Don't give up your coffee money! Make handmade Galentine's gifts for under $10

Focus on creating mindful gifts, while being mindful of your spending.

Highlander Grogg Butterscotch Caramel Mug Cookie

Highlander Grogg Butterscotch Caramel Mug Cookie

If you've spent any time around the Crooks + Coffee community, you'd pretty quickly hear a strong fan club for the beloved Highlander Grogg flavor. It's a wonderful mix of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla. You can easily drink it black or mix in cream for an extra decadent cup of coffee. So, that got me thinking, if this coffee is the perfect mix of sweet, wouldn't it also make the perfect dessert? So I decided to grab my favorite cookie in a mug recipe from another blogger, Number 2 Pencil, and adapt it to the Highlander Grogg flavors!

Do you ever make a cup of iced coffee, add ice and by the time you get halfway down the cup, it's basically murky water and cream? It's never fun to take the time to make delicious cold brew and have it ruined by melting ice cubes. However, I also really love ice and have a tendency to load any glass I have with ice. So, I decided to try to make some coffee ice cubes and well, something tells me I'll be doing that alllll summer long!
