Red Velvet Latte

Red Velvet Latte

Who needs a boring cup of coffee each morning? I think I’ve taken the latte to a new level here with this creation. I’ve managed to transform a red velvet cupcake into a Brownie, Rice Krispie Treats and a Hot Chocolate so why not coffee?

Red Velvet Latte

My original cupcake latte inspired this recipe. It’s chocolatey aroma is a wonderful accompaniment to the espresso. It also turns the milk a little…red.

Red Velvet Coffee Syrup


1 1/4 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup red velvet cake mix

1/2 tbs cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla


  1. Sterilize a jar. In a small sauce pan bring the water and sugar to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cake mix, cocoa powder and vanilla.
  2. Pour the mixture through a sieve into the sterilized jar and refrigerate. Use within one month.
  3. Use 1-2 teaspoons (or to taste) of the syrup in your latte before adding the frothed milk.
