Dunkin Donuts Coffee Gift Basket Giveaway

Giveaway is closed– Check the Community page for the winner

Guess what I’m giving away today for Fabulous Friday Giveaway?  I think the big orange and pink letters gave it away. A Dunkin’ Donuts Gift pack!  We don’t have many Dunkin’ Donuts shops around here, so I was thrilled when they wanted me to review their coffee and even more thrilled to find out you can buy Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend packaged coffee at the grocery store now!

todays creative blog Probably much safer……..at least you won’t be tempted to buy a yummy donut too.  dunkin donuts coffeeI tried their original blend and I liked it!  Living in the NW, I’ve become a bit of a coffee snob…….it’s what we do here. But instead of just saying “hey, I liked it”, I thought I’d try a recipe using their coffee too. dunkin donuts coffee giveaway

I adapted the recipe from one I found on MyRecipes.com

Tangy Coffee Barbecue Sauce

BBQ sauce recipe using coffee


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup dunkin’ donuts brewed coffee

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

Combine ketchup, coffee, brown sugar, onion flakes, garlic powder and chili powder in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in pepper, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce.

Enter to win the Gift Basket!  One lucky winner will receive one bag of Original Blend, one bag decaf and 2 Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Mugs.

Please leave me a comment telling me if you’ve ever used coffee in any recipe?  Or do you just prefer to drink it?  Oh I love my coffee.

I received compensation for this post, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t tell you the truth about how I feel about Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee!  I was happy to review it since I have never tried it before.  Would you like to try it?  Enter the giveaway and you can also visit their site to find coffee promotions, coupons, special offers and more.

    I put a spoon of coffee into my morning oatmeal – so it is a 2 in 1 breakfast, food and wake-me-up drink in one bowl 😀

  2. Kathy H says

    I’ve used coffee in several recipes. I’ve made a chocolate cake and chili that both had coffee in them. It adds a richness to the flavor but not a strong taste that you could recognize. I miss Dunkin Donuts. When we lived in Maine we had one close by our home and we stopped in several time a week. We don’t have one where I live in SC. Sure do miss it! Be blessed.

  3. judidarling says

    I am a DD addict–I even bring some with me on vacation–just in case. I regularly use coffee in brownies, chocolate cake and chocolate icing. I also tried it in a brisket recipe–not a total success. In general, though, yummy!

  4. Sarah says

    I have not used coffee in a recipe, but I do like to drink it & my hubby LOVES dunkin donuts coffee. He’s a new englander :) They do love their dunkin’.

  5. Ashley @ The Latest Find says

    I haven’t tried coffee in a recipe yet, but I bet it would be good! =) Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I love dunkin donuts!!

  6. Emily says

    I love my coffee in any form, but my favorite way is by IV drip straight into my veins :-) Thanks for the giveaway – I *heart* Dunkin Donuts coffee!

  7. JustVal says

    At the moment, I am drinking my morning cup of coffee, not DD coffee but still good. I have not tried coffee in recipes “YET” but oh I am now. Love the recipe. Thank you for such a wonderful give-a-way!

  8. Lauralee says

    I can’t think of any recipe that I’ve made that used coffee….but I sure do love to drink it! Right now, I have a gallon in my fridge that I use to make iced coffee (Pioneer Woman’s recipe) and it is delish! Would love to try some Duncan Donuts coffee as I’ve never had it before!!

  9. Susan says

    Love Love Love my DD coffee. Being in the south it’s sometimes hard to find, but my grandmother used to send me a few bags from NY every holiday (thank God for Grandmothers!). I’ve used coffee in baking (cakes, brownies and cookies) but not so much in regular cooking. It makes dark chocolate cakes fabulous!

  10. Carol Douglass says

    Oh coffee, I am not sure if you consider my home made Frappe a recipe, but it is made with coffee ice cubes. How about coffee frosting on a chocolate cake? YUM

  11. EFY says

    Years ago, I learned to add coffee to chocolate frosting to give it a good dark flavor. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Ricki Duke says

    I haven’t cooked with coffee but I do drink alot of it. I do reuse my coffee ground and put them in the flower beds. They make good mulch for the worms. Love to win some Dunkin Donuts coffee, love it.

    • joann says

      love to drink coffee , bake with coffee , and nothing is better when I use coffee grounds to feed my house plants , and flowers beds

  13. Deborah says

    Besides loving coffee I have used it to make coffee ice cream. Um-m-m great!

    BTW, thanx for the giveaway … would love to try DD’s coffee.

  14. shawn says

    BH&G red cookbook has a great recipe for Cappuccino Crinkles. They use instant coffe, but still a favorite years after my first bite! I also LOVE to make tarimisu!!!! mmmmmm…. 500 lbs later!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Sandyb says

    I am a coffee snob!! My b rother in law was nice enough to bring us a BIG can of another brand of coffee and refused it because we only drink Dunkin. He looked at me like I had two heads but that is one luxury we afford ourselves and it is COFFEE!! We have to drive 20 miles for dunkin, so we stock up.

