Caramel Brulée Frappuccino Recipe




About: Instructables Community Manager - I am powered by sugar and rainbows! For realz!

Starbucks Caramel Brulée Frappuccino is a pretty tasty seasonal beverage. Since Starbucks recently started serving it again, I thought I would try my hand at a copycat recipe. The Starbucks website wasn't very helpful when trying to figure out what to mix, and other places suggested I add Toffee Nut syrup, which I do not have. So, I went my own way.

This delicious drink mixes together Caramel, Vanilla, and Maple for a pretty tasty drink. I made this one way, but there are lots of ways to substitute or change it up to make it work for you and what ingredients you have.

*Some people have stated that I used the wrong Brulé in the name of my frappuccino. I spelled it the way I did because it was the way Starbucks spelled it and since it is a Starbucks copycat recipe, I wanted it to match their's so when people looked it up, they would also find my recipe.

Step 1: Supplies

This recipe is a single serving and makes about the equivalent of a 16oz Grande from Starbucks.



  • Whipped topping
  • Caramel sauce (I made jessyratfink's microwave caramel sauce and dripped that along the inside of the glass and put it on top)


Replace coffee with milk (or whatever you are using).


  • Blender - I use a Magic Bullet at home, it's great for making individual drinks though doesn't blend quite as well as the Vitamix
  • Ice cube trays - small ice cubes make for even easier blending
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Cups for serving
  • Straws

Step 2: Blend

Blend it all together.

Step 3: Top and Serve

Okay, for this drink I decided to have a little fun and dripped some caramel down the inside of the glass. You can also do this with your Caramel Frappuccino or Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino.

I topped my drink with whipped topping and more of jessyratfink's caramel sauce.

Starbucks tops theirs with some like sugar candy. You can probably make a simple sugar candy and cook it pretty far, pour it out, let it harden, and break it into tiny pieces. But I didn't try this so I don't know :)

    In your ingredients you list amounts as "c". My brain is saying "1/4 cent of strong coffee..." That can't be right but I don't know what it means. Please help.

    Caramel is a male gender word, so brulee doesn't end with an "e" which is reserved for female gender, I know how french is hard !

    Caramel brûlé is the correct spelling.

    I'm pretty sure the taste is wonderfull and can't wait to try it. BR

    It is very tasty :) Since it is a Starbucks copycat recipe, I just spelled it the same way they did.
