“a base of caramel paste, rock salt from Lorraine, and fermented butter” blended into a frappe and topped with whipped cream, caramel sauce, peanuts, and a vanilla macaron.
McDonald’s Godiva Chocolate Frappe, on the other hand, is made with Belgian chocolate and comes topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings, and a chocolate macaron.