    I have used leftover coffee in many recipes – to add flavor to frosting, cakes, etc. I am certainly going to try your recipe and give it to my daughter – she is a bbq sauce junkie!!!

    Thank you for sharing!!

  16. Stacy says

    Oh yes, I do use it in recipes….but my ultimate fav is to make coffee drink recipes. Cafe mocha, anyone?!

  17. Jennie P. says

    I love coffee! I have wanted to try Dunkin’ Donuts for a long time. Living in a rural area we don’t have any dunkin donuts. I would have tried it when they started selling the ground coffee in grocery stores but it was too expensive to try if it turned out I didn’t like it. Thanks for this chance!

  18. says

    I live in Canada, so no Dunkin’ Donuts here. We love coffee – dark roast. I’ve used coffee in dessert recipes, but never anything savory. I’ll have to give it a try, especially since my husband is in the midst of building a smoker.

  19. Sharon S says

    I live in the NW now, but really began loving DD while on the East Coast. One of my favorite places. Still beats the competition. I use coffee occasionally in Mexican dishes. Drinking DD coffee just brings back memories.

  20. says

    Oh, how I love coffee – I prefer to brew my own and pretty much drink it all day long. I love it so much it is a part of my website name (the wired part). Dunkin Donuts is my absolute favorite and we buy it in the big bags because you can never get enough. I haven’t used it in a recipe, I prefer to slurp it up. But have thought about an IV bag once or twice……

  21. Patsy Duncan says

    I am just a coffee drinker but this recipe does look tasty. My last name is Duncan and I do work in a cop shop (911 emergency dispatcher) how fun would it be to take this basket to work!!!

  22. Valerie says

    I made a chocolate mocha triffle for my sister’s birthday and it was delicious! I’ve also recently started drinking coffee in the morning & would love to try Dunkin Donuts!

  23. Tammy Willaimson says

    I prefer to just drink it, but since I usually make it special, it turns into a recipe of sorts anyway!

  24. Keri Andrews says

    I have never used coffee in a recipe NOR do I drink it, but my husband LOVES Dunkin’ Donuts coffee! I love the smell of it in the morning too, but I prefer to stick with my chai tea.

  25. says

    Never used coffee in a recipe before… I don’t particularly like it, but my husband does! this coffee prize pack could be an awesome Father’s Day gift! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Sherra Swailes says

    I don’t think I could “waste” a good cup of coffee in a recipe! :) I love coffee too much!

  27. Julie R. says

    I love my coffee too! There is nothing better in the morning. I can acutally hear when my coffee finishes brewing on the weekends. Needless-to-say, I wake up happy!

  28. says

    i recently made a Coffee Cake that required a cup of fresh brewed coffee! it was YUMMY! and i love love love DD coffee. We used to live in Brunswick, ME and we were coffee snobs too. Since we’ve been stationed out west we miss those happy stops at DD. one of the things we are most looking forward to as we head back east this summer!!

  29. kathy h says

    I have never used coffee in an recipe as I consider myself a new coffee drinker. I started out with Starbucks, but that became too pricey, so my hubby and I had to find something to make at home that wasn’t too coffee-ish-tasting, but was cheaper. So, we’ve been drinking Yuban with some, or a lot of vanilla creamer. Anyway, so I’d be very interested in trying some Dunkin Coffee!!

  30. Cindi says

    Whoo Hoo! This is a delectable prize basket giveaway…..
    I have made cakes with coffee as an ingredient and they are delicious!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  31. Heather Spooner says

  32. kendall says

    I have my great grandmothers molasses spice cookies. It has a cup of brewed coffee in the recipe and they are so good.

  34. Debbie Chouinard says

    I use coffee in my chocolate frosting recipe and to thin out hot fudge topping for ice cream…and of course I love coffee.

  35. says

    Coffee makes chocolate recipes even better, so I always add a little coffee to brownies or chocolate cake. We love Dunkin Donuts coffee – it really is our favorite! What fun it would be to receive the coffee and mugs! Thanks for the chance to win!

  36. Rachelle says

    I haven’t heard of using coffee for anything other than improving the flavor of chocolate. I will definitely have to try this recipe! I would love to win this giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity!

  37. Susan H. says

    I haven’t ever used coffee in cooking but have seen many chocolate cake recipes calling for it that I would like to try.

  38. Sue Smilesalot says

    Well, I’ve used coffee as a special enhancer for truffles. The coffee brings out the chocolate flavor. But it was instant coffee.

  39. truelady20022002@yahoo.com says

    I have used coffee in many chocolate recipes. Makes the chocolate seem richer. I love coffee:o)

  46. says

    I have never cooked with coffee before. And, to be honest, I don’t drink it. But my husband, on the other hand, is a fanatic – don’t talk to him before he finishes his first cup! LOL. Thanks for the chance to win something for him.
