Creme Brulee Coffee ~ rich, creamy coffee and a crispy sugar brulee-type topping. The ideal cool weather beverage, perfect for holiday entertaining.

Bye-bye bathing suits, bon fires and outdoor movies. Hello cool nights with windows wide open, warm sweaters, Sunday football and bundling up for the last few boat rides around an almost-empty lake. Fall ~ my favorite time of year.

In our house, fall also means comfort food and decadent desserts (remember we said goodbye to bathing suits) so when I had a chance to combine two obsessions, coffee and anything off the dessert menu, I jumped with this Creme Brulee Coffee ~ because why choose between coffee and dessert?   

Creme Brulee Coffee ~ rich, creamy coffee and a crispy sugar brulee-type topping. The ideal cool weather beverage, perfect for holiday entertaining.While I love a cup of hot coffee, I’ll even drink coffee that’s barely room temp due to *life* getting in the way. I start every morning with a cup because for me (and probably those around me), it makes the world a better place. It’s also the energy boost I need with my 3 and 1 year old grandkids; I like to think it levels the playing field.

For more years than I can count Folgers® Classic Roast Coffee has been our coffee choice. We’ve tried other brands (usually the ones on sale), but came back to Folgers because we like knowing we can count on a really good cup of coffee every time.

Land O Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half makes a good cup of coffee even better with just the right blend of creaminess but don’t stop with your morning cup ~ it’s delicious at dinnertime too. Creme Brulee Coffee ~ rich, creamy coffee and a crispy sugar brulee-type topping. The ideal cool weather beverage, perfect for holiday entertaining.

Folgers also happens to be the brand my daughters buy now as well, making us a part of Folgers’ lasting tradition since 1850. 

Creme Brulee Coffee is a simple recipe, bundling Folgers coffee and the rich, creamy taste of Land O Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half, made with real milk and cream.

It’s indulgence done right and a recipe that’ll be on repeat throughout the fall and winter ~ especially the upcoming holiday season. Just top your Creme Brulee Coffee with a dollop of whipped cream or follow the easy directions to brulee the top like famed dessert!
