Years ago, I was a coffee fanatic. I would have a cup to wake up, a cup with a bubble bath and maybe even a cup of decaf to settle down for the night. Unfortunately, coffee is just not very agreeable with my stomach these days but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying one every once in awhile with a little dessert. These days you can find coffees in just about any flavor you can imagine. A new coffee from Donut Shop brand includes a very dessert-like Coconut Mocha flavor. Drink it by itself or pair it with an oh-so-tempting Coconut Mocha brownie. They’re kinda made for each other.

The Original Donut Shop™ Coffee, a fun brand of coffee that doesn’t take itself too seriously – aka the “quirky cousin” of the Green Mountain Coffee® family of brands is one of my new personal favorites and the coffee that inspired me to make these decadent brownies. Much like the coffee, there’s a rich chocolatey-mocha flavored brownie topped with coffee buttercream and nutty toasted coconut shreds.

Want to make these brownies at home? Well, it’s quite simple. Just take your favorite boxed brownie mix, follow the directions but add 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules to the batter. The coffee flavor won’t be that noticeable but it does enhance the flavor of the chocolate. Once the brownies are baked and cooled you can make a simple coffee buttercream with 1/2 stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules and about 1-1/2 to 2 cups of powdered sugar. Blended together you get a rich buttercream to top the brownies off with. Top it all off with some sweeteened coconut shreds that have been toasted in the oven for a few minutes to make the perfect Coconut Mocha dessert for your Donut Shop Coconut Mocha Coffee.

Want to try the coffee yourself? We’ve got a coffee lovers’ dream giveaway that includes a Keurig Platinum Brewer and a box of the Donut Shop Coconut Mocha K-Cup portion packs. If you can’t wait, check out Green Mountain Coffee online where you can buy this flavor and many, many more.
