Hazelnut Steamers
Serves: 1 cup
A great alternative to hot chocolate, creamy warm milk with hazelnut flavoring. *Double the recipe for each additional cup.
Hazelnut Steamer
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Cream
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Hazelnut Flavoring (I used Torani)
Caramel Sauce
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1½ tablespoons unsalted butter
Hazelnut Steamer
  1. Heat milk in a saucepan or microwave until desired drinking temperature. Milk should be hot but not too hot that you can't hold the cup.
  2. Fill cup slightly below full.
  3. Add cream and hazelnut flavoring.
  4. Use a handheld milk frother to create a nice layer of froth on top.
Caramel Sauce
  1. In a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, combine sugar and water over medium high heat.
  2. Once the the mixture starts to boil do not stir or touch it in anyway.
  3. Let the mixture boil until it becomes an amber color. You do not want it to turn brown which can happen very quickly after it turns amber, so stay close by.
  4. Once it has turned amber, turn the heat to low and gently add cream and butter into the pan.
  5. The caramel will foam up and may rise up the sides (be careful it will be Very hot) it may also start to harden but continue to stir the mixture until it is combined. If needed turn up the heat to allow it to melt again.
  6. Let the caramel cool and once it has the consistency of a thick syrup pour over steamer.
  7. Store left over caramel in a sealed container in the fridge.
