Bold Roast Coffee Flavored Breakfast Syrup with Dunkin’ Dark® Coffee

Let's be honest. Mom life isn't easy. It's fun, it's rewarding, it's worth every single moment but it's down right exhausting! I have two very active kiddos, a 1 year old and a 3 year old, so it is literally non stop from the time they wake up in the morning to the time they go to sleep {sometimes not even then}. So, needless to say I drink a lot of coffee. Since becoming a Mom, I have become a hardcore coffee lover - not just the girlie frappes anymore - I like the strong stuff! So I was giddy with excitement when I was sent Dunkin’ Dark® coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts® to try at home. Find out more below about what I thought and where you can find Dunkin’ Dark® coffee and try the rich, smooth roast yourself!  Then scroll down for my tasty Bold Roast Coffee Flavored Breakfast Syrup recipe made with, you guessed it, Dunkin’ Dark® coffee! Pour this fragrant syrup over waffles or French toast for a special breakfast. It also makes a wonderful gift for the coffee lovers you know!
Dunkin’ Dark® coffee is Brewed for the Bold and boy do I fit the bill being a Mama of two who runs a blog business at home and runs the household, even when my husband was deployed!
 It's not easy but it's worth it. I have to be bold and inspired in my job and my life! 
Dunkin’ Dark® coffee is a rich, never bitter roast. 
It is smooth and strong and keeps me going throughout my busy day! 
Introducing new Dunkin’ Dark® K-Cup® Pods!
I love that Dunkin’ Dark® is available in grocery stores nationwide in both K-Cup® Pods and in 11oz and 18oz bags of ground coffee. I use both varieties but the K-Cups are so fast and easy I love them for when I want a cup o' joe during the kiddo's nap time {aka Mama sit and relax time}.

Bold Roast Coffee Flavored Breakfast Syrup 


Makes 1 ¼ cup
1 cup strong brewed Coffee {I used Dunkin Donuts Dunkin’ Dark® coffee }
1 cup brown sugar
½ vanilla bean, split or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp butter, optional


1. Add freshly brewed coffee, brown sugar, and ½ a split open vanilla bean to a saucepan and heat over medium.
2. Whisk until smooth and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Butter adds another layer of richness to this syrup so I like to add 1 tbsp at the end and whisk in until melted. 
5. If you are using vanilla extract add it with the butter at the end.
6. Pour into a jar and serve warm over French toast, pancakes, or waffles.

I use Dark Roast coffee {Dunkin’ Dark® coffee} since the flavor holds up well when cooking.
I wanted a bold coffee flavored syrup!
Brew one cup of dark roast coffee.
Add the freshly brewed coffee to a saucepan over medium heat then stir in brown sugar.
For this recipe I use half of a vanilla bean but you can also substitute vanilla extract.
Cut the vanilla bean in half then split down the middle with a knife. 
Whisk until smooth and bring to a boil. 
Then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, cook breakfast. I made Brioche Cinnamon French Toast.
Pancake and Waffles would also be delicious drizzled with this syrup.
Butter adds another layer of richness to this syrup!
Add 1 tbsp at the end of cooking and whisk in until melted. 
Pour into a jar and keep warm.
Serve warm over French toast, pancakes, or waffles.
This syrup is fragrant and rice but not too thick! Perfect for Sunday brunch at our home.
