It was a sad day on Sunday…
our Keurig coffee maker decided to die.
We have no idea what happened…
my husband made his coffee and everything was fine.
But when I came out an hour later,
nothing was working.
We tried unplugging it for a few minutes…nothing.
We tried unplugging it for over an hour…nothing.
We tried cleaning it out…nothing.
We tried jiggling the plug…nothing.
We tried calling Keurig…nothing…because it has been more than a year:-(
My hubby tried smacking the side of it…there was a flicker and then…nothing.
We think it is dead for good:-(
It is a good thing that I drink decaf, because I am not having huge withdrawal problems.
Although the first night I was starting to feel some crankiness set in towards evening.
(I guess even a small cup of decaf has enough caffeine to keep you a little addicted.)
Thank goodness for an awesome hubby who made a Starbucks run for us.
Maybe if I still had some of this yummy coffee popcorn,
I could have munched on that for a caffeine fix.
Chocolate covered coffee beans are a coffee lover’s dream…
especially ones mixed into white chocolate, popcorn, toffee, and marshmallows.
Bring on the caffeinated sugar high!!! I am all about that!
I totally recommend making large batches of this…
the coffee buzz will get you through just about anything!!
Still need a good coffee buzz…try one of these!

Place 1 1/4 c. white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with 1 tsp. shortening. Heat for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until melted. In a large bowl, combine the popcorn, marshmallows, and coffee beans. Toss with the melted white chocolate. Spread out on a large cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
