Celebrate America’s Favorite Pick-Me-Up this National Coffee Day

Celebrate America’s Favorite Pick-Me-Up this National Coffee Day

Tomorrow is National Coffee Day, let’s join the moment with this tasty recipe!

September 29th is National Coffee Day, a day dedicated to celebrating America’s favorite caffeine fix! While we will no doubt indulge with our usual morning cup of joe, let’s go the extra mile. Whipping up this delicious dessert will be a wonderful way to make coffee a true star.

Vietnamese Coffee Sundaes


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp. instant coffee mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of hot water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream


  1. Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of the sugar with the water and bring to a boil. Cook over moderately high heat, undisturbed, until an amber caramel forms, about 12 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the roasted peanuts, cinnamon, and salt until the peanuts are evenly coated. Scrape the caramel mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Let stand until the brittle is hardened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Break off 4 medium-size pieces of peanut brittle. Place the remaining brittle in a resealable plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin to crush the brittle into small pieces.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the sweetened condensed milk with the dissolved instant coffee. In another medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar at high speed until softly whipped.

Scoop the ice cream into 4 bowls and drizzle with the milky coffee. Sprinkle with the crushed peanut brittle and top with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with the reserved pieces of peanut brittle and serve at once.
