If you're a fan of Nutella, coffee and Krispy Kreme, this is basically your dream come true. It would be hard to find someone who doesn't love at least two of those three things, so I'd say most people will be pretty pumped to know about the new Krispy Kreme coffee and hazelnut spread.
Metro reports that that Krispy Kreme has launched a Caramel Macchiato spread. It's similar to Nutella, but has so much more to offer.
According to Tasting Table, the new spread is caffeinated. It's made with real, premium Arabica coffee beans and hazelnuts. Basically, you can use it to spread your coffee onto your morning toast rather than drinking it from a mug. Personally, I'll take my coffee hazelnut spread on toast along with a nice hot cup of coffee. Who doesn't need a little extra jolt in the mornings? Especially on Mondays …
Unfortunately, if we want to believe that Instagram post by Junk Banter, the spread won't be available until it hits Walmart shelves later this year. How late is later? I need to try it now!
If you're like me and dying to try a caffeinated sweet spread with your breakfast (or any time, for that matter), Tasting Table has a pretty decent answer. It's a homemade coffee butter recipe that is sure to hold you over. Who knows, maybe you can combine it with a jar of Nutella and make do?
Just use some finely ground coffee, 2 cups of heavy cream, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, a half teaspoon of kosher salt, cheesecloth and flaked salt if you want to get fancy and have a garnish.
Take the heavy cream and mix it with ground coffee and steep that overnight in the refrigerator. Strain your coffee mixture the next morning, pushing out as much milk fat is possible, and discard the ground coffee. Take your newly strained liquid and put it into a food processor with the sugar and kosher salt and spin it into a butter! The liquid will separate and you can transfer the mixture to cheesecloth and squeeze out the excess liquid. That's that! Use your new butter (garnished if you'd like) right away or put it in the fridge for later.
The recipe makes a half cup of the yummy spread, so double up if you want to make extra for later. This should be enough to keep you satisfied until the new Krispy Kreme stuff hits the shelf. Get creative and add hazelnuts or Nutella and see what you can do in the meantime!
