Dunkin’ Donuts has teamed up with The Red Cross to give a coupon for a free pound of coffee to everyone who donates blood in the month of January. This campaign is currently in effect in seven states: Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachussetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine and New York. It isn’t because these states are the coldest this time of year, but because they typically see a shortage of blood donation in the winter months. For coffee lovers this may seem heaven sent, especially when this is the time of year for hot drinks. We at Babble love drinking coffee and cooking with coffee. With an entire pound of free coffee there is hardly a limit to what you can make. Here are a few delicious suggestions:
1. Chocolate Coffee Mud Cake: Enough said!
2. Pumpkin Spice Latte: Who said you can’t have coffee-shop worthy drinks in your own kitchen?
3. Homemade Hostess Cupcakes: A great recipe for a delicious chocolate cupcake made with real coffee that looks just like the ones at the store, but tastes so much better!
4. Chocolate Bundt Cake: A party-worthy cake of rich fudgy goodness the whole family will love!
