This creme brûlée coffee is so delicious and it’s such an easy recipe to make – win win!

It’s such a tasty cup of joe, that mixes the sweet and creamy flavors of the classic creme brûlée dessert with a rich and smooth coffee blend from Dunkin’ Donuts, you have to try it!

This recipe is definitely a favorite of mine. Creme Brûlée is one of the creamiest desserts, almost like a caramel, butterscotch pudding, but better! The top is caramelized sugar that creates a luscious hard candy-like shell.

The classic dessert is made with a lot of cream and sugar of course, which also sounds like the perfect flavors for a delicious coffee! We created the creme brûlée coffee using a Caramel Coffee Cake K cup to make a special brew.

With caramel sauce and some French Vanilla creamer, you have one delicious Creme Brûlée-inspired coffee! I also added whipped cream and some fun, colorful sugar sprinkles to the top.

It’s a nod to the type of sugar you add to creme brûlée before it’s caramelized!

  • Add in caramel and stir until melted, then add in the cream.

What Does Creme Brûlée Taste Like?

Creme Brûlée is a rich vanilla custard and the coffee tastes just the same! The coffee has a bitter and sweet flavor, but the caramel and vanilla flavors compliment that bitterness and go perfectly with the creamy softness whipped cream.

I would say the flavor of creme brûlée as something between vanilla and caramel. It’s a next-level coffee that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without being too overpowering.

What Is Creme Brûlée?

Crème brûlée, also known as burnt cream or Trinity cream, is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a textually contrasting layer of hardened caramelized sugar. Its flavors come across so well in this coffee recipe!

Top Tips For Creme Brûlée Coffee

  • Make sure you go for a large mug, so the whipped cream can rest nicely on top and not overflow.
  • When stirring in the caramel, make sure it has melted fully.
  • Top with sprinkles to emulate the crunch of a creme brûlée.
  • If serving to guests, make sure you include a teaspoon, so they can really get stuck into the whipped cream!
