stove-top espresso maker called a Bialetti.  Use this quick and easy recipe for frothed milk and assemble some deliciousness in a jiff for a fraction of the cost.


Mmmmmhmmm.  Time to go make another!
