Happy National Coffee Day

by Lynn Lilly, Sep 28 2016

Anyone that knows the Craft Box Girls team knows we have an on-going love affair with coffee everyday of the year not just National Coffee Day! Being a business owner, blogger, TV personality, DIY expert, wife, friend and doggy mom makes for a very hectic life, leaving only minutes to snag a cup of delicious (much needed) coffee every morning. For years Keurig® has been my go to source for my morning brew, so I am thrilled to be partnering with them again to celebrate National Coffee Day. Today is a great day to celebrate but Keurig® puts a little extra pep in my step everyday which is an ongoing celebration for me! To celebrate I have whipped my very delicious Pumpkin Pepper Latte and Dark Magic Coffee Infused Nutella Pastries.  Check out the simple and delicious recipes below. 

And because Keurig® is so awesome they have an online special going on through Sunday to celebrate: 

  • 15% off most other beverages, including favorites from Green Mountain Coffee, The Original Donut Shop and moreEnter code “GREENSAVINGS” at checkout.

This post is part of a sponsored content campaign for Keurig Green Mountain but all projects, recipes, ideas and opinions are my own.

Now for the good stuff...... 

National Coffee Day

Pumpkin Pepper Latte



  1. First step to creating this most delicious coffee is to make the cream, which creates a perfectly sweetened cup of coffee. 
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whip pumpkin puree, whipped cream, pumpkin pie spice and pepper. This will make enough for about 4-5 cups of coffee. You can refrigerate the cream to use for multiple days.   Pumpkin Pepper Latte
  3. Place 1-2 spoonfuls of cream in a coffee mug (use 2 if you like really sweet coffee). Using your Keurig (I have the Keurig® K250 Brewer in the studio and I love it) brew a K-Cup pod of Green Mountain Coffee® Dark Magic ( this extra bold dark roast is my fav) in the mug.                                                                                                       
  4. Once brewed, stir until the cream is dissolved. TADA! You have the perfect pumpkin flavored coffee with a perfect kick thanks to the black pepper. 

Dark Magic Infused Nutella Pastries


  • 5 tablespoons of 1 brewed Green Mountain Coffee® Dark Magic K-Cup® pod
  • 2 packages of quick bake crescent rolls (makes 16)
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp Nutella 
  • 1 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • Finely chopped walnuts


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a Keurig® brewer, brew one Green Mountain Coffee® Dark Magic K-Cup® (or your favorite K-Cup® pods).
  3. In a bowl add 5 tbsp of coffee, whipped cream, butter, nutella, confectioners sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Whip ingredients until thoroughly mixed.                                                                                                                                               
  4. On a non-stick pan, spread out non-baked crescent roll triangles. Using a baking brush, brush each crescent roll with the mixture.
  5. Sprinkle each crescent roll with a heavy coating of chopped walnuts.
  6. Roll the crescent rolls up and line up up on a baking sheet, making sure they are at least 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool. Best served warm!
