Author: Southern Made Simple


  • 1/4 cup Dunkin' Donuts Original Blend Ground Coffee
  • 1 box brownie mix your favorite brand is fine!
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • Eggs use the amount recommended on the box of brownie mix
  • Brewed coffee room temp or cold (use this in place of the amount of water or milk listed on the box of brownie mix)
  • 1 package caramel flavored instant pudding mix
  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel Sauce I used store bought for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • In a medium sized skillet, melt butter just until bubbling and pour in 1/4 cup Dunkin' Donuts Original Blend Ground Coffee - stir for just a few seconds, being sure that the butter and coffee grounds do not scorch
  • Remove from heat and pour butter mixture into a bowl through a fine mesh strainer to separate the grounds from the butter
  • Using a spoon, stir and press the coffee ground to squeeze any excess butter out of the coffee grounds and dispose of grounds
  • Combine butter with brownie mix, eggs and brewed coffee
  • Pour into a greased baking pan and bake for the time directed on the back of the brownie box
  • While the brownies are baking, prepare the instant caramel pudding mix according to package instructions and allow to set
  • Once the brownies are cooked and cooled, crumble up a few brownies and layer them into the bottom of a small jar, followed by a layer of caramel pudding and continue patter until jar is full
  • Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle
  • Enjoy!
