This Valentine’s Day, we’re brewing the love and enjoying life’s sweeter things, including a coffee and dessert bar with a vintage red Keurig® coffee maker , The Original Donut Shop® Coffee and a decadent and beautifully decorated coffee beverage, by Kate from DomestikatedLife!
Kate brewed her coffee using the Keurig® K-Select™ Coffee Maker (in vintage red, course) and made it even bolder by pressing Strong Brew on her coffee maker. The Original Donut Shop® Coffee is the perfect complement during this fun Valentine’s Day party, whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends or treating your sweetheart and celebrating the year’s most romantic day. Have some fun with it!
Feel free to mix and match some of your favorite candies, chocolates, and heart shaped confections to really make this coffee and dessert bar unique and personalized.
After all, the sweetest gifts and creations are those that come from your heart.
And now, for the grand finale: this crazily delicious looking Valentine’s Day coffee drink!
Valentine’s Day Drink Concoction by Kate:
“To make this delicious Valentine’s Day drink, start with a festive coffee mug and some chocolate frosting. Spoon the chocolate frosting into a piping bag or Ziploc bag with a small hole snipped out of one corner, and pipe a ½” layer of chocolate frosting around the rim of the mug. Next, pour some festive Valentine’s Day sprinkles into a bowl, and press the chocolate-frosting rimmed mug into the bowl to catch the sprinkles in the frosting. You can also press in a few Valentine’s Day candies and conversation hearts into the chocolate frosting too. Place the mug inside the refrigerator for about 5 minutes to keep the frosting firm.
While the mug is chilling, create some candy skewers to adorn your coffee drink. I threaded one skewer with heart-shaped marshmallows, another with heart-shaped chocolates, and put a giant cookie on the third skewer. Remove the mug from the refrigerator and drizzle the inside of the mug with chocolate sauce and caramel sauce, then place the mug under your Keurig® K-Select™ Coffee Maker, and brew a fresh cup of The Original Donut Shop® Coffee . To make this drink taste as bold as it looks, make sure you press the “Strong Button” on your K-Select™ Coffee Maker! Finish the drink off with tons of whipped cream, a drizzle of more chocolate sauce, extra sprinkles, and your candy and cookie skewers. A pair of festive straws would make this a perfect way to share this sweet coffee treat with your valentine!”
Don’t be afraid to go over the top a little like Kate did with the Valentine’s Day theme 😉
Now, just grab your Valentine or a few of your best Galentine’s and start making the day a little sweeter.
