Millstone Coffee Breakfast Blend Chocolate Brownies

A few weeks ago, I wrote how we tried Millstone Coffees, so this time, I thought I’d try baking with it. Baking? Yup!

We were sent two more flavors of Millstone Coffees to try:

Caramel Truffle

THE SMOOTH, CREAMY CARAMEL FLAVOR AND WARM, BUTTERY FINISH MAKE THIS LIGHT ROAST A TANTALIZING TREAT ON ITS OWN OR AS A PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO YOUR DESSERT.

I wanted to try something different, so I decided to make brownies using Millstone Breakfast Blend coffee.

Have you tried Millstone Coffee in your every day baking and cooking routines? If not, what are you waiting on? I never, ever, thought to use coffee with baking and cooking. This experience taught me to think outside the box.
