Technically, this isn't a latte in the truest sense; it's a bit of a hybrid drink, but it's delicious. I don't have an espresso maker, so instead this drink uses extremely strong black coffee from a French press, and blends it with steamed and slightly frothed milk. There's also caramel, vanilla simple syrup and a Heath bar rim involved, so there's that. And that is good. Adam really loves Heath bars, so I decided to make these for him when he got home from work. I didn't realize he would be sweating after an 82 degree walk, but he devoured it nonetheless.
