Whats the one thing your family consumes the most of during this holidays? For my family, ( both sides) it’s coffee. Especially when it is cold outside.
Also, I am seeing more and more, that the people in my family gift consumables. Gifting consumables is a great way to give something thoughtful, that you know will be used. I would much rather receive some nice coffee as a Christmas gift than something I wont use, like a santa shaped back scratcher or list your silly junk item here.
Growing up in the Chicago area, Dunkin Donuts was just one of those classic places we all loved. As a kid, we always brought Munchkins in as birthday treats, and the coffee was always known for being the best.
You can find Dunkin Donuts Coffee in the coffee aisle in Wal-Mart. It is in the same aisle where you find tea, jams and hot cocoa.
I created an easy salted caramel coffee recipe to gift along with Dunkin Donuts Coffee. It turned out really cute.
I also included a bottle of carmel sauce and cocoa powder in with this coffee. It turned out really cute. It is really easy to make specialty coffee drinks at home, without an espresso maker or any other kind of specialty coffee maker. I worked at a coffee house when I was a senior in college, and one tip I learned, is to stir flavor into your coffee really well.
Another important tip for making specialty drinks at home, is to heat up milk or cream before stirring it into your coffee. this way your drink wont become too cold before its all gone.
Of course I had to try this recipe out before I gifted it. I actually purchased HUGE container of Dunkin Donuts Coffee for myself during this trip to Wal-Mart.
