Crazy Cups Caramel Pecan Cluster & Coffee Pudding Recipe

Here in Maine this time of year is fair season and of course fall is upon us so what is better than a Carmel apple or better yet Crazy Cups Caramel Pecan Cluster coffee? This is a medium roast coffee that comes in a recyclable cup along with the flavors of toasted pecans in sweet Caramel goodness. These are all compatible with Keurig pods Brewers including the Keurig 2.0 Brewer along with being gluten-free, not free and no calories. So you can enjoy the flavor of Caramel Pecan Cluster without all the fat and calories.

My Opinion: I really enjoyed this flavor and as you know coffee has many uses besides just drinking it. This medium roast gave me the pep I needed to make it through my afternoon as I was under feel like I wasn’t going to make it so he kept me going to finish my task at hand. This reminded me of can fall fair season here is always cold, raw and rainy and the smell of caramel apples with peanuts on them or pecans is a great feeling. I bet this would taste good on caramel apples mixed in the caramel. 
You can make ice cubes with these or I am going to share a recipe that will be great to make with this coffee.
Coffee Pudding
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I’m sure half and half would work too, maybe 
1/2 cup espresso, or strong brewed coffee
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a medium sauce pan combine the cream and coffee and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Watch closely as cream boils over quickly and is a disaster to clean up – speaking from experience.
In a small bowl combine the cornstarch, salt and sugar. Whisk to remove any and all lumps.
Once cream and coffee are simmering add the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Boil gently for 1 minute. Pour hot pudding through a fine strainer to remove any little cornstarchy clumps.
Pour into serving dishes then cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours.
Serve with sweetened whipped cream.

Sweet Whipped Cream
2 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients and whisk until medium peaks form. Chill until ready to serve.
