Ever since I got a new job last year where a Starbucks is located LITERALLY up the stairs from where I work, my coffee budget has gone through the roof. I work so early in the morning, so every minute extra in bed counts. It’s so much easier to just order my iced americano from the app on my drive into work rather than getting up and brewing my own espresso before I head out the door.
BUT, I am not proud of the fact. With Christmas coming up, I tend to spend more and more time in the kitchen, so I thought I could learn some Starbucks copycat recipes, both for the drinks and bakery items, to hopefully get me in the habit of just making my own coffee and breakfast instead of reloading my app over and over and over again.
These are some of the yummiest ones I’ve found!
1. Copycat Starbucks Cranberry Orange Loaf Recipe
Citrus + cranberry is a perfect holiday mix. This recipe doesn’t look too bad at all, and it even includes how to make the frosting from scratch.
2. Copycat Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Recipe
Candy canes are one of the best treats of Christmas, so Starbucks’ peppermint mocha is always A+ in my book. But, it’s so easy to make one at home!
3. Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones Recipe
TWO icings on one scone?! How decadent! But, this recipe doesn’t even call for cream. That means it’s healthy, right?
4. Copycat Starbucks Triple-Layer Carrot Cake Recipe
Wow. This is a little bit more advanced than I’ve tried, but I’m definitely up for the challenge if it means I get to eat this afterward.
5. Copycat Starbucks Ginger Molasses Cookies Recipe
I just realized I have all these ingredients in my pantry right now, except the molasses… Guess I know what the first one I’m going to make is!
6. Copycat Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Recipe
Why does adding salt to the to the top make it 100% more delicious?! I’m not even a caramel person, but I love this drink. Well, the mocha version, at least!
7. Copycat Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte Recipe
Sweet and spicy! I’ve never actually HAD a cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks, but after reading this recipe, I might have to try one out. You know, for research sake when I try to make this recreation.
8. Copycat Starbucks Eggnog Latte Recipe
Frothy, creamy, sweet, with a little nutmeg spice — I cannot get enough of this drink. This recipe even tells you how to make the frothy eggnog foam with just a mason jar!
9. Copycat Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars Recipe
Decadent, creamy, sweet … this is the quintessential holiday treat. It might take a minute to make, but well worth it for that first, second, third, and hundredth bite.
10. Copycat Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider Recipe
Simple, but classic. Adding cinnamon dolce syrup to it adds a ton of flavor. Obviously, caramel drizzle doesn’t hurt either.
11. Copycat Starbucks Caramel Brule Latte Recipe
Another simple recipe — are you starting to see a pattern? Maybe making these every morning won’t be as hard as I think!
12. Copycat Starbucks Mini Vanilla Bean Scones Recipe
These are so dainty, and so yummy. I’d love to make a huge batch of these and have them on Christmas morning for present opening.
